BMW Abu Dhabi wraps Snapper Rocks Blue 440i Gran Coupe in M4-like guise

For many, a dream car shouldn’t be just spacious and luxurious, but also fast and furious. The BMW M3 might be just this kind of dream car, but an M version of the 4-Series Gran Coupe would still be a better choice. But to no avail, an M4 Gran Coupe isn't happening yet, even after the 4 Series just recently received a Life Cycle Impulse (mid-cycle update).

BMW Abu Dhabi – which describes itself as an exclusive importer for BMW, MINI and BMW ALPINA in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, United Arab Emirates – has come up with a modified version of a 4-Series Gran Coupe that could be the closest thing we could get to an M4 Gran Coupe. BMW Abu Dhabi has been known for its knack in creating leveled-up versions of a typical BMW vehicle, and this latest custom-build isn't an exception.

BMW Abu Dhabi started off with a regular BMW 440i Gran Coupe. Wrapped in elegant yet sporty Snapper Rocks Blue paint finish, this 440i Gran Coupe is hugged by athletic body kit from M Performance – from its bottom to the top. Its black kidney grilles features M-colored vertical stripes on the front while its rear end features M Performance trunk lid spoiler, as complemented by an Akrapovic exhaust system with an Akrapovic Sport downpipe. Furthermore, this custom-built BMW 440i Gran Coupe rides on 20-inch M Performance wheels. Its driver is treated to an M Performance steering wheel; except for this, the interior of this new 440i Gran Coupe remains the same when it was delivered from the factory.

Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition was made as a raffle prize

BMW’s Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe is no doubt one of the most desirable models out there considering that it comes with almost the whole package. From a head-turning exterior design, impressive power, practical features, and an upscale interior. Depending on how you are feeling, it can be sporty when you want it to be, or it can be the most relaxing cruiser to drive you out of the city without breaking a sweat. And since the Alpina has been pretty successful since it first came out in 2014, the company joined forces with BMW again to create this special edition B6 Gran Coupe.

This one-of-a-kind model has been given quite a lengthy name as the “BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe BMW CCA Edition”. This model was especially made for an upcoming raffle that had been organized by the BMW Car Club of America. On the outside, it wears a signature Blue Metallic paint that represents Alpina, matched with a lovely white leather interior with piano black accents all over.

There is more to the four-door grand tourer’s interior. There are a number of silver inscriptions against a high-gloss lacquer finish on the center console too, while the steering wheel is hand-finished and comes with white stitching details to complement the seat upholstery. This is also why the Alpina B6 gets white piping on the floor and a set of trunk mats. To finish off the look, Alpina put B6 embossed logos onto the headrests.

X-Tomi Design renders BMW 8 Series as Gran Coupe, shooting brake, pickup truck

The automotive community is now anticipating what BMW will do next after it unveiled the Concept 8 Series a few days ago at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Lake Como in Italy as a preview of the 8 Series production model anticipated to arrive in 2018.

The resurrection of the notable badge, which is slated for next year, will have the 2-door coupe variant heading up the lineup. Nevertheless, more body styles will later join the range in the future. According to different sources, a Convertible and a Gran Coupe will see the daylight soon. But will a shooting brake be included?

It was an ecstatic few days when the German automaker unveiled the adorable 8 Series concept and afterwards someone skilled with Photoshop removed its roof to showcase an imagined convertible, one that might actually occur in real life. The person in question is now delving into the idea of other hypothetical derivatives for the sophisticated coupe by envisioning a Gran Coupe model that is made with an unexpected shooting brake and an unanticipated pickup truck. After the 8 Series concept was revealed, renderers just couldn’t resist the urge to come up with their various examples of the said concept.

BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe sells better than the Coupe and Convertible

What defines a coupe? Well, according to the dictionary, “it is a car with a fixed roof and two doors”. Ok, now that it is clear, when does one not become a coupe? In this case, it is when it is a BMW Gran Coupe. You might think I’m confusing you here, but read along.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe was built with four doors and a liftback-style truck on its rear end. That simple description of the model will already raise several brows as it doesn’t correspond with the definition stated above. And if you think about it, its actually just a functional sedan. Now you get where I’m coming from. Though the car doesn’t match the name given to it, it is actually one of BMW’s best selling cars, out-selling the two-door coupe where it got its inspiration.

In fact, despite its later release, the total number of Gran Coupe that has been sold is higher than the figures of the traditional Coupe and the Convertible, combined - according to sales statistics shared by BMW. Globally, the Grand Coupe covers 54 percent of all 4 Series sales, whereas the remaining 46 percent is a shared by the traditional coupe and convertible.

With rumors swirling that German premium carmaker BMW is working hard to reincarnate the 8 Series -- its biggest two-door ever made – it can’t be helped that another resurrection related to the 8 Series is now being speculated.

We are referring to the long-dead M8 which BMW never really produced and which was only seen as a single prototype. BMW originally intended the BMW M8 to be a rival for Ferrari’s sports cars. To that end, BMW developed a special version of the S70 engine – which is in turn a bored out version of the M70 powerplant -- and made it so that it could generate at most 550 hp (410 kW or 558 PS).

Incidentally, the M8 was born in 1990, although in pre-production form. But since BMW realized that a market doesn’t exist for the M8, it decided to drop the project indefinitely. By the time the M8 project was thrown to the trash bin, BMW has only created one prototype, which according to reports, wasn’t even safe enough to be driven on the roads. It doesn’t even have headlights! This M8 prototype was eventually locked away in BMW’s so-called poison storage (Giftschrank).

Honestly, the 2018 BMW 6 Series – remains as it is. This means customers shouldn’t expect any radical mechanical changes or inner working revisions on the latest version of the BMW 6 Series, which means the Coupe, Convertible and the Gran Coupe.

For those who were looking for a cheaper alternative to the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and were waiting for an M4 Gran Coupe, we have bad news as the German manufacturer will not offer such a vehicle. These words came from BMW’s M GmbH sales boss Jorg Bartels. Apparently, BMW considered the M4 Gran Coupe but abandoned the plans.

Bartels also added that BMW doesn’t build the 4-Series Gran Coupe in the same factory where it builds the 3-Series Sedan and 4-Series Coupe, which means it will need to make lots of changes. BMW currently builds the M3 Sedan (F30) and the 3-Series Sedan (F30) at its Regensburg factory, while the M4 Coupe (F82) and 4-Series Coupe (F32) at its Munich plant.

The 4-Series Gran Coupe (F36) is built at the Dingolfing factory. So, if you want a powerful version of the 4-Series Gran Coupe you have to choose the 435i Gran Coupe, which uses a 3.0-liter engine that delivers 306 hp (225 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.
