Here are some amazing renderings of what the BMW M4 Concept could look like. The photoshoped images are based on the BMW 4 Series Coupe introduced in Detroit and were created by the talented rendering artist Jerry Alvarez (JAdesigns75.deviantart.com).

Based on information we learned in the past and a little bit of common sense, we can say that the renderings are not too far from the real deal and if the car turns out like this, it will be a HUGE hit for BMW. Seen here are an aggressive front bumper with styling cues imported from the 1M and M6 models, as well as a carbon fiber rooftop. The side lines have also been enhanced to give the car a more muscular and sporty look. As expected flared fenders and side skirts are present, along with M wheels.
The air vents are large in size with angled fins that give the car not only a road-focused look, but also a dominating stance. The M4 rendering also shows a hood bulge on the hood, typical to M3 models.
The F80 and F82 M3 and M4 drop the V8 naturally-aspirated engine in favor of a new inline-six engine that sources say will develop around 450 horsepower. The new M4 is expected to be slightly faster than the current E92 generation thanks to a lower weight achieved by use of lightweight materials, such as aluminum and carbon fiber.
The engine is mated to a double-clutch transmission 7-speed transmission. The U.S. enthusiasts will most likely see a manual transmission option as well.
Expect the BMW M4 to debut in Spring of 2014.
