2014 - 2015 BMW M4
This stunning two-door coupe looks just as luxurious as you would expect anything from BMW to look. It features the elongated front end that accommodates the engine that most people have become accustomed to seeing on these types of automobiles. In many cases, it’s hard for a car to look like the epitome of luxury and look as fast as most race cars all at the same time. That being said, it doesn’t seem to be a problem for this particular vehicle. It does indeed manage to be right at home in both categories and it proves that luxury cars can perform at top levels. The car features a 3.0 liter engine that produces enough horsepower to allow it to accelerate from 0-60 in just over four seconds. It can be married to either a 6-speed or 7-speed transmission, both automatics. The vehicle also has carbon fiber parts in more than 50 percent of its components and electric power steering. It comes in both a standard configuration and a hardtop convertible. Unlike most cars, it’s so well insulated that you can scarcely hear anything outside the vehicle, so the engineers at BMW made the decision to incorporate what they call Active Sound, a system which pipes the sound of the engine into the cabin so that drivers can get the full performance car experience when they are driving.
2016 BMW M4
This was when the company introduced what is known as the Competition Package, something that makes the car look even sportier than it already does. It includes some changes to certain details of the exterior, mainly with regard to things like air inlets and trim. It also includes some items that really do provide a noticeable change in performance. For example, the suspension has been changed to make the car easier to handle. It definitely makes it easier to drive and more responsive when the car is performing at higher speeds. It also decreases the weight by several pounds, especially when coupled with the available package seats that way far less than the original seating configuration.
2017 - 2018 BMW M4
This marked the dawn of the special production M4 CS, a car that is part street driver and part race car. In fact, it really was developed as the result of cars that were winning on the racetrack, direct descendents of the M4 that was developed only a couple of years earlier. This car has a slightly shorter wheelbase than the original M4 and it sits low enough to the ground to ensure that it can perform around even the tightest of corners. It has the same engine as the standard M4 but because it weighs less, it is capable of accelerating slightly faster with the same 453 horsepower. If you have always wanted to drive a car that felt like it would be just as much at home on the racetrack, then this just might be the car you need because it is, in fact, very capable in that environment. One thing is certain, you definitely won’t be sorry of you decide to get your hands on one of these for yourself. This is a car that makes practically anyone feel like they are at home with a high performance luxury car, one that definitely sets the bar higher and forces everyone else to try and keep up.
