The Storied BMW M3 Coupe will soon morph into the latest iteration in the M line, as shown today by the BMW Concept M4 Coupe at Pebble Beach. Flaunting a new “Aurum Dust” paint color–Aurum means “gold” in Latin–the “concept” BMW M4 Coupe looks ready for the showroom floor, and very likely reflects what we’ll see when the production M4 is officially revealed..
“The BMW Concept M4 Coupe reflects the BMW M philosophy in ideal form: It combines motor racing genes and unrestricted everyday suitability in a highly emotional overall concept. For four generations, the BMW M3 has put motor racing on the road and the BMW Concept M4 Coupe consistently continues to pursue this fundamental idea,” said Friedrich Nitschke, chairman of the managing board of the BMW M GmbH.
BMW hasn’t released specs, choosing to focus on design for the time being. Large air inlets in front, and a sporty, low rear-end signal the M4′s dynamic potential. BMW has also used carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) to highlight the focus on weight savings, as soon on the front splitter, roof, and rear diffuser. The classic BMW “face” is evident in the double-kidney design, and LEDs further define the front-end styling. The low and wide rear-end, with its flared wheel-arches, is meant to convey a sense of stability, and twin-tailpipes further align the car with the M design language. We expect to get more details from BMW in regards to performance in the coming months, but does the styling of the BMW Concept M4 Coupe resonate?
