Earlier this week, our friend Andrei Arvavarii put together a new render of the 2020 BMW M4 Coupe. The car featured the expected large kidney grille, with a mesh design, and the flashy Austin Yellow color. Now, he’s back with an update of his previous work.

This time around, the render of the 2020 BMW M4 Coupe brings a tucked in overhang and drops the front license plate. The car does retain the meshed grille as well as its height. But this time around, instead of the Austin Yellow, the BMW M4 Coupe was painted in the Forbidden Red as introduced by the BMW Concept 4.
Since we mentioned the license plate, here is an update on that “issue.” According to the BMW Head of Design Domagoj Dukec, the company and its designers have looked at different placements for the front plate. So the design team played around with positioning the plate to the left or right, lower and higher, before they settled on the position seen on the BMW Concept 4.
In the end, when it comes to front license plates, there are so many variations in the world, with some places not even requiring them.
Furthermore, the BMW M4 rendered here showcases some black inserts in the air intakes, as well as a front spoiler lip for additional downforce. The laser headlights give the car a more premium look, while the functional hood with the power dome points to a strong unit.
When it comes to the engine, the new 2020 BMW M4 will be powered by the S58 powerplant – recently introduced by the ALPINA in their B3 – with different outputs. The 3.0 liter six-cylinder TwinTurbo unit can push more than 500 horsepower which can be paired with an all-wheel drive system.
An entry-level 480 horsepower will be matched with the famous rear-wheel drive from BMW. The M bosses refer internally to this model as the “Pure Edition” which is still a working name.
Since you might ask, yes, the manual transmission will continue to live on in the 2020 BMW M4 – and M3 – but only in combination with the RWD.
No official date for the unveil yet, but our bets go on the Geneva Motor Show in March 2020.
