We just got this 2015 (F82) BMW M4 in and it's gorgeous! The Mineral White Metallic over Silverstone is a stunning color combination. The all-new BMW M4 Coupe sets the standard for performance-minded coupes and has something for every driver. Want power? The BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine offers 425-hp and 406 lb-ft of torque to enjoy. Want performance? The strategically placed lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic makes the M4 lighter, and more agile. Want head-turning M style? A low road stance and aggressive lines are clear signs that you've got exactly that. New M, legendary M heritage.
Car & Driver did their own testing of the all-new M4 (w/manual trans) and had this to say:
Unlike the previous E92 M3’s high-revving V-8, the new S55 engine swells with torque and offers improved drivability. It may sound like an industrial air compressor at cold startup, but its full 406 lb-ft of twist hits at just 1850 rpm, with 425 horsepower peaking at 7300 versus the old V-8’s screaming 8300. Once warmed up, the aural signature goes sinister.
The dual-plate clutch takes some care to modulate, as does the throttle when the turbos’ surge of torque overwhelms the rear tires with the traction control deactivated.
