While we are all familiar with the upcoming M3, we haven’t really gotten too many looks at the F80 in colors aside from Yas Marina Blue and Austin Yellow.
BMWUSA has given us the treat of the car in the sure to be popular Silverstone II. The 2014 New York Autoshow lighting makes it look downright sinister.
While we all wait anxiously for the BMW M3 and M4 to hit the showrooms, BMWUSA has been kind enough to indulge us with some additional colors to look at. The car is absolutly sinister is Black Sapphire Metallic!
Making its U.S. debut a the 2014 New York Auto Show is the 4-Series Gran Coupe. The now familiar Gran Coupe moniker means this is a 4-door sedan but with a sloping coupe like silhouette.
This is the first time BMW has attempted this formula in the small/mid-size luxury sedan format, but it does come across pretty nicely.
Prices in the U.S. will start at a base MSRP of:
$41,225, including $925 Destination & Handling for the 428i Gran Coupe,
$43,225, including Destination & Handling, for the 428i xDrive Gran Coupe, and
$46,725, including $925 Destination & Handling for the 435i Gran Coupe.
The new BMW X4 Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) bows its head for the first time in public at the New York Autoshow. Based on the current X3, the new X4 comes in at $45,625 and will be offered in the familiar 240HP 2.0L 4-cylinder N20, dubbed the xDrive28i and the Turbocharged 3.0L 6-cylinder xDrive35i ($48,925).
The X4 starts production this summer at BMW’s Spartanburg South Carolina plant. Expect to see the X4 dueling it out with the upcoming Porsche Macan!
Welcome the all new 2015 BMW M4 Convertible.
The highlight for BMW at the New York Autoshow has to be the M4 Convertible. The car shares the same drivetrain and dimensions as the M4 Coupe, but ditches its fixed top for a retractable hard top and weighing in at around 3900lbs.
BMW has confirmed that the car will arrive to U.S. showrooms during the summer of 2014 and will be priced nicely at $73,425 (including Destination & Handling).
