In June, BMW announced that the new 4-Series coupe was hitting the assembly line. While boasting the profile of a proper two-door coupe, the new model sort of underwhelmed when viewed from the front. Based on the 3-Series sedan, the 4-Series sports a face that looks all too familiar.
And then this...
The car you see here is a 4-Series wearing M Performance Parts. Among the special M components available for the 4-Series are: a silencer system with tailpipe embellishers in chrome or carbon; limited-slip differential; brake system with red, yellow or orange calipers; 20-inch light-alloy wheels; black radiator grid for the double-kidney grille; diffuser insert for the rear apron; side sill foils with M Performance inscription; side stripes; carbon front splitters; mirror caps; rear spoiler; sports steering wheel with red central marking; gear lever and handbrake handle in carbon; interior strips in carbon and Alcantara; high-grade steel pedals with a specially designed driver footrest; and floor mats.
What about the engine?
Depending on the variant and its standard powerplant, a 4-Series with the M Performance package receives 16hp to 34hp more output, as well as an additional 40Nm to 50Nm in torque.
Suddenly, this car doesn't look underwhelming anymore, does it?
