The M3 & M4 Leak onto the Internet With Photos, Video & Stats

(Note – be sure to check back a little after 6 pm EST this evening for the full reveal)

The official reveal doesn’t happen until tomorrow but thanks to some of the darker corners of the internet and AutoBild we have our first look at BMW’s new M cars. We’ll save the prose for the official release tomorrow but suffice to say there’s a lot to like in what we see and read. Weight of the M4 is down to just 3300 lbs with the M3 weighing just 50 lbs more at 3350. How does that compare to the E90/E92 M3? That’s around 400 lbs lighter than the previous generation. Hell that’s only 4 lbs heavier than the 1M.

Excited? We are too. Look for much more soon.

    MMM good! Loving the M3- not sure on the color but the car looks GREAT! Loving weight loss and that CF strut bar is on hell of a piece of kit.

  • Are there going to be optional “sport” seats? The seats in both interior shots do not have adjustable thigh bolsters and are pretty flat. Also, they appear to be partially perforated but only in a narrow landing strip in the center butt rest area. If the perforation in the leather was for cooling I assume the perforation would be more than just in the center section or is this something else?

    • That was literally the first thing I noticed. We’ll have much more later this evening.

      The backdrop to these cars was the CRT. Seats will not be an issue 🙂

  • Love the color on the M4 and the CF engine brace for both. As I previously mentioned the seats are questionable. Also, I’m not a fan of the slash-cut exhaust tips. It seems very Audi Sx model and somehow cheapens the look. I’d rather straight cut, but that can easily be fixed. Besides those little things, it looks like it will be a fantastic sports car (400lbs lighter!).
