The BMW Concept M4 was displayed at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show. The Aurum Dust painted M4 was one of the main attractions during press days and the video below gives us a closer look at the exterior design.
Built atop the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the M4 Concept sports an aggressive front end which stands out with large Air Inlets and Air Curtains.
A further striking feature on the front of the new BMW Concept M4 Coupe is the BMW M double bar kidney grille: The black kidney grille bars imitate the characteristic M double spoke design of the BMW M wheels, the M4 emblem on the kidney grille adding an exclusive accent to the front end.
The front apron sports a carbon fiber front splitter. Some of those design elements were exclusively added to the concept car to show some of the aftermarket parts that will become available.
The new engine in the M3 and M4 (S55 3.0 liter turbo) sees a slight power upgrade over the previous V8 to approximately 430 hp, while peak torque has been increased by well over 30 per cent to substantially more than 500 Newton meters, and is maintained over a very wide rev band. The new powerplant also boasts excellent fuel consumption, with an improvement of more than 25 per cent over the previous model’s figures, while emissions are already EU6-compliant.
In January, the new BMW M3 and M4 will make their official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
