Earlier this week, BMW introduced a new M4 concept to showcase the latest development in light technology. The BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights features new interpretation of the twin round headlights featuring the laser lights technology.
In the rear, the M4 Concept Iconic Lights sports new OLED headlights which produce light from wafer-thin semiconducting layers of organic material.
On the BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights model, BMW Organic Light is used in the tail lights and rear direction indicators. By activating the OLED segments individually, it is possible to create different rear lighting effects in different driving modes.
Whereas normally the L-shape is wide and uniformly illuminated, in Sport mode a different-shaped light pattern can be used by activating only some of the OLED segments. The rear light then appears as a narrow, focused and sharply defined “strip” of light.
Its M-style OLED rear light cluster marks a new evolution of the typical BMW L-shaped lighting design which, with the BMW 7 Series launch, was reinforced with a distinctive “glowing” effect.
Here is a short video showing the new lights in action:
