A week ago, BMW unveiled the 4-Series Gran Coupe and created quite a buzz on the Web. Still, it didn’t take too long until X-Tomi Design made a rendering with a possible M4 Gran Coupe. We have to admit that this sporty four-door coupe looks impressive and we’d love if BMW will build such a model.
If built, the M4 Gran Coupe will receive the 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine found on the M4 Coupe and M3 Sedan, capable to generate 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.
With this engine, the M4 Gran Coupe hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. With the optional M Driver’s Package, the top speed is raised at 280 km/h or 174 mph.
The engine has a fuel consumption in the EU cycle of 8.3 l/100 km (34 mpg) and CO2 emissions are 194 g/km. Still, the M4 Gran Coupe is just a dream for now!
The BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe features an extended roofline that help underscore its elegance and modernity. Moreover, this extended roofline – which also raises the styling standards in the class – offers some practical benefits. For instance, the extended roofline allows for more interior headroom and comfort. Furthermore, the 4-Series Gran Coupe allows for easier ingress and egress than the 4-Series two-door coupe. Its frameless doors employ the distinctive design features of BMW midsize coupés.
In addition, 4-Series Gran Coupe offers 480 liters of boot capacity – around 35 liters larger than that of the 4-Series two-door version. Loading and unloading has also been made easier thanks to the wide-access boot opening and spacious luggage room.
BMW employed a 40:20:40 split folding backrest for the rear seat, allowing the boot volume to be further increased to a max of 1,300 liters. As standard, the boot lid features an automatic opening and closing mechanism. Customers may avail of the Smart Opener, allowing them to open or close the boot lid with a movement of the foot.
The new 4-Series Gran Coupe also offers round instruments with a black panel look as well as a free-standing flat-screen iDrive monitor.
