Both the 2015 BMW M4 and M3 share the same newly developed 3.0-litre 6-cylinder TwinPower Turbo rated at 317 kW and 550 Nm. When mated with the standard 6-speed manual transmission the M4 Coupe will need 4.3 seconds to complete the 0-100 km/h while with the optional 7-speed M DCT the time is reduced by 0.2 seconds.
With an aggressive exterior with modified bumpers, revised side skirts and ventilated front fenders, the 2014 BMW M3 Sedan kicks off at R958 300 for the manual gearbox. The sedan has also been equipped with a carbon fibre reinforced plastic roof, a sport-tuned suspension, an Active M Differential and an electronic power steering system with three different modes: Comfort, Sport and Sport+.
Equipped with the same engine as the M4 Coupe, the sedan can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 4.1 seconds with the optional seven-speed M double-clutch transmission reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, which is increased to 280 km/h with the M Driver's Package.
