We already knew the 2015 BMW M4 Coupe had been redesigned to be, in the words of Daft Punk, harder, better, faster, and stronger. As part of the M-series of performance vehicles, it’s been on a mission to set itself apart from its humble little brother, the M3 sedan.
Aspects of this automotive masterpiece have been redesigned both under the hood and throughout the body. With a thorough use of carbon fiber and scores that rank it above its rivals, this newest M4 generation is ready to impress.
The base MSRP is advertised at $62,400, which can be achieved if you’re cheap enough to go with the non-metallic alpine white exterior, cloth/leather combination or extended leather interior, and no M double-clutch transmission. Just don’t forget the extra $950 for destination and handling.
However, if you want to indulge yourself in the many decadent modifications BMW offers, you can click and unclick for hours on the newly-released 2015 BMW M4 Coupe Configurator.
For the M4’s exterior, the color palate isn’t inspired, unless your favorite color falls along the spectrum between black sapphire and mineral (aka dirty) white. To incorporate these options, or any of the metallic coats offered, the cost increases by $550. Other potentials are:
- Sakhir Orange
- Austin Yellow
- Yas Marina
- Mineral Grey
On the other hand, the interior features a much more impressive variety of options, including multiple colors of full or extended Merino leather seats. Trim options include aluminum blade, anthracite wood, and carbon fiber.
