Here is the first video of the BMW 4 Series Coupe. The Munich-based automaker revealed today the first model in the new 4 Series family. The BMW 4 Series Coupe Concept will debut in January 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show and sales are scheduled to begin in summer 2013.

BMW has decided to take a page from Audi and bump its coupe offering up a number. Instead of the heretofore 3 Series Coupe, we’re seeing that the 4 Series Coupe Concept is the direction the company will take going forward. In line with the coupe version of the 5 being a 6, this shows how BMW intends to bump up the cachet (and price) for two-door variants.

The new 4 is also on a slightly lower, wider and longer chassis than the existing 3 series coupe. It has the usual BMW exterior cues, with a dash of hi tech in the LED headlamps.

More on the design in a following article, but for now, enjoy the video.
