The all-new BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe are available at BMW dealerships across India as CBU (Completely Built-Up) units.
Speaking about the event, Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “For generations, BMW M GmbH has been combining thoroughbred motor racing genes with uncompromised everyday usability. A new chapter in the fascinating history of high-performance sports cars from BMW M GmbH is beginning. The all-new BMW M3 and the all-new BMW M4 Coupe are sharing pole position. Meticulous and passion-fuelled development has underpinned the creation of two high-performance sports cars that set new standards in terms of overall concept, precision and agility.”
The all-new BMW M3 and the all-new BMW M4 Coupe deliver superior performance with a newly developed high-revving, straight six-cylinder engine and an all-embracing lightweight design concept complemented by an especially high-quality and elegant ambience. The new M engine convinces with its output of 317 kW / 431 hp as well as with its tremendous power development, which provides considerably more shove in the lower rev ranges. The engine responds enthusiastically to boost the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h.
