Spied: Bmw 4-Series Coupe (435i) shows up completely undisguised

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 31, 2013

Pictures of an undisguised production version of BMW’s 4-series Coupé, in 435i specification, were captured during a photo shoot. A concept of the 4-series was seen at the Los Angeles motor show as a preview. It will start selling in the later part of 2013 as a replacement of the 3-series Coupé.

From these images, it’s apparent that several of the more prominent styling details of the car will not be carried over to the production version. The lower rear bumper appears a lot more conventional as it doesn’t have the full-width mesh insert and integrated tailpipes seen on the concept.

We could see the razor sharp crease lines of the concept down the length of the bodyside but its door handle has shifted above the bold line that can be seen from the front wing to the rear three-quarter panel.

The launch of the 4-series range will be simultaneous with that of the Coupé. A convertible will follow in 2014. The highly awaited M4 will appear in the later part of 2014. A cabrio version is then expected to arrive in 2015. It’s expected that BMW will add a four-door 4-series GranCoupé. It’s also possible that BMW will release an M4 GranCoupé to complete this range.
