The 2014 BMW M3 and M4: They have turbos! And two or four doors! And six cylinders all in a row! But are they fast? Baby, you know they are. BMW says their new M-cars will do zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. But there's a catch.
All of the technical aspects of the 2014 BMW M3 and M4 started trickling out today and the focus has been on the return of the six-cylinder to the M3 and the fact it will still have a six-speed manual, now joined by a dual-clutch transmission. But one noteworthy feature has a fantastic name: "Smokey Burnout Control."…
Spoiler alert: The 2014 BMW M3 and M4 are faster than the beloved E30 M3. But there's so much more to it than that!
It looks like the Internet beat Gran Turismo 6 to the punch. Meet the next generation of BMW's M cars: the 2014 M3 and M4. There's two of them now!
It seems like CAR Magazine has managed to get some crisp images of the brand new 2014 BMW M3 before its "concept" version premiers at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

We still aren't sure whether it will have a downsized bi/tri turbo V6 when the next generation of the high performance 3-series officially debuts, but as this video indicates—equipped with a V8 or not—the F80 M3 will still be quite fast.
