BMW M4 Coupe gets 520 hp from Lightweight

Article by Christian A., on September 22, 2014

BMW’s new M4 Coupe is getting more and more attention from tuning companies and the latest one to take a closer look is Lightweight. The tuning company, located in Mittenaar to the east of Herborn of the Hesen State, decided that the German coupe needs a design upgrade and as a result it installed a new front spoiler lip made out of carbon fiber and an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing.

Moreover, the M4 Coupe gets a new exhaust system but also a new braking system featuring 4 piston saddles and endless brake pads at the front and rear. The braking system is hidden behind the new 19-inch BBS wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Inside, Ligheright will offer a new safety cage, sport bucket seats with six-point safety belts, an adjustable front spoiler blade, carbon fiber air diffuser and a rear boot lid.

If you don’t remember, the standard BMW M4 Coupe gets a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h. The M Driver’s Package increases the top speed at 280 km/h or 174 mph.

Lightweight boosted the maximum output delivered by the engine to an impressive 520 hp (375 kW) and 650 Nm of torque. In order to upgrade your M4 Coupe at Lightweight, you will have to spend a hefty 89.000 euros. Still, pricing includes the price of the vehicle, which starts at 72,000 euros in Germany.
