TAKING THE RACING LINE.
The BMW M4 Coupé has completed hundreds of tests on the racetrack in order to hone numerous innovations derived from motorsport to production maturity. The result is more than impressive: concentrated power with a breathtaking acceleration meets extremely agile and high-precision handling. In any driving situation. On any road surface. A guaranteed adrenaline rush is included – together with a knowing smile.
M COMPETITION PACKAGE.
An unadulterated racing feel: The M Competition package from BMW M4 Coupé offers even better performance thanks to an enhanced engine output, a specially tuned Adaptive M suspension, new calibration of the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the Active M differential and 20" M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres.
Driving dynamics highlights in the M Competition package
The output of the M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine has been increased to 331 kW (450 hp). The M sports exhaust system generates a particularly powerful, characteristic engine sound that is destined to thrill. The M lightweight sport seats are equipped with width-adjustable backrests with vertical openings. The front seat belts feature fine M striping. The specially tuned Adaptive M suspension provides optimal road contact, increased traction and more agile handling.
Exterior highlights in the M Competition package
On the exterior, the M Competition package makes a great impression with exclusive, forged and gloss-lathed 20" M light alloy wheels Star-spoke style 666 M with mixed tyres. The athletic character is emphasised by the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line with extended features, which runs in Black high-gloss from the front kidney grille over the gills to the model designation, ending at the black chrome-plated tailpipes.
M 6-speed manual transmission
The M 6-speed manual transmission in the BMW M4 Coupé exemplifies intelligent lightweight construction. Inside the transmission, the new carbon fibre friction lining in the baulk rings provides more comfortable gear shifts, and a dry sump lubrication system ensures a more efficient supply of oil.
7-speed M double-clutch transmission
Shift gears without interruption in tractive force, without using the clutch and without slowing down: the 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic makes this possible. Gears can be changed automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or the gear lever. Launch Control guarantees maximum acceleration from a standing start.
ACTIVE M DIFFERENTIAL.
The Active M differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.
By electronically regulating the shock absorbers, Adaptive M suspension automatically ensures the vehicle is perfectly tuned to suit the driving conditions. The suspension settings can be modified for high comfort or sporty dynamics via the COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes on the Driving Experience Control.
Launch Control allows maximum acceleration from a standing start. It adjusts the engine to its ideal starting speed, and the M dualclutch transmission constantly sets the gearshift points so that when shifting up, the next optimal engine speed is available.
M Drive allows for the individual configuration of the DSC mode, the appearance of a Head-Up Display and personal driver profiles – from comfortable gliding all the way up to a sporty and highly responsive set-up – by adjusting the engine, damper and steering characteristics, as well as the transmission. Activation is as simple as touching one of the two M buttons integrated into the multifunction steering wheel.
M Servotronic adjusts the power steering to suit the current speed and ensures a direct and precise steering response even at high speeds. It also ensures supreme comfort by minimising the physical effort required for steering, as well as maximising agility when parking, manoeuvring or navigating narrow or twisting roads.
M dynamic mode
M dynamic mode, a sub-function of Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), allows a certain degree of wheel slip, thereby noticeably improving driving dynamics. While DSC works against understeer and oversteer, the M dynamic mode enables the full exploitation of the car's maximum longitudinal and lateral dynamic potential. However, access to the support offered by DSC is retained.
M compound brake
As a result of the use of different materials, the M Compound brake achieves not only outstanding deceleration values, but also high stability and a long service life, as well as a reduction in weight that has a positive effect on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The brake callipers in Blue metallic with M lettering mark the M specific high-performance brake system. Due to the specific design, temporary noises can occur occasionally after a long, low or extremely high load, which disappear again after a short time. In order to avoid functional noise, it is appropriate to load the brake at regular intervals with some stronger braking. With moisture on the brake discs, the brake system can be braked dry to avoid noise. The functional noises have no influence on the performance, operational safety and stability of the brake.
M Carbon ceramic brake
With the optional M Carbon ceramic brake, the use of braking power is even more direct, it is corrosion-free, even more heat-resistant, greatly reduced in wear and contributes to weight savings, which has a positive effect on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The special technical equipment is visible through calipers in the colour gold matt with M lettering on the outside. Due to specific material properties, increased operating noise may occur during braking, e.g. in case of prolonged, low load or in wet conditions shortly before vehicle standstill. The design-related noise can be avoided by braking the brake dry in case of wetness or loading the brake more heavily after a long, low braking load. The influence of wetness and road salt cause brake effectiveness to correspond to that of a conventional brake system. This reduced braking power can be compensated for with a greater pressure on the pedal. The functional noises have no influence on the performance, operational safety and stability of the brake.
