Hussein Al-Attar, the BMW designer in charge of the BMW 4 Series Coupe concept’s headlights and taillights chats with Motor Trend about what inspired and challenged him during the design process, which went from idea to reality in just a few months.
“There’s so much work that goes into [headlight/taillight design]. I think people don’t even recognize that there are designers only working on these details,” said Al-Attar, who participated in the 2004 Motor Trend/CIAS International Design Contest. “It’s a very complex object. It’s a very exciting process, what we’re doing.”
The F32 4 Series Coupe M Sport was recently spied and while it remained under heavy camouflage, here are some renders which previews what the 4 Series M Sport may resemble.
For the renders (by site member kv12), the front bumper look is adopted from the F30 3 Series M Sport and although the 4 Series M Sport bumper may vary, the image shows us how aggressive the 4 Series front end will look with an aggressively styled M Sport front.

Testing of the upcoming F32 4 Series coupe continues after the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe Concept and it has now advanced to FEP (Final Evaluation Phase) stage, as usually indicated by the sighting of a prototype in production colors.
After the great first look at the F32 production Sport Line model we posted last month, it almost seems we’re going backwards in terms of how revealing this test mule is. But, we also got very lucky with last months very revealing sighting.
But, we do get better looks at some parts of the production car with our new sighting. The front now bares portions of the M Sport bumper. The headlights here do not feature the newly styled angel eyes which extend to towards the … CONTINUED
Now that we know the general look of the upcoming 4 Series Coupe (from the revealed concept model), we can also take a better guess at what the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) model may look like.
