Words and Photos by Matt Petrie:

“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is an expression we’ve all been warned of at some point in our lives, however it may have applied. While most of us were told this at a young age, it still holds true no matter how much time passes. Those of you familiar with the E9X platform know of its naturally aspirated, high revving V8 engine making over 400 horsepower. At first glance you can tell this thing is serious. It’s lowered on RD springs with Volk TE37-SL’s and an Akrapovic exhaust. With the addition of a few little aesthetic BMW Performance pieces it’s evident that this has been modified, but it’s not until you get in the car that you … CONTINUED

We recently posted our first set of BMW M4 Coupe renders based off the 4 Series Coupe Concept, and we now bring you even more interpretations previewing the F82 M4, by resident artist E92Alpine328i.

We started with the 4 Series Coupe Coupe and incorporated what the M3/M4 prototype spy photos and videos have revealed so far, along with some speculation and imagination.

To recap, here is an updated list of what we know about the F80/F82 so far:

Lighter than current M3

BimmerWorld has started a build journal documenting the preparation of their V8 project M3 race car. They have gathered a lot of information and continue to do so.

Via JamesClay, BimmerWorld Team owner:

Red Line Oil has partnered with us on this project because they love the BMW marque almost as much as we do, and because they are also car guys who enjoy building something and running it around a track as more than something to slap a decal on. We have learned a lot from Red Line as we have interacted more frequently, and that too will show up here from time to time, not as a commercial message but hopefully more as a sharing of knowledge that is the reason we put Red … CONTINUED

We’ve put together some renders of what the BMW M4 Coupe (F82) may look like, starting with the 4 Series Coupe Coupe and incorporating what the M3/M4 prototype spy photos and videos have revealed so far, along with some speculation/imagination.

We’ve given the M4 the 1M+M6 style front bumper spied on the F80 M3 prototypes, but the M4 bumper will likely look somewhat different. We’ve also incorporated the M sideskirts, wide fenders and hood bulge spied in the prototype photos. It may also get double slatted grilles with M4 badge and a shaped carbon fiber roof, both like on the M6 Coupe.

We’ve always projected that the successor to the current M3 coupe would be called the M4 coupe, to reflect the fact that the 4 Series coupe was coming. Now, not only has the 4 Series been revealed and confirmed, but Car and Driver claims that BMW has confirmed the switch to the BMW M4 badge for the coupe version of the next M3.

The M4 coupe is designated as the F82 and the M3 sedan as the F80.
