The new BMW 4 Series Coupe Design Preview

Description

The concept of sporty driving pleasure in the premium midsize segment is being redefined and will soon be available to experience in the new BMW 4 Series Coupe. Following a series of exhaustive test drives held as part of the development process to prepare it for series production, the latest incarnation of the two-door model is now embarking on the final phase of dynamic testing. After having their driving qualities honed at the winter testing centre in Arjeplog, Sweden, at the BMW Group’s test centre in Miramas in France, on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit and at various other race tracks, the prototypes are now returning to their roots: engineers will put the final touches to the chassis technology of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe on the motorways and country roads around the BMW Group’s Research and Innovation Centre (FIZ) in Munich.

    The 68th IAA Cars show in Frankfurt is the venue for the unveiling of the BMW Concept 4 – a future-focused interpretation of the BMW Group’s enduring DNA that represents the magic of coupe driving at its most exciting.The BMW Concept 4 hovers close to the road. The distinctive kidney grille, remarkable air intakes and prominently sculpted surfaces provide an immediate advert for the car’s performance and its engaging character as a driver’s car.Grabbing the attention at the heart of the front end is the vertical kidney grille. “The kidney grille has always been a signature feature of BMW cars,” reflects Domagoj Dukec, Head of BMW Design. “The BMW Concept 4 presents a confident and classy take on this iconic feature. At the same time, the BMW Concept 4 offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4 Series range.” The vertically oriented grille fits seamlessly into both the proportions of the front end and BMW’s illustrious past. Indeed, its form and design reference legendary classics such as the BMW 328 or the BMW 3.0 CSi and therefore shine the spotlight on the BMW brand’s long and successful history as a maker of fine coupes.

  • The new BMW M5 Competition Design Preview

    The arrival of the new BMW M5 and BMW M5 Competition sees the high-performance sedans from BMW M GmbH returning to the stage in even sharper form. With its stylistic fine-tuning, an operating concept honed to good effect and a central display enlarged to 12.3 inches, the new BMW M5 is a more compelling proposition than ever. Featuring new shock absorbers from the BMW M8 Gran Coupé and a retuned chassis, the immensely powerful and dynamic BMW M5 Competition offers even better driveability and handling at the limit, combined with superior comfort levels. As a result, the BMW M5 and BMW M5 Competition blend a business sedan's unruffled everyday usability with unbeatable highperformance sports car dynamics to alluring effect.Like the other models in the BMW 5 Series line-up, the new BMW M5 and BMW M5 Competition both sport an updated, new-look BMW kidney grille. The LED headlights and LED rear lights also have a sharper appearance, while the front apron - with its large air intakes - and the rear apron have been sculpted to even more dramatic effect. Inside the cabin, the larger central touchscreen display immediately catches the eye. The straightforward method of individually configuring and selecting various driving modes via two buttons in the centre console has been adopted from the BMW M8.In the BMW M5, the 4.4-litre V8 engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology generates 441 kW/600 hp, while in the BMW M5 Competition the high-revving unit produces 460 kW/625 hp. Credit for negotiating the dynamic tightrope between full everyday usability on the one hand and driving pleasure and exceptional track performance on the other goes to the M xDrive system and its centralised intelligent control approach for the Active M Differential. As an alternative to variable all-wheel-drive mode (4WD) with its rear-biased baseline setup, handling characteristics can be altered by varying degrees up to 2WD mode. This pure rear-wheel drive setting without DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) treats accomplished drivers to completely unadulterated driving pleasure.

  • The all-new BMW 4 Series Coupé and classic BMW Coupés Design by Domagoj Dukec

    The new BMW 4 Series Coupé, which celebrated its digital world premiere today, is a truly exceptional car that redefines the essence of driving pleasure in the premium midsize segment. The online presentation of the sporty two-door model offered a wide-ranging insight into the vehicle concept and its fascinating history, as well as the car’s distinctive design and freshly honed dynamics. A recording of the entire premiere event hosted by Pieter Nota (Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Customer, Brands and Sales), Klaus Fröhlich (Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Development) and Domagoj Dukec (Head of BMW Design) is now available to download, along with photographs of the presentation.The BMW Group’s design studio in Munich, the historic halls of BMW Group Classic and the BMW Group test centre in Aschheim co-hosted the world premiere of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé. The evolution of the two-door car’s aesthetic in keeping with BMW’s new styling language is particularly evident under the design studio spotlights. Here, Domagoj Dukec explained the design process that went into creating the sporty, graceful and exclusive aura of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé. The focus here was on standalone design features, notably the large, upright BMW kidney grille angling forward at the front end of the coupé, the athletically sculpted shoulders above the rear wheel arches, the car’s dynamically stretched proportions and its wide tracks. These elements put clear water between the new car and the latest BMW 3 Series Sedan, while also giving it a significantly sharper character than its predecessor. “The new BMW 4 Series displays the signature BMW proportions in their most modern form yet,” said Dukec. “The front end makes a very clear statement on the road. The striking, vertical kidney grille and iconic twin headlights create a bold and confident identity.”
