BMW M4 to focus on lightness, not power

by SpeedLux

BMW has recently revealed some details about the 2014 M4 Coupe.

Speaking in an interview, BMW UK Project Manager Matt Collins said people need to stop complaining about the name change and should just continue to deal with it. He further said that there are a lot of things that people have had to get used to, for example, going from naturally aspirated to turbocharged engines. He expressed that the essence of what M stands for was high performance motoring which will always be there, even if the individual components change.

Collins also confirmed that the M4 will focus on delivering performance through improved used of materials rather than simply focusing on trying to make the engine more powerful. This statement naturally created doubts over a CSL variant to which he responded that currently there are no plans to build a lightweight CSL version of the M4, but he was quick to say that there weren’t any plans to do the last generation CSL either.

Collins declined to give further details but previous reports have indicated that the model will be powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that would be able to generate up to 450 hp (335 kW) and 405 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque.
