After the official announcement, BMW introduced at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas the M4 Concept Iconic Lights. Wearing a Cool White metallic coat, the M4 Concept Iconic Lights arrives with a new interpretation of the well-known BMW twin round headlights.
Thanks to the fine blue strips inside the lights, the laser technology can be easily identified and the BMW Laserlight promises to set new standards in terms of beam range and brightness.
The headlights not only consume 30 percent less energy, but the parallel light beam is 10 times more intense than produced by halogen, xenon or LED light sources. In addition, the BMW Laserlight has a beam range of up to 600 metres, more than twice that of conventional headlights.
The integration with the navigation system is even more interesting as it allows the proactive Adaptive Headlight control system to illuminate corners before the steering wheel is turned. Furthermore, the Night Vision system’s Dynamic Light Spot function can detect people and animals from a distance of up to 100 metres.
Also, the “High Power Laser” diodes are able to project information directly onto the road in front of the vehicle. At the rear, there are new taillights featuring OLED technology and by activating the OLED segments individually it is possible to create different rear lightning effects.
Even more interesting is the fact that in the Sport mode a different-shaped light pattern can be used by activating only some of the OLED segments.
For those who still don’t know, the BMW M4 Coupe is powered by a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.
The engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. [source: BMW]
