First BMW M4 Coupe crashed in Munich, Germany

Article by Christian A., on June 24, 2014

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.
