BMW reveals the M Performance Package for the 4 Series
German auto giant BMW has revealed its 4-Series coupe with M performance parts, giving us a glimpse of what the 2014 BMW M4 coupe would look like.
BMW 4 Series with the M Performance Package
The 4-Series coupe is set to replace the 3-Series coupe, and comes with an array of aesthetic changes and technical modifications.
BMW is now offering a range of performance enhancements to be made available on the new 4-series coupe from early 2014 called the M Performance Package (M PPK).
The upgrades, which were revealed at an auto show in Lisbon, Portugal, are the first clues to the appearance of BMW's upcoming M4, the successor to the recently discontinued M3 coupe, slated to be unveiled at the Detroit motor show in January 2014.
A 4 Series 428i has a 2-litre turbocharged heart that delivers 245PS and 350 Nm of torque. With the M PPK, the numbers go up to 272PS and 390 Nm of torque. The stock 435i churns out 306PS and 400Nm of torque. With the M PPK, the figures improve to 340PS and 450Nm of torque.
The new 4-series M PPK gets an aggressive aerodynamic bodykit with rear spoiler, rear diffuser, and mirror caps. The deep front bumper comes with a carbonfibre splitter and large air vents.
The interiors of the BMW M Peformance Package for the 4 Series Coupe
Customers can opt for the complete package or individual items all of which are available on a retro-fit basis through official BMW dealers.
New xenon headlamps, dark chrome trims, 20-inch alloys, tail pipes and kidney grille add to the robustness. The rear bumper comes with air extraction ducts and inbuilt diffuser. The interiors are equipped with alcantara dashboard and an alcantara steering wheel with race display. Also added to the 4-series M PPK are stainless steel pedal covers/footrest, carbonfibre gearshift and hand brake levers, and high-quality floor mats.
An optional limited-slip differential is also available with the M PPK offering 30 per cent lock-up.
