When BMW teases, it’s more like bullying.

BMW released teasers of the 2014 M4 and M3 in the ‘Individual’ variant, sporting the Azurite Black and Mineral White body colors.

The 2014 M3 and M4 will be unveiled at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. Whilst the M3 is likely to remain as a sedan (no, this is not throwing a challenge at BMW’s overworked product planners), the M4, following this Coupe, will get a drop-top version. Both M versions will be powered by an all-new 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine.

Both cars will produce identical power and torque outputs – 430 bhp and 500 Nm respectively – thanks to BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology. As for the car itself, weight reduction has been a mantra for BMW’s engineers and it’s rumoured that the M3 could mostly weigh less that 1,500 kg.
