The upcoming high-performance versions of the BMW 3 and 4 Series have been leaked online. The photos of the all-new 2021 BMW M3 and M4 were first shared by an Instagram account called carswithoutlimits.
The M3 and M4’s unapologetically large interpretation of the brand’s signature kidney grille first made its appearance in the BMW 4 Series coupe, and that car’s design has also divided opinion among car enthusiasts. It’s certainly a love-it-or-hate-it design, and we guess that is what BMW is aiming for.
This new (albeit controversial) design direction for BMW has certainly made these cars a hot topic on the interwebs. The large grille is then flanked by a pair of LED headlights as standard, though these photos showcase the optional laser headlights. As we move towards the sides of these two cars, things get a lot more conventional. The wheel arches are much wider compared to the standard 3 and 4 Series due to the wide track of these cars. There are also large side vents that draw air out of the wheel wells for better aerodynamics. Moving towards the rear, and this is where we can truly see that the 2021 BMW M3 and M4 are much wider than the standard models. There are four large tailpipes along with a red reflector mounted at the sides of the rear bumper.
The interior design of the 2021 BMW M3 and M4 remain largely the same as the standard models. Though of course, the obligatory sport seats, carbon fiber details, and M specific stitching details are there to make the interior more aggressive.
BMW did announce before that the all-new 2021 BMW M3 and M4 will be powered by a new 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 gasoline engine that puts out 473 hp and 598 Nm of torque in standard form. This is the same engine that’s also being used in the X3 M and X4 M. An M3 and M4 Competition will also be available with 503 hp and 598 Nm of torque.
A 6-speed manual will be standard, while an 8-speed automatic will be an optional extra, though we won’t be surprised if this will be the most popular transmission choice. The M3 and M4 will also be available in both rear-wheel drive (RWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations.
The 2021 BMW M3 and M4’s launch is just around the corner, so stay tuned to Go Flat Out PH to stay updated with BMW’s latest high-performance vehicles.
