The new BMW M4 Stars in South Africa

The local BMW branch in South Africa takes advantage of its beautiful scenery to show off the newly-released BMW M3 and M4. These new cars are featured in a new photoshoot held in the Western Cape. The new BMW M4 stars in Sao Paulo Yellow, the sports coupe’s launch colour. Sao Paulo Yellow is just one of the many paint shades available for the new M brothers. And indeed, this color makes them stand out from the crowd. 

In the interior of the M4 Competition, things are just thrilling. The carbon fibre Competition bucket seats are upholstered in a two-tone leather mix of black and white. Impressively, it complements the carbon fibre inserts perfectly. It also includes a standard BMW Individual Anthracite headliner and high-gloss black as dashboard trim. The Aluminum Tetragon ornaments and the Carbon fibre high-gloss kit are two additional appointments. These features include carbon fibre trims and carbon inlays for the steering wheel and shift paddles.

The S58 engine powers the newest models, M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe. To specifically improve this engine, the BMW M division makes use of the B58 unit as its foundation. Two production levels are available for the straight-six petrol engine. The entry-level models use a 473 hp variant of the S58 engine. On the contrary, the range-topping Competition models use a 503 hp version. A six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with an M Drivelogic management unit provides control. On both the 473 hp and 503 hp Competition models, the output hits the rear axle wheels.

The new high-class M3 and M4 versions deliver a power boost of up to 44 kW / 60 PS. It also has a peak torque of up to 100 Nm over the previous Competition models. As for the regular models, they boast 550 Nm of torque over an extensive rev range of 2,650 rpm and 6,130 rpm. Boasting a 650 Nm, the Competition models produce torque continuously between 2,750 rpm and 5,500 rpm. The red line begins at 7,200 rpm, while both engines’ peak performance is entirely achievable at 6,250rpm. 

The BMW Individual program is also essential in promoting the latest M vehicles. For instance, Frozen White, Frozen Brilliant White, Frozen Black, and Frozen Dark Grey paint colours are available. This also includes Frozen Orange, Frozen Portimao, Dravit Grey, Oxide Grey, Tanzanite Blue II, and several others. Other colours are purchasable through the BMW Individual catalogue along with some of these standard colours. There is an apt colour for every M owner, ranging from non-metallic to metallic and matte options. However, the newly added shades for non-metallic include Alpine White and Sao Paulo Yellow. As for the metallic shades, the newest additions are Isle of Man Green and Toronto Red.
