My birthday is just a week away, and now that the M3 is 35 years old I should probably diversify my 401k. Nevertheless, the M Division builds amazing machines that make you feel young again, so we’re glad the 2021 BMW M4 Coupe & M3 Sedan have been officially unveiled. While the 6th generation of the M3 will be offered as a sedan and a Touring (wagon), all 3 models will rely on the legendary 3-liter straight-six with two turbos.
For those that demand the most from their ultimate driving machine, the Competition models will offer a manual transmission sending 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, with AWD coming next year. The latest version of the S58 engine has a closed deck, forged internals and wire-arc coated cylinders. The first production cars to have 3D-printed cylinder heads offer maximum torque from 2,750 to 5,500 with a redline of 7,200.
The turbos are water-cooled by an independent cooling system. An electric water pump runs after the engine is off to allow them to cool at a controlled rate. Both the transmission and engine oil have dedicated cooling systems, ensuring optimal combustion temperatures and reliability. The brakes measure 15″ and the M-Sport subframes are stronger than the base model cars. Brake-by-wire and adaptive suspension are also onboard to give you an incredible driving experience.
