The next M4 Coupe is currently in development and with production expected to start towards the end of 2020, we may very well see the production version in coming months. The M4 Coupe will take aim at rivals such as Audi’s RS5 Coupe and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.
BMW’s grille design has been a major talking point lately and this particular M4 Coupe prototype is quite heavily camouflaged, which does a fair job at hiding the size and shape of the grille. Based on previous leaks, you can expect a monster grille to dominate the front-end of the M4 Coupe.
The headlights appear to be production-spec and the sculpted bonnet will give the M4 Coupe a menacing appearance as do the large black alloy rims with sizey brake discs to boot. The taillights look like production units too but their design are well hidden. Note the large quad tailpipes…
As for the engine, the M4 Coupe will utilise the same 3.0-itre twin-turbocharged, 6-cylinder engine that powers the X3 M and X4 M with outputs of at least 375 kW and 600 Nm expected. BMW is also expected to offer both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive variants of the M4, with the former being mated with both a manual and automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive system will M4 will be paired with an automatic transmission.
