Our coverage of the BMW 435i Coupe continues with some track footage from the recent international media launch in Portugal.

Our first two reviews focused on the road driving experience and the track impressions of the new BMW 435i Coupe, and today we have some in-car footage from Estoril. The Estoril track is regarded as a technical track rather than a fast one, it has two hairpin turns, noticeable elevation changes and thirteen corners.

Under the hood, the BMW 435i Coupe sports a 3.0 liter inline-six TwinScroll turbocharged unit producing 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission (an optional six-speed manual is offered).

The BMW 4 Series has the same 110.6” wheelbase as the existing F30 3 Series sedan. Its overall length, 182.7 inches, is just a hair longer the the F30 sedan by 0.2”. The new 4 Series overall height is 53.6 inches. This is lower than the existing 3 Series sedan by 2.7” and the outgoing 3 Series coupe by .63”, giving the car a more dynamics and sporty stance and ride.
