Earlier today the new BMW M4 Coupe in concept form made its web debut. As with any new BMW, we set course to compare the current generation BMW M3 Coupe against next year’s BMW M4 Coupe.

To make the comparison even more interesting we went with two similar and polarizing colors: the new Aurum Dust and the old school Phoenix Yellow.

The design of the new M4 is what we expected from the Munich designers. Using an already attractive base car, the BMW 4 Series Coupe, Adrian Van Hooydonk and his team give the first M4 a look that will not be easily forgotten. The front end stands out with large air inlets, with the nose facing down ready to conquer the road.

The BMW M4 Coupe Concept also features CFRP design elements like a front splitter, rear diffuser and a roof with ///M stripes. A further striking feature on the front of the new BMW Concept M4 Coupe is the BMW M double bar kidney grille. Muscular wheel arches give the car an aggressive look even when viewed from the side.

At the rear, the typical twin tailpipes are present, along with a rear apron. A carbon fiber rear diffuser completes the overall aerodynamics package.

The design of the E92 M3 Coupe continues to look fresh even seven years after its introduction. The proportions and sportiness are still very much alive, and the current M3 will age well.

Take a look at the photo comparison below and tell us which design you prefer the most.

    I think the rear end is what I really like. It looks menacingly aggressive and frightening. Other shots looks great but can’t really which one looks great. I think the front end has a better looking compared to the E92.

    to me the new car has a better looking rear end , as for the front and the sides (the new one looks oddly lifted) I give it to E92 , as for the real life compare I’ll still have to wait , still I think the real improvement is underneath , however the outside appearance was never bmw’s strongest point , this one should not be exception but still have to see in person

    those black wheels on the e92 don’t help it at all. butt ugly.

  4. Mateo says:

    I think concept looks too much like aftermarket car. too aggressive.

  5. chris says:

    The rear of the car looks a lot better, but the new rims are ugly and the horizontal line across the hood is distracting (hood doesn’t end at the grills like the e92).

    The M4 is impressive, but I’d still take the E92 as it is my favourite M3, and also DAT V8 BRO!

    M4’s CSL-style ducktail rear spoiler is cleannn
