Hot BMW M4 Gran Coupe Rendering
-pic X-Tomi Design
There is now doubt that BMW loves to add extra doors to coupes. We've seen the M6 Gran Coupe and the latest 4 Series Gran Coupe, they couldn't just leave the M4 with only two doors, could they. This rendering from X-Tomi Design, while it pretty much looks like an M3, gives a hint to how the M4 Gran Coupe will look.
Like the 4 series GC and the M6 GC share their design elements with the coupes they are based on, the M4 Gran Coupe will do the same. In the end it won't just be an M3, but an M4 with a higher roofline, shortened front doors to accommodate the two extra rears, and a more flowing rear roof line into the trunk like the coupe.
The M4 GC will more than likely utilize the same BMW M TwinPower Turbo in-line six as the M3 and M4, giving it 425 hp and 406 torques. The new turbocharged unit, which can develop more than 7,500 rpm, combines the best of both worlds – on the one hand a high-revving design for instant response, linear power delivery over a wide engine speed range and an unmistakable and characterful engine note, and on the other hand BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for maximized torque over a broad rpm range. A further hallmark of this engine is its outstanding efficiency. So this M4 based sedan will still be able to rocket it's passengers down the road , while offering excellent fuel consumption.
It's said that the M4 Gran coupe is set to make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show. I guess we'll have to wait until March to see what the final product will look like
