2014 Bmw 4-Series Coupe gets M Performance parts

Article by Christian A., on July 19, 2013

Bmw introduced the 4-Series Coupe fitted with M Performance parts and we must say that the car looks amazing. Actually, the 4-Series fitted with M Performance parts gives us a clue of how the upcoming Bmw M4 will look like. As you can see from the photos, the 4-Series Coupe features a more aggressive body kit consisting of a new front bumper with carbon fiber splitter and larger air inlets, redesigned side sills, carbon fiber exterior mirror covers, black chrome trims for the window surrounds and front grille, a new boot deck spoiler and a redesigned rear bumper with integrated air diffuser.

The exterior design is completed by the 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the car features a new three-spoke steering wheel, new sport seats, M Performance floor mats, carbon fiber trim on the hand brake, gearshift levers and dashboard.

Bmw also offers a power boost for the engines as it follows: the 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel found on the 420d now delivers extra 16 bhp and 39 Nm (29 lb-ft) of torque, which means a total of 195 bhp and 418 Nm (309 lb-ft) of torque;

the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine found on the 428i received an extra 27 bhp and 39 Nm (29 lb-ft) of torque, which means a total of 269 hp and 389 Nm (287 lb-ft) of torque; the 6-cylinder, 3.0-liter gasoline engine receives 34 bhp and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) of torque, for a total of 336 bhp and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. Bmw managed to upgrade the engines with the use of a new exhaust system and some software tweaks.

BMW's new 4-Series Coupe possesses dynamic proportions that significantly differ from those of BMW's outgoing 3-Series Coupe. The car has a length of 4,638 mm, making it 26 mm longer than the 3-Series Coupe. It also has a 2,810-mm wheelbase, which is 50 mm longer; and a 1,362-mm high roofline, which runs 16 mm lower. The dimensions of the wheelbase and the roofline shine a clear spotlight on the coupe outline, which is dynamically stretched.

These dimensions also join together with the 4-Series Coupe's short overhangs, set-back passenger compartment, long bonnet, and flowing roofline, which are typical of a BMW, in order to create a silhouette that boasts impeccable visual balance.

What's more, the BMW 4-Series Coupe's athletic appearance has been rounded off by the additional 43 mm in its width, giving it a total of 1,825 mm. Moreover, for the very first time, the car's rear wheel arches mark its broadest point, which is a clear statement of its dynamic intent. Additionally, the resultant front track, which is 45 mm wider at 1,545 mm, as well as its rear axle, which is 80 mm wider at 1,593 mm total, promises further improvements in its already outstanding sporting characteristics, which is what BMW is known for.

Furthermore, the car sports an eye-catching front end that showcases prominently sporting contours. Also, signature BMW front-end design elements, like the twin circular headlights and double-kidney grille, identify the 4-Series as a BMW at very first glance. And while the 4-Series is undoubtedly excited to flaunt its close ties with the 3-Series, it still shows a more sporting approach when it comes to its work, highlighting its dynamic convictions. Additionally, the car's head-turning front end demonstrates multifaceted surfaces and precise contours.

Following the ideal line to a more intensive driving experience: BMW M Performance Parts for the BMW 4-Series

Model-specific BMW M Performance Parts available from the beginning of 2014 provide additional ways of authentically emphasising the sporty character of the coupé and making the driving experience even more intense. The BMW M Performance Power Kit available for the BMW 420d (+12Kw, +40Nm), BMW 430d (+20kW, +40Nm) and BMW 435i (+25kW, +50Nm) delivers a perceptible increase in power and performances, without affecting fuel consumption and exhaust emission levels. A BMW M Performance silencer system is also available for the models BMW 428i and BMW 435i. It comprises BMW M Performance tailpipe embellishers in chrome, as well as in carbon for the BMW 435i. Meanwhile the BMW M Performance limited-slip differential ensures traction-optimised power transmission on bends. Other features that boost the coupé's dynamic potential are the BMW M Performance suspension with sporty set-up, the BMW M Performance brake system with red, yellow or orange calipers and the BMW M Performance light alloy wheels. The weight-optimised forged wheels in 20-inch format are available in two design variants as well as in the typical BMW M Performance bi-colour look in Ferric Grey with burnished spoke fronts. Another new feature in the BMW M Performance range is the 18-inch winter complete wheel sets in double-spoke design.

The dynamic charisma of the BMW 4-Series can also be given greater emphasis by means of BMW M Performance components for the exterior. A black radiator grid for the BMW kidney grille, a diffuser insert for the rear apron, side sill foils with M Performance inscription, BMW M Performance side stripes and carbon front splitters, mirror caps and rear spoiler optimise the coupe's sporty appearance and aerodynamic properties. An interior ambience inspired by racing is ensured by the BMW M Performance sports steering wheel with red central marking or Race Display in 12 o'clock position as well as gear lever and handbrake handle in carbon including Alcantara gaiter. A carbon finish is likewise available for the gear selector switch of the automatic transmission. In addition, interior strips in carbon and Alcantara, high-grade steel pedals, a specially designed driver footrest and BMW M Performance floor mats are also available for the BMW 4-Series.

The new BMW 4-Series Coupé with BMW M Performance Parts premieres at the IAA in 2013.
