If you could remember the first time that the F82 generation of the M4 was introduced by BMW in 2014 – the performance version of the 4 Series – it was wrapped in a beautiful yet sporty exterior color finish. Thus, as the BMW M4’s official launch color, Austin Yellow has been one of the most-sought color finishes simply because it appropriately matches the performance coupe’s dynamism and athleticism.
While Austin Yellow may have become one of the most sought and most common finishes for the BMW M4, it didn’t stop customers – even those seeking for something unique and bespoke – from opting for this hue.
Now, BMW Abu Dhabi Motors – the largest BMW dealership in the world – has managed to take a hold of this special kind of BMW M4 (F82) as wrapped in Austin Yellow exterior color. Well, the exterior color might be one of the most common exterior finishes for the BMW M4, but when combined and complemented by a number of specially made elements from M Performance, Austin Yellow stands out very well. These components are finished in gloss black and carbon fiber, both helping accentuate the sporty appearance of the BMW M4.
For instance, this Austin Yellow BMW M4 is fitted with a customized body kit from the carmaker’s M Performance division. This M Performance body kit includes a carbon fiber front splitter as well as carbon fiber front air intake surrounds. Likewise, black kidney grilles and the wing mirror caps of this Austin Yellow BMW M4 come from M Performance, as well as its rear diffuser and lip spoiler and carbon tailpipes. Protecting the engine bay is a carbon fiber hood as provided by Manhart.
In addition, this particular Austin Yellow BMW M4 features some customized components inside the cabin. Sourced from M Performance is the coupe’s steering wheel that comes with a digital display and shift lights. This M4’s carbon fiber selector cover and metal pedals are also sourced from M Performance.
Overall, the visual and aerodynamic tweaks implemented on this Austin Yellow BMW M4 have made this performance coupe look simply stunning.
There were no mentioned tweaks on the BMW M4’s dynamic performance, so we’ll assume that it is as powerful as a typical M4. A typical 2017 BMW M4 is powered by the high-revving S55 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that could develop 450 hp of max output (plus 25 hp from 2016 BMW M4) and 406 lb.-.ft of peak torque. For the 2017 model year, the BMW M4 got a Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) -- BMW’s term for mid-cycle update or refresh. The 2017 BMW M4 is given a sharper design with adaptive full-LED headlights and newly designed full-LED rear lights now featured as standard.
