Sachin Tendulkar launched German luxury car maker BMW’s next generation M3 sedan and M4 Coupe in India at Buddha Circuit Noida. Based on the same platform as of the BMW 3-Series, the newly launched models are high-performance derivatives of the standard car, which are aimed at the rich and elite class of speed-freaks.
These two cars are designed to deliver superior experience to the driver. Beautifully designed aesthetics and sporty interiors of the cars make them look more appealing. BMW M3 and M4 were launched at an exclusive event at the Buddh International Circuit, Noida.
The highlight of the two new Ms is the new engine – the powerful yet efficient 3.0-litre six-cylinder twin-turbo petrol engine that develops 425bhp and 56.1kgm of torque. All this power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The only significant difference between the two is that the M3 has 4 doors and weighs 23 kilograms more than the 2-door M4 Coupe.
These cars sprint from 0-100kph in a little over four seconds (claimed), before going on to an electronically limited top speed of 250kph. Thanks to abundant use of lightweighting materials, both cars weigh less than 1,500kg. This not only helps performance but also fuel efficiency, which is up by a claimed 25 percent.
Secret Revealed - The reason behind naming the cars differently now is because BMW has recently adopted a new nomenclature for its entire model range. As per that, all the sedans now come with odd-numbers in their name whereas all the coupe and convertible cars are even-numbered Another significant mechanical upgrade on the new BMW M3/M4 Coupe is the introduction of an electronic power steering that replaces the old car’s hydraulic unit. More than anything else though, BMW has a reputation of building cars those have balanced dynamics and offer sheer performance
These cars also feature BMW ConnectedDrive to provide the driver with entertainment, information and other services, it includes BMW Navigation Professional (integrated GPS) and BMW iDrive with touch controller. Also these cars get Park Distance Control (PDC) rear and front (with rear view camera) as standard features. You also get a 22.35 cm infotainment screen, satellite navigation, head-up display, automatic start-stop system and an optional 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system to soothe your senses. Safety systems are in abundance as well. Airbags, ABS, DSC (dynamic stability control) etc all come as standard fitment
The M3 sedan and M4 Coupe performance twins prices starting at Rs 1.20 crore (M3 sedan) and Rs 1.22 crore (M4 Coupe), ex-showroom, pan-India These car are personally my favorite too. Whats your comment on it! You can also use our “Lets Chit #Chat” window ← to share your thoughts on this News.
