    • 2014 BMW F82 production officially starts today - US deliveries later this year starting at $64,200.00 MSRP

      Production is officially underway! BMW announced that the first 2014 F82 M4 rolled off the line today. The first car is Austin Yellow and was presented by BMW DTM driver Martin Tomczyk. The 2014 F82 M4 of course has the 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque S55B30 engine that revs to 7600 rpm. Paired with a relatively lightweight ~3300 pound chassis and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission the car is expected to move fairly well.

      US deliveries will come after the Europeans get theirs first. The F82 M4 will set you back $64,200 which of course will go up from there depending on options. Colors available are Alpine White, Austin Yellow, Yas Marina Blue, Sakhir Orange, Mineral Gray, Mineral White, Silverstone II, and Sapphire Black. The turbocharged M3/M4 era is officially underway.

        Dzenno,

        I can't wait to see what PTF will be able to do with the M3/M4! Do we know anything about the DME yet?

        Nothing at the moment but I bet piggyback tuning will be out first as usual followed by flash some time after.

        Where did you hear this?

        I knew they were playing games. Especially since they said it was 3,300 lbs and also at the same time said it was 80 kg less than E93 M3. It can't be both.

        I have no idea why, but I am REALLY liking this model's yellow. I liked the Phoenix Yellow - but that was a bit much "look at me"; not saying this one isn't - but it's a more sophisticated/special yellow. I like it.

        This yellow is not grabbing me, but I'll wait to see it in person. Displays don't show the whole color gamut, nor reflection etc. TBD...

        I saw Austin Yellow in person, it is very similar to Phoenix Yellow. I have not seen a Phoenix Yellow E46 in a while. Probably one of things where you need to see them side by side, to tell the difference. It is just so hard to grab true colors with a camera.

        I agree, it is hard to tell for sure, no doubt. I saw an E46 M3 in Phoenix Yellow down in TN once (in the mountains), and haven't seen one since, they are definitely rare birds.

        I guess my problem will be finding one at a dealer in Yellow to see in person... Guessing not too many dealers will order them, right?
