Pricing for the 2021 BMW M3 sedan and M4 Coupé has leaked online only days after the models were unveiled.
While unverified, the leak shows the 2021 BMW M3 with a manual transmission will be priced from $144,900 plus on-road costs, while a manual M4 Coupé will start from $149,900 plus on-road costs – consistent with recent pricing for these BMW performance models.
Buyers opting for the Competition pack with automatic transmission will have to pay an extra $10,000.
The standard (no badge) M3 and M4 have not been on sale locally since 2018, with BMW instead offering the cheaper Pure package and more expensive Competition option in recent years.
Pricing for the new model has increased by approximately $3300 across the range, consistent with other recent price rises from BMW.
The price list has emerged in a Facebook group for BMW owners, and appears to be a screenshot of internal BMW dealership documents.
BMW Australia was unable to confirm whether the pricing was genuine.
