For those who don’t know, the 2015 BMW M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupe are powered by a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

oth vehicles are able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds with the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, while the top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
Both the BMW M4 Coupe and the BMW M3 Sedan are designed in a manner that it visualizes the exceptional handling properties and superior performance capability in an attractive style. The front section of the BMW M shows a face that is truly expressive. Looking at the front, the feature on the M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupe that stands out the most are the strong curves and the strongly defined three-dimensionality.
These two qualities allow the M3 and the M4 to have that expressive appearance. There are also distinguishing design elements that prove that these two models are indeed part of BMW M.
Viewing the twin headlight arrangement, it comes with a more contemporary interpretation. The use of LED technology is offered as an option. The model’s twin-bar kidney grille has the grille bars painted in black. These show the design of the BMW M’s double-spoke wheels and even have the M logo. Still on the front, the apron is designed in a powerful manner especially with three large air intakes that provide the high-performance engine and the brakes that needed cooling air.
Additional signature M design features include the typical power dome placed on the bonnet and provides a clue to the potential of the M TwinPower Turbo engine. This also results in creating space for the vehicle’s intercooler. Meanwhile the exterior mirrors are striking and when paired with the suggested twin-stalk mounts, demand that needed focus.
The mirrors have been designed in a way that it optimizes the aerodynamics for both the M3 Sedan as well as the M4 Coupe. Head of Design BMW Automobiles Karim Habib shares that the superior performance of both the M3 and M4 are clear even with just one look.
He explains that the design of the exterior of these two models comes with a visual impact that raises the level of expression of the M design language. This is highlighted by a dynamic verve, emotional appeal, and purposeful character, he adds.
