The BMW M3 Competition Y M4 Competition Coupé they faithfully recreate its competition-inspired character. They are much more distant this time from the Series 3 and Series 4 Coupé than in previous generations. In essence, they are more muscular, crisper and aerodynamic.
Specific M design features blend harmoniously into its modern design language. In this new generation we find exclusive shades of exterior paint, big M alloy wheels, the optional M Carbon exterior package and a whole range of M Performance accessories.
It is undeniable that the new BMW M models present a distinctive figure that is immediately recognizable from every angle.
Without a doubt, it is the vertical double kidney grill M the most controversial aspect of the exterior design. It sports a black finish and is complemented by additional large air intakes located on the sides of the grill. On both models the distinctive double bars as the hallmark of M, now arranged horizontally, include the model emblem.
The problem is that this new grill has not been liked by a large majority of the public. That is precisely the reason why there are already some automotive aftermarket specialists working to divert attention away from the front end, as is the case with Zacoe. His latest project is truly insane.
Lots of fiber and a spectacular design
As we can see in the renderings, his work is very similar to what Avante Design presented to us. The new body pack includes more aggressive front splitters, side skirts, flics at the rear, a prominent diffuser and a tremendous fixed rear spoiler. They are all from carbon fiber.
Under the hood there seems to be no change. Recall that we are talking about a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. Develop in the Competition 510 hp (375 kW) power at 6,250 rpm; as well as 650 Nm of torque available between 2,750 and 5,500 rpm.
Zacoe notes that these parts not only affect the look of the ‘M’, but also help increase downforce.
The new BMW M3 Competition and M4 Competition Coupé accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km / h in 12.5 seconds, recovering from 80 to 120 km / h in 2.6 seconds (in 4th gear) or 3.4 seconds (in 5th gear). The maximum speed is 250 km / h, or 290 km / h with optional M Driver’s Package.
