BMW M3 and M4 with 4WD: A BMW M3 / M4 has never been this fast!

The current BMW M5 is the first with four-wheel drive. But that doesn’t mean the playfulness has disappeared. At the end of 2017, the M5 set the world record for the longest drift ever, with a distance of 374 kilometers. The M xDrive system of the M5 is broadly similar to the all-wheel drive of the new BMW M3 and M4. Most of the power goes to the rear axle and there is also a 2WD mode to direct all the horsepower in that direction.

BMW M3 and M4 Competition xDrive a blow faster

Four-wheel drive is optional on the BMW M3 and M4, but only on the 510 hp Competition variant. The standard version with 480 hp always has only rear-wheel drive. The M xDrive system has a major influence on the sprint performance of the BMW M3 and M4 Competition. The sprint to 100 km / h is now over after 3.5 seconds. And with that, the M3 / M4 has become almost half a second faster.

Waiting for the BMW M3 Touring and M4 CSL

You cannot see whether you are dealing with a BMW M3 or M4 Competition xDrive. Compared to the ‘normal’ M3 and M4, the 4WD versions only have a set of larger wheels (19 inch at the front and 20 inch at the rear). BMW is not yet finished with the M3 and M4. There will be a convertible version, an M3 Touring (for the first time in history) and a hardcore CSL variant.
