The new m4

No more m3s it will now be called m4.
Only weighting 3550 pounds because of carbon fiber brakes, hood, roof, and trunk. It will be a 3.3 liter V6 twin turbo with 450hp and almost 400 pounds of torque. That's crazy!!!!!

Actually this pic is photoshopped from another thread about this car. If you google the car. the fenders and hood are different.

Meh, you can expect that engine to have issues.

Na engine ftw. Turbos suck in reliability and on track.

Power has never been a problem with m3. Neither is mpg. So I don't get the point of changing their entire line to turbos.

Maybe it will further reduce cost for BMW to use same engine components and just tune cars differently for the trims.

The weight reduction is great. That is a nice advantage

I really wouldn't mind if that photo shop is actually how it looks. I still don't like this whole "4 series" thing but I guess we will get use to it. Anyway, this thread is gay. K bye.

Amazing aggressive look. I would sign up to grab one if it looks anything like this but it will prob be 90k or something ridiculous.
