It's too bad that the new BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe won't be out in time to make our Christmas list. Today BMW announced the two new 2015 models, which will officially debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month and go on sale next summer.
Both cars will feature an inline-6, 3.0 liter engine with of 425 horsepower and 406 lb-feet of torque. These figures are preliminary, but also plan on a 0-60 time of just 4.1 seconds. The M4 Coupe takes the torch from the M3 Coupe and, for the first time, the coupe will be introduced at the same time as the sedan.
The fifth-generation M3 Sedan will shed 176 pounds (80 kg) from the previous generation, the first drop of its kind. "Four generations of the BMW M3 have blended motor sport genes and uncompromised everyday usability within an emotionally rich overall concept," BMW President Dr. Friedrich Nitschke says. "The BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe represent an ongoing commitment to this philosophy."
