The 2021 BMW M4 coupe is arguably one of the most radical redesigns in the company’s storied history. Not only does the two-door version of the also-all-new BMW M3 feature dramatically different bodywork, including a comically large interpretation of the famous kidney grille, but the M4 is also profoundly powerful and looks to erase every performance record held by its predecessor. BMW also sticks to its roots by continuing to offer a manual transmission on the latest generation. While the stick-shift isn’t available on the Competition variant, the auto-only Comp has a more powerful version of the sublime straight-six, making 503 horses versus the core model’s 473. Regardless of power output, the 2022 M4 has the handling and performance to excite drivers and honor the M cars of yore.
