TURNING HEADS.

The angled M twin tailpipes speak a clear language of pure sound. The BMW M4 Coupé stands for top-of-the-line performance, in design, an above all, on the road. The M gill with integrated Air Breather reduces air resistance in the wheel house. The black lacquered M kidney grille with double slats underlines the powerful design of the front end. The adaptive all-LED headlights with glare-free high-beam assistance and the adaptive headlights guarantee good looks during the day, and perfectly illuminated asphalt at night. The cockpit is also ready for the racetrack. Right in the middle is the M specific instrument cluster with digital displays as well as shift lights, variable speed pre-warning fields and oil temperature display.

PERFECTION – RIGHT DOWN TO THE LAST FIBRE.

The technical highlights of the BMW M4 Coupé.

M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic.

Shift gears without interruption in tractive force, without using the clutch and without slowing down: the 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic makes this possible. Gears can be changed automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or the gear lever. Launch Control guarantees maximum acceleration from a standing start.

Active M differential.

The hollow, lightweight output shafts on the rear-axle transmission and the Active M differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.

M Carbon ceramic brake.

The low weight of the M Carbon ceramic brake contributes to greater agility and improved acceleration. Due to specific material properties, functional noises may be heard in certain situations or usage scenarios, particularly when exposed to wetness prior to stopping. The influence of wetness and road salt can cause brake effectiveness to correspond to that of a conventional brake system. This can be perceived as reduced braking power, which can be simply compensated for with greater pressure on the pedal.

Double-joint spring-strut front axle.

The response of the front axle is extremely direct. Compared to steel construction, the lightweight aluminium saves five kilograms over a conventional steel design. Play-free ball joints and elastomer bearings developed specially for the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe ensure an optimum and direct transfer of forces both laterally and longitudinally. An aluminium stiffening plate, CFRP precision strut and additional bolted joints between the axle subframe and the body structure all help to increase the rigidity of the front end.

Five-link rear axle.

All the control arms and wheel carriers of the five-link rear axle are manufactured using forged aluminium, which reduces the unsprung masses of the wheel-locating components by around three kilograms compared with the previous model generation. The rigid connection between the rear axle subframe and the body – without the use of elastic rubber elements – is borrowed from motor sport and serves to further improve wheel location and therefore directional stability.

M Servotronic.

For immediate and precise steering, even at high speeds, the M Servotronic optimally adapts the steering force to the current speed. Reduced steering forces facilitate parking and maneuvering in a confined space. Fast riding around tight corners and quick steering maneuvers are optimally supported.

You can best experience the exceptional driving dynamics of a BMW M4 Coupé behind the steering wheel.

The combination of 431 hp with the automatic 7-speed double-clutch transmission and the sensational suspension system with adaptive shock absorbers is a breath-taking mix.

MOTORSPORT CHARACTER – EVEN IN SOUND.

The highlights of the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine.

M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine.

The heart of the BMW M4 Coupé: the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine. A collaboration of optimally coordinated motorsport technologies allows a thrust of 317 kW (431 hp). During extreme acceleration and deceleration manoeuvres, the BMW M4 Coupé maintains a stable oil supply to the engine thanks to an additional exhaust pump and a sophisticated return system in the exhaust gas turbocharger.

Performance in numbers.

Acceleration 0-100 km/h in s: 4.0
Power in kW (PS) at 1/min.: 331 (450)/7,000
Engine Torque (Nm) at 1/min: 550/2,350-5,500

All figures apply to the BMW M4 Coupé with the Competition package and 7-speed double-clutch transmission.

 

Crankcase in closed-deck construction.

In this construction, the area of the cylinders is largely closed. The pressure plate is perforated only by smaller channels for the coolant. The especially rigid crankcase allows for higher cylinder pressures, improves the performance yield and withstands higher loads. The coating of the circular lands with electric arc wire spraying (LDS coating) helps reduce the weight.

Racetrack-ready engine oil supply.

The M engineers’ motorsport experience is also evident in the oil supply. For example, the weight-optimised magnesium oil pan has an additional cover to limit the movement of the lubricant during intense transverse dynamics (G forces). With an additional oil suction pump and an oil return system in the area of the exhaust gas turbocharger, the oil circuit remains stable even during strong acceleration, braking or taking curves quickly.

Forged crankshaft.

A further technical highlight is the forged and highly torsion-resistant crankshaft. It is not only responsible for the transmission of a higher torque, but also, thanks to its low weight, contributes to a clear reduction of the rotating masses and thus to an optimisation of the response behaviour and the acceleration capability of the engine at the same time.

M TwinPower Turbo and high torque.

The 3.0 Liter M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine features turbocharged high torque in a broad range of 1,850-5,500 rpm. The highest output is available at a wide plateau of 5,500-7,300 /min. The maximum speed even reaches 7,600 / min. If the driver shifts at this speed, the full power is instantly restored. The integral of power over speed is significantly higher. The result is a sensation of phenomenal acceleration.

Dethrottling and intelligent turbo deployment.

The intercooler visible on the engine leads straight from the compressor into the suction system. The gradients on the exhaust side are also linear and maximum throttled, allowing for efficient consumption at high performance. In addition, the suction full-load capacity of up to 270 Nm already suffices. Many very fast driving situations occur in this torque range.
