The BMW M4 Coupe deliveries already reached their customers and as expected it was just a matter of time to see the first crash with the brand new high-performance sports car. The first M4 Coupe crash happened yesterday in Germany, where a 20-year old driver from the eastern district of Munich managed to drive his car into some trees.
Apparently, the driver accelerated the car and lost control in a corner, then hit a traffic sign as well as two trees found in a small park.
The good news is that the driver got out of the car with few minor injuries, but the car was totaled and according to a German newspaper the estimated total damage is around 90,000 euros or around $122,000.
The car you see in the photos featured a non-metallic Alpine White paint finish and 19-inch M double-spoke style 437 M black wheels. Under the hood, there is a new 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.
This engine replaces the old V8 and can push the BMW M4 Coupe from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h. With the optional M Driver’s Package, top speed is increased at 280 km/h or 174 mph.
