A new rendering of the 2014 BMW M4 Coupe surfaces on the interwebs. Based on the most recent spy photos, rendering artist Gerald Alvarez / JAdesigns75 showcases how the side view of the M4 might turn out when the car hits the market in 2014.
The F82 M4 Coupe is based on the new 4 Series Coupe and it will differentiate itself from the 3 Series family through a sleeker front apron and slightly redesigned headlights. The rendering illustrates the dynamic and sporty allure of the M4, with the usual convex and concave shapes, and the emphasized character line flowing from the rear side skirts across the length of the car and into the fenders.
Even though not shown in this image, the front-end design is said to take its cues from the recently launched M6. The front bumper mimics the one from the M6 with the 1M-like air curtains. The air vents are large in size with angled fins that give the car not only a road-focused look, but also a dominating stance. The M4 Coupe will also get a hood bulge, for both aesthetic and aerodynamic reasons.
The powerplant found under the hood is rumored to be a newly developed 3.2 liter unit, still inline-six, which has its fundamentals in the current M3 engine, the S65 V8. The engine is rated at 450 hp and with a new performance package it could reach 480 horsepower and a top speed of 300 km/h.
The M4 Coupe will debut next year at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.
The rendering is based on an M6 photo taken a few weeks ago by the spy photographer Palbay.
