New renderings of the 2014 BMW M4 surface on Facebook. Created by Iacoski.com, the new computer generated images reveal a stunning M4 coupe with the typical sporty lines of a coupe and aggressive stance. The dominating M4 stands out with a sporty fascia enhanced by the bumper with air curtains and the blacked out grill.

On the side, the character line flows from the rear to the front, surrounded by concave and convex shapes that give the car a dynamic look. The enhanced fenders come to complete the dominating and imposing look. At the rear, the M4 renderings resemble the recently unveiled M5, with the diffuser integrated into the rear bumper and including the signature dual twin-exhaust pipes. A subtle, yet much needed trunk lid give the car an aggressive look from the rear as well.

The overall look is further improved by the large, blacked out wheels.

BMW will offer the new M3/M4 in three body variants: sedan, coupe and convertible. The M3 sedan will carry the internal code F80, while the M4 coupe takes on the F82 label. A major change in the upcoming M3 and M4 models come from the power under the hood. The highly-acclaimed V8 naturally-aspirated engine is being retired and replaced by a more efficient, yet powerful, six-cylinder unit.

Our sources say that for the past year BMW has been testing different powerplants in M3 prototypes, from inline-six turbo engines, to a newly designed and unique V6. Opinions continue to remain split, even among our team, on whether BMW will commit a “blasphemy” by offering the M3 and M4 with a V6 unit. In a future article we will outline the pros and cons of an inline-six and V6 engine.

    The new 3 series has such a huge ass, they don’t even need to make a 3 GT, this is it. :(

    “…we will outline the pros and cons of an inline-six and V6 engine”. There are no pros of a V6 engine especially 90 degree except smaller size. It is not that simple to just cut 2 cylinders by an existing V8 and there it is the V6. There is a balance shaft in between the V angle of the 90 degree V6, so putting the turbo there would be a difficult task, not to say impossible. The 90 degree V8 has a second order balance so it doesn’t need a balance shaft between the V angle.

    M4 it just sounds wrong…

    Nice renderings. I still don’t believe this 4 Series nonsense. Also, the M4 is an assault rifle, not a BMW.

  6. Alex says:

    Why even bother with a M4 moniker? That will only create confusion. I think its a dubm idea and I seriously don’t get what they trying to achieve by doing it. Car looks awesome though.
