BMW's M4 Coupe: Love at first sight

BMW's M4 Coupe burns rubber yet dishes out driveability and comfort

Published on Jun 23, 2014 2:50 PM

BMW's new M4 Coupe is fast. So fast, in fact, that it has reached our shores barely a month after an international test-drive programme in Portugal.

Which means the car was already here for Land Transport Authority inspection and approval while the launch took place in Faro.

That's how small the world has shrunk.

Nobody's complaining, though. Whether you are an avid fan of M cars or someone who has never heard of them, you are likely to fall for the M4 at first sight.
