BMW 4 Series Coupe Revealed as a Concept [VIDEO]

BMW has revealed the Concept 4 Series Coupe ahead of its public debut next month at the Detroit Auto Show. The 4 Series is basically a new name and new look for the BMW 3 Series Coupe. A Convertible, and M4 in both hard top and open top variants will follow as well.

The Concept 4 Series Coupe is much more than a concept car. The production model will have just minor details changed, just like BMW did with the 6 Series Gran Coupe, when they first released a concept and then soon after a production model, which was almost identical.

The 4 Series has a wheelbase of 2,810mm (+50mm compared to the current 3 Series coupe), front track measures 1,545mm (+45mm) and the the rear track measures 1,593mm (+80mm). Its width is 1,826mm (+44mm), Height is 1,362mm(16mm lower) and the length is now 4,641mm.

The concept is clearly bigger and does look more dynamic than the model it replaces. It rides on exclusive 20-inch light alloy wheels with a three-dimensional multi-spoke design.

Engine range is expected to include only the top units found in the saloon. There will be also an all-wheel drive version. Top of the range M4 will use a turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder with around 450bhp.

The production model is very likely going to make its debut already at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
