These are the first images of BMW’s Concept version of its counterpart to the F30 3 Series, the F32 4 Series Coupe.
At 4,638 millimetres, it is 50 mm longer than the E92 3 Series Coupe and 44 mm wider at 1,826 mm. It possesses a 45 mm wider front track (1,545 mm) and 80 mm wider rear track (1,593 mm) and stands 16 mm lower at 1,362 mm. Visually, the Liquid Metal Silver F32 is well proportioned with a long hood, muscular wheel arches housing 20-inch wheels, sloping roofline and minimal overhangs. Notable styling features include a bold, aggressively-styled kidney grille and fascia with large intakes, which are been finished in satin silver along with the mirrors and rear bumper trim. The slimmer, twin LED hexagonal headlights accentuate the Coupe’s broader look, while the flanking vents aid brake and oil cooling while improving airflow over the arches. At the rear, the wide taillights fight for attention with the twin tailpipes and their surroundings which replicate the c-shaped detailing at the front.
Moving inside, the BMW Individual-trimmed cabin features sustainably tanned Black and Schiaparelli Brown leather, Natural Chestnut wood elements and leather cup holders. Yes, it’s a concept.
Due to make its official début at next month’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the sleek 4 Series is sure to share the same range of powerplants as the 3 Series, meaning a 87 kW (116 hp) 416d and 107 kW (143 hp) 418d right up to the 3-litre 228 kW (306 hp) 435i could be on the cards. We’re still not sure about an M3 disappearing from BMW’s range, but after seeing these photos we’re not worrying too much..
