The new BMW G82 M4 Makes More Power than BMW claims

German manufacturers tend to underrate power figures in most of their vehicles, especially their performance cars. There are many rumors as to why the power is underrated. But a German manufacturer stated that it was because they do not want to get caught overrating power figures. Manufacturers make sure that it is better to be safe when rating figures than getting a bad image. However, it does not stop the excitement of enthusiasts about the extra power hidden beneath their engines. The new BMW G82 M4 seemed as if there is more secret extra power beneath the lid.

The new BMW G82 M4 Makes More Power than BMW claims

The BMW G82 M4 was recently put on the dyno, pre-break in, by IND Distribution. It is to see how much power can the standard 3.0 litre twin-turbocharged I6 make. BMW claims that the base G82 M4 has 473 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. After the M4’s dyno test, it made 464.92 horsepower at 6,780 rpm and 408.55 lb-ft of torque at 4,530 rpm.

The numbers are smaller than what BMW claims. The numbers from the result compared to BMW claims are smaller. But what IND dyno-tested are its wheel-power and wheel-torque figures. To get how much power the engine makes, add 15-percent to the dyno figures to account for drive train loss. The BMW G82 M4’s engine makes 547 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque with the 15-percent added.

The engine has not even reached the break-in mileage yet since it is also on a pre-break-in car.  So as the engine gets a few miles on it, the power will likely go up as well. 

BMW M3 and M4 owners or soon-to-be owners should be happy right now. Knowing the idea that their cars are more powerful than what BMW claims. The same thing goes for every Audi Sport and Mercedes-AMG product. Yet, it is not as if BMW M4 owners do not know that their cars produce more power than their rival cars.
