BMW M4 Coupe Video Transcript
Hey, M3 fans. Get ready to whistle a new tune. It's M4 now. It's the M4 Coupe right behind me. BMW just introduced it at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. This is actually not just a coupe version of the prior M3. They completely redid both the M3, which is now just a sedan, and the M4, which is just a coupe. BMW ditched the 4-liter V8 in those cars, and has gone to a smaller displacement 3-liter straight six in these new cars, but it has twin-turbos for an output of 425 horsepower, 406 pound feet of torque. They also used a lot of aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastic in this new model to shave off weight. They've shed about 175 pounds. So, that will improve the handling and improve the performance. This M4 coupe can be had with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, BMW's DCT, or a 6-speed manual transmission. Now, you might wanna get the DCT because you shave up 0.2 seconds from your 0-60 time. In the cabin, you get all of BMW's latest cabin electronics. They've got, of course, the standard LCD on the dashboard, and a new version of the iDrive Controller which actually has a touch surface controller, too. And this includes app connectivity and Google search for navigation. Whether you get the M4 or the M3, both felt like they'll be very good performance vehicles. I'm actually excited about BMW again after seeing these cars. I'm Wayne Cunningham here at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
