A sports car designed to get the pulse racing – the new BMW M4 Coupé
The new BMW M4 Coupé represents the epitome of a high-performance sports car, whilst delivering limitless everyday practicality. It is a high-speed athlete that has been developed for the race track, for the challenging road and for the most demanding of drivers, but can also take on everyday driving demands with high levels of luxury, comfort and convenience. Its 431hp M TwinPower turbo engine provides scintillating performance and its race track-bred technologies ensure total control, for a feeling of pure driving exhilaration.
The 3.0 litre M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine under the bonnet of the 2017 BMW M4 Coupé has been developed using bi-turbo direct injection and M fine tuning to give drivers the ultimate performance in all conditions. Revving up to 7,600rpm and with a maximum power output of 431hp, it is an adrenaline fuelled driving experience for anyone who sits behind the wheel, while peak torque of 550Nm provides performance that you can access with the slightest touch of the accelerator. The result is a zero to 62mph time of just 4.0 seconds when the optional seven-speed M double-clutch transmission is specified. Yet with the implementation of innovative EfficientDynamics technologies, the M4’s fuel consumption on the combined cycle is up to 32.1mpg combined and CO2 emissions are 204g/km. Mirroring the rest of the BMW M range, particularly the new BMW M4 Convertible, the M4 Coupé is intelligent design brought to the road in compelling fashion.
The new M4 Coupé achieves the perfect interplay of power unit, chassis, transmission and steering – with the driving experience being the ultimate benchmark. It does so using technologies that have been developed on the race track and honed for the road, such as the active M differential and M servotronic electric power steering, as well as BMW EfficientLightweight design, which provides a low centre of gravity and very close to a 50:50 weight distribution. Every detail of the M4 Coupé has been optimised for performance with precision, and the reward is unprecedentedly agile handling underscored by complete control at all times. And with adaptive M suspension and M driving modes boasting individual settings that can be configured exactly to suit your driving requirements, the new M4 Coupé’s performance is delivered exactly the way you want.
Unconditionally sporty and dynamic styling announces the immense performance potential of the BMW M4 Coupé, even before you’ve climbed inside. Powerful proportions, flared wheel arches and sleek, coupé lines are complemented by details such as large front air inlets and an M diffuser with angled twin exhausts. The effect is that the M4 radiates driving appeal and sporting intent, its abilities on the road highlighted by the two inlets for the air curtain and the M gill elements on the sides of the M4 - both part of the air breather function, which reduces aerodynamic drag and increases the sports coupé’s performance credentials. With LED headlights now standard, the new M4 Coupé ensures daytime visibility and perfect illumination of the road ahead at night, and new 3D LED rear lights add technical appeal to the rear styling.

You become one with the M4 Coupé as soon as you sit inside its driver-focused cabin. An ergonomic M steering wheel, M-specific instrument cluster and supportive M bucket-style seats give you everything you need for driving at the limit and immersing yourself in the drive. Luxury is never compromised, however, with exclusive finishes and striking accents complementing the progressive design of an interior that has clearly been crafted to be as sophisticated as it is sporty. What’s more, as standard the BMW M4 comes with equipment that gives it exemplary everyday driving comfort credentials.
