Pricing for the 2015 BMW M3 and M4 is out, revealing that the cars will start at $62,925 and $65,125 including destination.
That represents a price increase of about $2,000 compared to the previous model, but buyers get a lot more in the new M3 and M4.
Power for both cars comes from a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine with 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The motor will be paired to a six-speed manual transmission with an auto throttle-blipping function in base trim, though both models can also be ordered with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Carbon fiber is used throughout both new cars, with power being transferred to the rear wheels via a lightweight and very rigid driveshaft that’s made out of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. But that’s not the only part of these cars that are made out of this advanced material.

Both models have carbon-fiber roofs, which makes quite a striking design statement, and also saves a fair bit of weight, helping to lower the cars’ center of gravity. These cars’ underhood strut braces are also made of carbon fiber.
