The first F32 4 Series / 3 Series coupe prototypes were spotted for the first time ever just last month. And although it appeared in heavy camouflage, we’ve attempted to envision what the production form may look like underneath.
In producing the following images, we started from a real life F32 spy photo (attached below) and combined it with some elements from the F30’s styling, along with some educated guesses and imagination sprinkled throughout. We’ll be able to better assess the accuracy of the image’s detailed styling elements as the F32 prototypes lose some camouflage, but for now, the general shape, proportions, and stance seen in these renders are accurate.

This F30 is a Luxury Line model which features: front and rear bumpers with speciﬁc features in high-gloss chrome, BMW kidney grille with 11 slats in high-gloss chrome, side window frames and window recess ﬁnishers in high-gloss chrome, B-pillar and window uprights in Black, high-gloss “Luxury” lettering along the side, and tailpipe trim in high-gloss chrome.
Studie is perhaps the most well known Japanese tuner of BMWs with their generally reserved, but still attactive modified cars. They’ve now undertaken their project 1M coupe and the first aspects they’ve tackled is the handling and reducing unsprung weight.
They’ve fitted the 1M with KW Clubsport suspension and replaced the factory wheels with 19″ BBS RI-D wheels, which weigh just 15.9 F / 16.5 R pounds, a saving of 40.8 pounds of unsprung weight over the stock wheels!
Judging by Studie’s tendencies, we should also soon see some cosmetic aero parts fitted to their 1M.
