BMW unveiled the new M3 and M4 Coupé on Wednesday.

In addition to more power, the models now also have a manual gearbox available, although automatic transmissions are now commonplace in sports cars.

The more powerful Competition versions just get an automatic transmission.

The new M3 gets the distinctive grille of the 4-Series presented earlier this year for a more aggressive look.

In addition, the M3 and M4 Coupé will have slots on the hood and extra air deflectors on the roof.

The new M3 and M4 Coupé are powered by a six-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 480 hp thanks to two turbos.

The same block delivers 510 hp in the Competition versions.

The 480 hp manual gearboxes accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour in 4.2 seconds, while the more powerful versions with automatic transmission take 3.9 seconds.

The top speed is 250 kilometers per hour, but can be increased to 290 kilometers per hour at an additional cost.

Also new is that customers can now choose from four-wheel drive, but it is also possible to select only rear-wheel drive.

This option will be available from the summer of 2021.

The new M3 and M4 Coupé without all-wheel drive will be introduced in March.

Prices are not yet known.
