The interior gets M sports seats, door sills, instrument console, pedals and gearshift lever. The car is equipped with a comprehensive BMW ConnectedDrive system that offers a wide range of multimedia infotainment functions.
The M4 Coupe benefits from Active M Differential, Dynamic Stability Control with M Dynamic Mode and ABS to enhance its handling characteristics. The performance coupe is also packed with the EfficientDynamics measures which include break energy recuperation, 50:50 weight distribution and Auto Start/Stop.
The same 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo petrol motor which powers the M3 does duty in the M4 Coupe. With 421 PS (415.24 bhp) and 550 Nm of torque in store, the Coupe catapults from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds and hits a restricted top speed of 250 km/h.
