Even though the M-series offers incredible upgrades to stock BMWs, for some people this is simply not enough. By taking their vehicle to an auto restoration shop
, they can fine-tune the performance to maximize both speed and style. One car we will definitely see modified in the coming months is the 2014 BMW M4 coupe.
Utility and performance are perfectly blended in the latest coupe from BMW’s storied M-series racing division. Replacing the traditional V8 that we have come to expect from the M series with a newly twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, BMW’s latest flagship coupe cranks out a whopping 420 horsepower. This monstrous engine of the 2014 BMW M4 goes from 0-60 in four seconds all while comfortably seating four people.
The M4 is two full inches wider than the 435i coupe. This width gives it unprecedented handling, as well as custom designed body panels like the carbon-fiber roof. Measuring in as Bimmer’s widest coupe to date, it still weighs less than its predecessor – a first for BMW. Also new this year is an electromechanical steering system, replacing traditional hydraulics. If you are like many car enthusiasts, you may be wondering what the difference is between the new M3 and M4. This year, BMW has gone with a new naming convention – all even numbered models are sedans, and odd numbers are coupes (with some exceptions).
It’s true – a muscle car restoration shop like Braun’s Automotive can help maximize the potential of your hot rod. Starting with an amazingly powerful car like BMW’s new 4 series gives these companies the ability to create some truly great vehicles. Expect these third party manufacturers to release their own variations of the M4 as 2014 rolls through.
