BMW M4 production starts

The first example was driven off the line by DTM racing driver Martin Tomczyk and the managing director at the BMW plant Hermann Bohrer. It’s a stunning Austin Yellow version with black wheels.

As you may remember, the M4 coupe and M3 sedan come with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline six engine producing 317kW of power and 550Nm of torque. The engine uses a 10.2:1 compression ratio to retain lightning-quick response in the spirit of M cars.

Both the M3 and M4 are able to accelerate from 0-100km/h in an amazingly quick 4.1 seconds. This is a lot quicker than any other car in its class with rear-wheel drive. On top of this, the engine consumes just 8.3L/100km on the combined cycle.

Australian prices and launch dates are yet to be announced. We’re sure this will be a very popular model for BMW.
