A new rendering of the BMW M4 Gran Coupe emerges on the interwebs. The latest renders gives us a hypothetical view of the M4 four-door coupe which BMW says won’t come to market, despite initial reports confirming the car.
If it comes to market, the M4 Gran Coupe would be built atop the F36 4 Series Gran Coupe chassis with M design cues from the M4 Coupe. Expect the M4 Gran Coupe to look like a smaller version of the M6 Gran Coupe, with similar, if not better driving dynamics.
The design illustrated by the artist shows an aggressive front fascia with large air intakes and air curtains, extended wheel arches and a beautiful swooping roof line.
If the car is approved for production the powerplant will be reused from the M3/M4 models. The new S55 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbocharged delivers 431 HP and 406 lb-ft of torque. The torque developed by the S55 is fully available from 1,850 to 5,500 RPM which leads one to believe that the turbos selected for use on the S55 are slightly larger than the ones employed on the N54 motor of yore.
Just like the M6 Gran Coupe, a potential M4 Gran Coupe would follow the M4 Coupe two years later.[Source: Designrm]
