Both feature the gargantuan front grille and are expected to provide insane acceleration.
Performance off-springs of the BMW 3 Series and 4 Series – the 2021 BMW M3 four-door and M4 two-door coupes – will come with the brand’s new S58 twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine first seen on the X3 and X4 Ms.
This mill produces 473 hp in pair with a six-speed manual gearbox on the standard rear-wheel-drive models.
A hotter Competition version of the M3 and M4 will deliver 503 hp and be available both with RWD (at launch) and AWD (later on). It sends power through a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission.
The M4 Convertible, and posssibly a track-centric M3 CS version will eventually arrive too.
The BMW X3 M and X4 M SUVs with the 503-hp inline-six accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. So, the new M3 and M4 should also demonstrate the impressive 0-60 mph sprint.
The 2021 BMW M3 and M4 are set to make their official debut next month. They will reach dealerships in early 2021. Expect the prices start from $68,000 (M3) and $71,000 (M4).
