A facelifted version of the BMW M4 coupé has been spotted undergoing hot-weather testing in Southern Europe.
The BMW M4 has been on the market since 2014 so it is due for a mid-life refresh. After the fiery BMW M4 GTS has come and gone, what will the performance arm of BMW do next with its hot 3 Series-based coupé? These spy images show that some elements of the BMW M4 GTS will be transferred onto the facelifted car. There's a modified front end with lip as well as a similarly sculpted bonnet. Both of these details look very similar to those found on the GTS. At the rear there are new OLED tail lamps as well as a reworked, larger spoiler. Could we be looking at a new M4 variant with, perhaps, a GTS-themed style pack?
We gather that there will be a slight increase in power too, which will help it keep pace with the new fiery Mercedes-AMG C63 which packs 375 kW. At this stage, the BMW M4 coupe will be expected to arrive globally in the second half of 2017, with South African availability shortly thereafter.
