BMW 4 Series Concept Coupe Unveiled at Detroit Auto Show

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Sitting right in plain view at the Detroit Auto Show is BMW‘s latest concept, which will foreshadow what the upcoming 4-series coupe will look like.

Following in the footsteps of the BMW 6-series coupe, the 4-series concept coupe is a sleek, sexy and unbelievably gorgeous vehicle. In fact, the grilles on the fenders are actually sourced from the bigger 6 Series.

In terms of size, the 4 Series is a bit bigger than its 3-series sedan counterpart. An extra 1.9 inches is added to the wheelbase of the 3-series, and the length of the 4-series coupe is 1.7 inches longer than the sedan.

There are many hints that the 6-series had an influence on the inside of this concept. Satin-finish aluminum trim highlight the interior bits by the air intakes and vents, door handles and exterior mirrors.

For the production vehicle, expect the same power-plants that are available in the current 3-Series, just like past 3-series coupe. If the sedan is anything to go by, the production 4-series will be quite a solid handling car, setting a benchmark for a dynamic handling luxurious coupe.
