Arrow BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe

BMW presents the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe.



Munich. The latest generation of the BMW 3 Series Coupe and Convertible leads the way worldwide in the premium mid-range coupe and convertible market. Indeed few, if any, rivals have made such a defining impact on this segment in terms of design, dynamics and efficiency.

Now, with the unveiling of the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe, BMW is looking ahead to the fourth generation of its sporty mid-range coupe – and reasserting its global leadership credentials in the process.

The “4” – a sign of greater exclusivity and presence.

The BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe adds a new dimension to the qualities of the BMW 3 Series Coupe in terms of aesthetics, dynamics and elegance.
The “4” doesn’t just mark the start of a new cycle, it represents the zenith of a development curve. BMW has given the new model its own individual character and a standalone design – and, in so doing, has turned “4” into segment shorthand for aesthetic and dynamic appeal. The latest addition to a nomenclature that sees BMW building on the fine tradition of its large BMW 6 Series and BMW 8 Series Coupes, the “4” stands for greater sportiness, greater exclusivity and even clearer differentiation from the BMW 3 Series range.

The design: a development curve reaches its zenith.

The BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe allows the driver to experience the essence of this new, sporting and elegant generation of car in the lap of contemporary luxury. An array of high-quality details provide an exclusive showcase for the car’s perfectly balanced coupe proportions. Inside, the expertise of BMW Individual, skilled handcraftsmanship and carefully selected materials combine to create a supreme interior. The role of BMW Individual in the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe’s development clearly underlines the brand’s commitment to challenging itself constantly in pursuit of perfection.

Lower and wider stance sharpens dynamics before a wheel is turned.

The dimensions of the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe imbue the car with a dynamic presence even when it is standing still. The wheelbase (2,810 mm) is 50 millimetres longer than that of the existing 3 Series Coupe, while 45 mm has been added to the front track (1,545 mm) and 80 mm to the rear track (1,593 mm). At 1,826 mm wide, the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe is 44 mm broader than its predecessor, its roof line is 16 mm lower (1,362 mm) and it is also longer (4,641 mm) – all of which makes for exceptionally dynamic proportions.

Perfection in proportions.

A BMW Coupe is surrounded by a halo of fascination, and one glance tells the observer all he needs to know about the driving experience on offer. The elegant lines and athletic surface interplay of the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe embody the qualities and expertise of BMW design and shine out through its sporting silhouette. The car’s proportions also fit the familiar BMW template: its long wheelbase, long sweeping bonnet, set-back passenger compartment and short overhangs propel the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe forwards even before its engine stirs into life. At the same time, its stretched proportions exude a very athletic elegance – the rear wheel arches mark the widest point of the car, emphasising the point – and taut lines and surfaces etch emotion and precision into the body. The Coupe’s sophisticated detailing also captures the imagination on closer inspection. Functional elements such as air intakes and vents, door openers and exterior mirrors are given a stylistic lift by classy satin-finish aluminium accents. The exceptional dedication of the designers in achieving the right look for each particular function is evident in every one of these details.

Looks fantastic! However, not a fan of the BMW Individual interior with the basketweave details. This car is going to be epic. As soon as the first one rolls off the production line it will be BMW's best looking car.

Mods/LeMans, please delete the thread I started about the 4 series as yours puts mine to shame.

Dare to spill your cup of coffee in that basketweave cupholder - you will need to put a warranty claim in order to get it cleaned up!!!! Otherwise you will not be able to afford the bill... lol..

exterior looks amazing... interior - leaves me with mixed feelings...

And the return to a long forgotten principle of odd numbered series to be 4-door cars (3-series coupes proved it wrong) and the even numbered cars to be 2-door (X6 and 6-series GranCoupe proved that wrong too)...

would it not be nice to have
1-series - 4-doors
2-series - 2-doors
3-series - 4-doors
4-series - 2-doors
5-series - 4-doors
6-series - 2-doors
7-sereis - 4-doors
8-series - 2 doors (I hope 8-series is back too)

than we have the X-series and the Z-series

And of course, the ///M-versions

so, finally, there might be an order in the house!!!

A little more info. The article talks
about an N55 with a turbo upgrade.
I really like the interior choices and
body changes.

Add GC and GT versions to the list.

There will definitely be something above 7-series and X6. new flagships.

There will be new, N55 replacement engine, to power the 435i. We will see the same engine in the new F15 X5 35i.

Now comes the hard part. Do they take it to
$65,000 ? More? Maybe not...

BMW's Euro prices have historically never ever directly converted to US prices.
Compare prices of M3 coupe in US vs. Europe, and you will know.
The current US base price on 335 coupe is 45100. They will not increase price by $20k on the new 435i and make it more expensive then 535i. Does not add up.
Don't forget there is a uber 4-series GranCoupe also coming. Where will that fit in pricing?

Hit my local sales mgr with a request
for any info or sources on the 4 Coupe.
What I got back was, " Mike, BMW keeps
such wraps on new vehicles that we
don't know much until they inform
us". He referred me to Autospies.
Not really surprising, I guess.
