The M4 offers sportier coupe styling, compared to the M3, but the engine and performance figures are identical. It does cost a little more for the M4, but it's a small price to pay for those devastatingly good looks, and you can take things even further if you want with the stunning M4 Convertible.
If the M3 is a true performance sedan legend, its bigger brother the M5 isn't far behind. The current model features the 4.4-liter M TwinPower turbo V-8 that puts 560 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque under your foot, which is good for a 0 to 60 time of just 4.2 seconds with the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (DCT).
As the M3 has the M4, the M5 now has the M6 as its coupe alternative, although the M6 is also available as both a two-door coupe and the four-door M6 Gran Coupe with the same powerplant as the M5. And if that wasn't enough M6 choice for you, there's also the absolutely gorgeous M6 Convertible to consider.
And if you want the additional practicality of a crossover but you still want M Power, we now also have the X5 M and X6 M models. Both utilize the 4.4-liter M TwinPower turbo V-8, but this time it produces 567 horsepower and 553 lb.-ft. of torque through an eight-speed M Sport automatic transmission. Zero to sixty comes up in a seriously rapid four seconds, and the top speed is 156 mph.
There's never been as much choice in the M Series as there is right now, and it's probably fair to say the M Series has never been better and more alluring than it is today.
