We present to you the BMW M4 Coupe Concept!
On 15 August, surrounded by both current and historic BMW models, BMW M tonight offered a first outlook on a high-performance sports car of tomorrow – the BMW Concept M4 Coupe. The car was unveiled at the BMW opening media reception for the iconic annual Pebble Beach/Monterey automobile weekend.

Through renders and past spy photos, we’ve had previews of the M4 bumper styling and these latest spy photos show that our renders were spot on.
As for the now revealed mirrors, they are indeed two-pronged like the E90/E92 M3, but featuring an evolved design where the top prong ‘floats’ (doesn’t quite reach the A pillar).
Stay tuned for more info very soon… for now follow our M4 coverage.
The F80 M3 and F82 M4 will make their debuts within the next few months and BMW has built up the anticipation even more by way of this official teaser. We only see portions of the car’s mirror and hood (dome), but this is undoubtedly the upcoming F80 M3 or F82 M4 being teased.
The M4 Concept will debut very soon and the production M4 and M3 will hit showrooms in late Spring – early Summer of next year.

Development of the F15 X5 M continues…
