This is the all-new BMW M4 Coupe concept
BMW's new naming strategy meant the demise of the legendary M3 Coupe, but the sacrifice proved to be in name only. The company recently introduced the latest evolution of the M moniker: the M4 Coupe. Yes, the seemingly endless months of speculation and spy shots have concluded with this 'Aurum Dust' coloured M4 Concept. But, as usual with BMW concepts of yesteryear, the M4 Concept should give excellent insight as to what the production model will look like.
The outgoing E92 M3 isn't an uninspiring car to look at by any means, but from the wider stance, the chiseled front end and the large 20-inch wheels with carbon-ceramic brakes peeking through at all four corners, the M4 seems infinitely more aggressive. Powertrains have yet to be announced, but it is suggested BMW will adapt an inline-six cylinder engine with some sort of forced-induction, as opposed to the outgoing normally aspirated V8.
The M4 Concept will be shown at the Concours D'Elegance in Pebble Beach, while the production model will likely be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show. Be sure to head over to BMW enthusiast forum Bimmerpost.com for more photos, and while there, check out the impressively close speculative renderings for comparison's sake.
