Pistonheads gives the E92 BMW M3 a farewell by photoshooting the iconic M3 Coupe against its successor, the first M4 Coupe model.

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.

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.

According to BMW M, the new M4 is 10 sec faster at Nurburgring than the E92 M3 Coupe.

    Hmmm… I think the E92 is actually better execution of very similar design language. Interesting. Usually the M3 look from one gen to the next is less evolutionary.
