BMW M have released a new video teasing two of their upcoming cars – the new M3 and the all-new M4. Both these cars will get their public premieres at the Detroit Motor Show, which commences for the media on January 13th 2014. However, rumors are rife that BMW could unveil these cars tomorrow, through the popular game title, Gran Turismo 6.

The M3 and M4 will be powered by a newly developed, in-line six-cylinder engine which is described by BMW as “high-revving”. These engines will use BMW M’s TwinPower Turbo technology and would produce 430 hp and 500 Nm of torque, though the acceleration and top-speed figures aren’t disclosed yet.
While the M3 will be available as a five-door sedan only, the M4 will come in coupe and convertible guises.
Thanks to a dealer-order guide leak, we know that the M3 and M4 will be available in the following color choices – Alpine White, Mineral Grey Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic, Sakhir Orange Metallic, Silverstone Metallic, Austin Yellow Metallic, Mineral White Metallic and Yas Marina Blue Metallic.
Features such as an active blind spot detection system, lane departure warning, side and top-view cameras, full LED lights, heated steering wheel, rear view camera, head up display and satellite radio will be available on both these cars.
