According to Carscoops, these are the BMW M4 patent images filled with the European patent office this month.
Interesting enough the patent filings showcase the M4 with the same exact design elements as the concept car shown in Pebble Beach. Even though we believe that the “standard” M4 won’t come wit the front carbon fiber splitter and the rear carbon fiber diffuser, the M4 shown in the patent images retains the carbon fiber cues.
Built atop the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the M4 Concept sports an aggressive front end which stands out with large Air Inlets and Air Curtains.
A further striking feature on the front of the new BMW Concept M4 Coupe is the BMW M double bar kidney grille: The black kidney grille bars imitate the characteristic M double spoke design of the BMW M wheels, the M4 emblem on the kidney grille adding an exclusive accent to the front end.
Typical BMW proportions are present on the M4, long bonnet, long wheelbase, set-back greenhouse and a short front overhang. The coupe-like roofline flows into the muscularly designed rear end where a rear spoiler lip is integrated into the trunk lid for optimum downforce.
The new BMW M3 and BMW M4 will be fully unveiled later this month.
