As you’ve seen, we spent the latter half of last week at the Pebble Beach Automotive Week in Monterey, California, which is an annual week-long banquet of events for automobile enthusiasts and connoisseurs who converge on the Monterey area. While the collection of automotive hardware (everything from some of the most expensive classics to the latest model exotics) spotted around the Monterey peninsula was the largest and most impressive gathering we’ve ever witnessed, the highlight of the trip for us was having the first look at the BMW M4 Coupe Concept, which BMW unveiled at several events throughout the weekend. The following is a brief timeline, our personal reaction to the M4 Concept and some interesting notes on the M3/M4.

BMW will take the concept of driving pleasure to the next level at this year’s IAA International Motor Show: Visitors to the show will be able to experience the endless driving pleasure of the new BMW models on an almost 300-metre-long track over three levels.

We were in attendance today at the NYC world premiere event for the BMW i3 sedan [Official Thread]. The i3 was simultaneously debuted in three cities – NYC, London and Beijing, and the cover was pulled back on the i3 at the same exact moment over live feeds at each location.
The debut event was held in a building bordering the High Line Park in NYC, a 1-mile linear park built on a 1.45-mile section of a former New York elevated subway track.
