More spyshots from the Nurburgring, this time of the upcoming BMW M4. The folks at Munich are very busy with coupes these days, with the 2-Series and 4-Series coupes slated for launch in the near future. By the way, the 2-Series is the coupe version of the 1-Series, and the 4 is the two-door 3-Series.

You’ve already seen the regular BMW 4-Series and the M Sport kitted version on this website, now here’s a peek at the range topping BMW M4. Note that the test mule is not in black, which possibly means that BMW have gone to the next level of testing – more like pre-production cars then prototypes. This can only mean that we’re closer to launch.


Other notable hints include an aggressive front bumper with inverted V-shaped air intakes, quad exhausts, wider wheel arches, a small hump on the hood visible in the profile shot and big brakes. Speaking of brakes, this mule is testing out the M Carbon Ceramic Brakes with gold calipers.

It is expected that the rorty, rev-happy NA V8 of the current car will make way for a turbocharged inline-six. As a big fan of the outgoing E92 BMW M3, I’m a little worried that the new M4 won’t have character to match its undoubted speed. Prove me wrong, please!

The BMW 4-Series is a sleek and handsome coupe, and you can see it in the metal, without an inch of disguise here.
