We were able to see the 2014 BMW M3 without any camouflage. Video was taken by the motorcycle rider that has its helmet mounted camera turned on. All this happened while the official filming of this car was shoot.
There is no doubt that this is the production ready version of the fift generation M3 vehicle. It is quite similar to the M4 Coupe Concept from which it borrows power dome bonnet bulge and the front bumper that emphasizes it aggressive looks.
This is not the only what the 2014 BMW M3 takes from the concept car. We can see the identical carbon fiber reinforced plastic roof, guard vents, quad exhaust, rear bumper, wide guards and similar details. We do not have any objections on this because the concept car looked great.
Specs Of 2014 M3
Not so long ago we have received few details about mechanics that will be delivered by both 2014 BMW M3 and the M4 coupe. According to official source both of these vehicles will have total weight of less than 1500 kg, there are no exact specs on this. Under the hood will be the powerful 3.0 liter twin turbo six cylinder gasoline engine that produces about 316 kW and more than 500 NM.
Power will be transferred through the six speed manual transmission that, while the computer will control automatic downshift rev matching function. Other option will be the seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission that will also bring the launch control.
2014 BMW M3 Price
Shorty after the official launch we expect to see details about the price of the 2014 BMW M3 but also the M4. At this moment we can only suggest that there will be no major changes and increases compared to what we have for 2013 model.
On the images and video that was delivered we are able to see this vehicle finished in new bright blue color that could come with the name “Yes Marina Blue Metallic”. Entire video of this high performance car was taken in the Abu Dhabi in close proximity of the Yes Marina Formula One Circuit.
From BMW we could hear claims that the fuel consumption and emissions has been significantly reduced, about 25 percent lower than previous models that were equipped with 4.0 liter V8 units that produced 309 kW and 400 NM. With this in mind we can predict fuel consumption of 9.3 liters per 100 km and emissions of 218 g/km.
2014 M3 Release Date
Most likely both 2014 BMW M3 and M4 vehicles will be officially presented at the Detroit Auto Show in January while the deliveries could start in the mid of 2014th.
