Spyshots: 2014 BMW M3 (F80) Winter Test, Gets Ceramic Brakes
The next round of winter testing has already begun for the super-powered variant of the sports sedan that made its debut a year ago. However, this prototype is no ordinary one, as it’s wearing a set of golden calipers, indication a set of BMW M Carbon Ceramic Brakes. These are ideal for track use because they last much longer and aren’t prone to fading.
The F80 generation of M3 is targeting the weight of the much older E46 M3. The power coming from its new six-cylinder turbo engine will be about the same as the current model’s, but torque will be much improved, as will fuel efficiency, speed and acceleration.
