Here are the first live photos of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe. The 4er in concept form made its debut at the BMW Design Night in Munich and it was introduced by BMW Head of Design, Karim Habib.

BMW has decided to take a page from Audi and bump its coupe offering up a number. Instead of the heretofore 3 Series Coupe, we’re seeing that the 4 Series Coupe Concept is the direction the company will take going forward. In line with the coupe version of the 5 being a 6, this shows how BMW intends to bump up the cachet (and price) for two-door variants. The price increase we believe it will be at least $5,000 more than the 3 Series sedan.

The new 4 is also on a slightly lower, wider and longer chassis than the existing 3 series coupe. It has the usual BMW exterior cues, with a dash of hi tech in the LED headlamps.

BMW will start selling the 4 Series Coupe in the summer of 2013. Here is a video and photo gallery showing us the 4 Series Coupe from upclose.

    I don’t think BMW followed Audi with the naming, there where talk of calling the current coupe the 4 series. For some reason, they never did. If they had, it would have been before the A5.

    ARRRGH. This gorgeous machine is marred by that ugly leading edge on the hood. Why, why, WHY did they change from the E92 where the leading edge of the hood seam is flush with the top of the grilles and headlamp assemblies?

      Agreed. But still the best looking thing they’ve done since the CS, which by the way got the hood cut line correct. Now let’s just hope it drives better than the current 5-series.

    Who cares about the name and who copied who?? Manufacturers copy each other all the time. for example M3 started the performance saloons and everyone else copied. Mercedes started ABS brakes and everyone else copied. Audi started LED’s and everyone else copied. It is the name of the game, it is not about who copies who but about who does it the best. BTW, the photographer is rubbish, anyone can take better photos than these ones.
