The BMW M4 Coupe is lighter and faster than its predecessor, so it comes as little surprise that the model recently beat the Nürburgring lap time of the M3 Coupe.

During a test by Sport Auto, the car was able to lap the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 52 seconds. This is a 13 seconds faster than its predecessor.

As we have previously reported, the M4 Coupe has a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 431 PS (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 4.1 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) or 280 km/h (174 mph) when equipped with the M Driver's Package.
