With rave reviews by the motoring press behind it, the all-new BMW M4 has accepted its role as the latest M-series coupe for enthusiasts to drool over.
Packing either a six-speed manual, complete with a downshift throttle blip, or a seven-speed dual clutch, the power plant under the hood doesn’t disappoint. In a way, BMW has harkened back to its roots, reintroducing the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe to the engine that landed BMW on the performance car map, the inline six. Now, it’s a 431HP twin-turbo, a slight increase over the V8 it replaces, spinning up to a maximum 7,600 RPM. But torque is the name of the game here, increased by about 40% to 405 ft. lbs., which is happily available between 1,850 and 5,500 RPM.
Accompanying this article is the video above. Directed by Ozan Biron of The Embassy, it definitely showcases the amazing performance of the M4 Coupe as it negotiates the ultimate race track, the deck of an aircraft carrier.
As you can probably agree, this is definitely a well organized shoot and excellent job of editing. We can only guess what BMW has in store for it and the future.
