    BMW M3 AND M4. They're here to see!

    BMW has officially taken the wraps off the new straight six powered M3 saloon(four-door) and the M4 Coupe(two-door and convertible).

    Straight six? Yes, this is the most powerful M3 produced. The M3 and M4 boast a 3.0-litre straight six with a pair of mono-scroll turbos, giving you 431bhp with a 7,600rpm redline, and 406lb ft, more than the previous model which made 414bhp and had 295lb ft. Better still is the fuel consumption, emissions are down by 25 per cent, giving 32.0mpg and 204g/km.

    Power is provided to the rear wheels by a six speed manual gearbox as standard, but a seven-speed double clutch (DCT) transmission is available, propelling you to 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds (4.1s with the DCT transmission) and going on to a limited 155mph. Both these cars have been put on a diet, with the M3 saloon weighing in at 1523kg, and the M4 weighing 23kg lighter, partially with help from carbon ceramic brakes, and the CFRP rear-end on the M4, also both models having a roof made of the same, saving up to 6kg.

    Handling with the weight savings, and what BMW call M Dynamic Mode "allowing greater wheel slip and therefore easy drifting," should keep things entertaining and controlled.

    Inside you're treated to the standard bucket style M Sport leather seats with an illuminated 'M' logo on the backrests, a good sized boot and just for those track days, a BMW M lap timer.

    Prices for the saloon starts at 56,200, while the M4 Coupe starts at 56,650.

      can you imagine the look on some developers faces when a manufacturer releases a hideous looking car and then tells them to design a sports body kit for it. I bet they are thinking,,,, sh*t...

      Should be a while before someone comes up with a bodykit for these!
