After being labeled as having quite controversial looks, the new generation of BMW M4 is about to strike back!
According to various leaks, countless spy shots, and a press release issued a few days ago regarding the new M4, render artist Nikita Chuyko got to work to give us a clearer idea of what the latest BMW M4 Coupe might look like.
Of course, it’s essential to keep in mind that the artist might have taken some liberty, and the final design might not look exactly like the rendering. However, according to the artist’s work, the front bumper seems more angular than before, and the mirror caps on either side are more elongated. Also, it has other features like a sleek rear spoiler, model-specific rims, four rounded tailpipes, four fin diffusers, and lowered sports suspension.
The next-gen M4 will be powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engines producing 473 HP while the Competition spec will output 503 HP. The M4’s drivetrain will be a rear-wheel-drive biased all-wheel-drive system with two choices of transmission: a 6-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic. Competition models, on the other hand, will only be available as an automatic and xDrive all-wheel-drive systems.
Although it’s quite similar to earlier versions, it can be distinguished by the massive grille, which is separated in the M4, unlike the 4 Series, which was joined in the center. It will also have the same stretched headlights with the classic U-shaped DRLs found in standard 4 Series. To complete its aggressive looks, it also comes with larger alloy wheels and widened fenders.
Although the first-generation BMW M4 Coupe didn’t exactly meet the customers’ expectations and failed to find its niche, it is expected that the new version should do the trick. According to analysts, it’s even likely to be one of the best cars of the year and should receive more praise than criticism.
However, this is not the first time we hear this kind of talk from car manufacturers while still being deceived when it’s finally released. We’ll have to wait for next month, and see what comes out, I guess
But if the final design looks just half as good as Nikita Chuyko’s rendering, we can assume the new-gen M4 should perform a lot better than the previous model.
