BMW Confirms the Next M4 Will Develop More Than 500 hp

In a press release sent Friday, the German manufacturer confirms the next-gen BMW M4 will have more than 500 hp.

  • Next-generation BMW M4 receives the new S58 engine
  • The same engine found in the all-new BMW X3 M and X4 M
  • Will develop more than 500 hp

Bit by bit, BMW reveals details about the upcoming, next-generation BMW M4. A couple of months ago, the carmaker said the BMW M3 and M4 will be offered with an optional manual transmission.

During an interview with CarAdvice in October, Markus Flasch, CEO of BMW’s M Division said: “A manual isn’t faster on the racetrack. There are some advantages, such as weight, but in the overall package not really. (But) it’s something that adds character. And it’s something our customers love.

According to Flasch, “the transformation of M” business plan goes through BMW M’s “pure” models, such as the M2, M3 and M4, to get the manual transmission option.

That being said, the latest press release from the Munich-based company reveals that the all-new BM4 M4 will develop more than 500 hp.

“The production model BMW M4, which forms the base for the BMW M4 GT3, is powered by a six-cylinder engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo Technology that achieves more than 500 hp.”

Markus Flasch said: “It is only logical that future top models in customer racing will be based on the next generation of the BMW M4. We will already be setting new standards in terms of sporting performance in production, which is why it makes sense to present the new GT3 sports car on this platform as well.

The next-generation BMW M4 will be powered by the all-new S58 six-cylinder engine. This new twin-turbo, 3.0-litre inline-six developing 473 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque can be found in the BMW X3 M and X4 M. The Competition version of these models gets 30 more hp for a total of 503.
