BMW M4 (2021): Right from the start also as a competition with 510 hp

The new BMW M4 is available in two versions: with 480 or 510 hp

BMW brings the new M4 in two versions: for purists with manual transmission and as a competition with 510 hp! AUTO BILD has the information.

SSince the new BMW 4 Series was unveiled, we have certainty that the M4 will also come up with the huge, angular kidneys. The design of the sports coupe is likely to be much worse. With more shaped sheet and larger air inlets. In order to make the whole thing appear less solid than with the 4 Series, BMW should largely do without chrome elements such as the border of the kidneys – instead, black dominates. With a diffuser in body color and four tailpipes, the M4 would also be recognizable as a sports coupe at the rear. A carbon roof could save weight.

Entry-level M4 with manual transmission

AUTO BILD learned new information about the technology during the prototype drive with the M3 and the M4, among other things that the M4 will be available as a basic and even sportier competition model right at the market launch. The three-liter six-cylinder engines are fundamental new designs. Its key points are the M-typical high-speed characteristics, new turbochargers and cooling and oil supply concepts that have been tried and tested on the racetrack.

The base M4 comes with 480 PS and six-speed manual transmission, the competition model with 510 PS and eight-speed automatic. You want to deliver an all-wheel M4 later. The front axle is said to be significantly stiffer than the predecessor and equipped with newly applied, electronically controlled dampers. The rear axle lock was also improved again. It is decelerated with steel or optional ceramic brakes. Innovations also in the wheels: They are lighter and, like the competition from Porsche and Co, have different dimensions at the front and rear. In the base 18 at the front and 19 inches at the rear, as a competition 19 and 20 inches. The market launch for the new BMW M4 is probably not until 2021, but the world premiere is scheduled for autumn 2020.
