BMW Abu Dhabi, known for some daring bimmer models, is releasing into the wild their latest creation: a Melbourne Red-painted BMW 435i Coupe with M Performance Parts.
The sleek 4er Coupe comes equipped with a wide range of carbon fiber parts from the M Performance Catalog, starting with the high-seller Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler and the front lip which not only helps with downforce, but also enhances the car’s looks.
Black kidney grilles, carbon fiber mirror caps and the dark accents of the M Performance side skirts give the car an exotic look.
Since the 435i Coupe needs to live up to its looks, an Akrapovic exhaust system is replacing the standard one to provide enhanced acoustics.

Though the new 4 Series wheelbase is 50 mm longer than the outgoing E92 3 Series Coupe, the BMW 4 Series has the same 110.6” wheelbase as the existing F30 3 Series sedan. Its overall length, 182.7 inches, is just a hair longer the the F30 sedan by 0.2”. The new 4 Series overall height is 53.6 inches. This is lower than the existing 3 Series sedan by 2.7” and the outgoing 3 Series coupe by .63”, giving the car a more dynamics and sporty stance and ride.
BMW 435i with rear-wheel drive starts at $46,000 while the M Sport is an additional $3,100.
Under the hood, the BMW 435i Coupe sports a 3.0 liter inline-six TwinScroll turbocharged unit producing 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission (an optional six-speed manual is offered).
