Will BMW eventually create an M4 Gran Coupe? Well it is hard to say at this stage with the German company yet to confirm or deny recent suggestions. Nevertheless, new renderings have emerged depicting such a car and we must say it is quite an interesting prospect.
If it were to be built, the BMW M4 Gran Coupe would feature the same level of aggressiveness of the M4 Coupe provided by new bumpers front and rear, as well as a redesigned kidney grille, air intakes, side skirts, sports wheels, exhaust and rear diffuser.
Interestingly, the 4-Series Gran Coupé has exactly the same dimensions as the two-door coupé: a length of 4,638 millimeters, a width of 1,825 millimeters and a wheelbase of 2,810 millimeters. Up front, both models are identical and share the typical BMW design features such as the double-kidney grille, dual round headlights and the large air intake in the front apron.
The car will be launched with a mix of five petrol and diesel engines, the usual mix of fast yet frugal power plants that we are sure will suit the balance and purposeful looks of the cars exterior. The most exciting engine in the launch line-up will be the 435i, a six-cylinder in-line 3.0-liter petrol engine delivering 225 kW/306 hp. All engines feature BMW’s latest TwinPower Turbo technology.
However, if an M4 version is actually created, it would feature the same powerplant as both the 2014 BMW M3 Sedan and 2014 BMW M4 Coupe. That is a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine revving to 7,600 rpm and producing an impressive 431 hp between 5,390 rpm and 7,000 rpm and 406 lb-ft of torque from a low 1,800 rpm to 5,390 rpm.
