The BMW M4 Competition is arguably the most controversially designed M car ever. The enlarged BMW kidney grille is a constant talking point amongst both BMW fans and haters alike. But what happens if we set that aside and give the rest of the M4 some sizzling up?
That’s exactly what exotic wheel manufacturer Forgestar has done. This lime green BMW M4 Competition is a fine example of less is more. With just a change of footwear, this M4 Competition’s looks is transformed.
Rolling on a set of satin black Forgestar F14 wheels measuring 19 x 10 inches at the front and 20 x 11 inches in the rear, the M4 looks more racy than ever. The concave rims complement the coupe’s wheel arches perfectly, while the staggered fitment further add to its aggressiveness. With a lowering of the suspension, this M4 Competition’s hunkered down stance is simply unrivalled.
Inside, a roll cage has been added and the rear seats removed, further hinting that this is no ordinary M4.
The BMW M4 is powered by a formidable six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo in two states of tune depending on the transmission offering.
In a move that will please pure driving enthusiasts, the M4 continues to be offered with a six-speed manual transmission, which is unique in the segment. The manual M4 delivers a peak torque of 550Nm all the way from 2,650 to 6,130rpm. Its maximum output of 353kW is available at 6,250rpm. The rear-wheel drive coupe can dash from 0 to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds.
The M4 Competition lifts power and torque levels to 375kW at 7200rpm and 650Nm from 2,750 to 5,500rpm. Featuring an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission, the standard sprint time for the rear-wheel drive Competition model is just 3.9 seconds.
The M4 Competition will be joined by all-wheel drive variants in late 2021, marking the first time the BMW xDrive system is used in the M4.
