The New G82 BMW M4 Sounds Great; Now Let’s Hope It Will Look Great, Too

Cars, News I By Peter Nelson I July 01, 2020

The world got a substantial peek at the new G82 BMW M4 yesterday, and all signs point to it being a great follow-up to the well-regarded F82/83. Some quick takeaways from the video posted to YouTube:

  • 3.0-liter I-6 turbo, producing 480 – 510 horsepower
  • 6-speed MANUAL gearbox! Whether this is standard or a no-cost option, we’re relieved that it’s a possible to have three pedals and a stick
  • It sounds glorious, and will most likely sound even better in the USA thanks to no Europe-only exhaust particulate filtering
  • Judging by the speeds achieved in KMs on the dash, this thing hauls the mail
  • It’s still under camouflage, but Lord do we hope it looks decent; we’re a little concerned after leaked photos of its front grille were passed around the internet (perhaps they’re a ruse meant to drum up chatter and then when it debuts, humanity will all have a collective sigh of relief?)

Regardless of what it’ll look like, we’re excited. Check it out!
