The 4 Series Coupé’s production version is close to the BMW Concept 4 which the company presented at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Its exterior retains the styling cues of the mentioned concept car, meaning sharp lines, sleek design, an oversized double-kidney grille that the future BMW Ms will adopt.
The coupé’s agility, steering precision and cornering dynamics are enhanced by an exceptionally stiff body structure with additional bracing, bespoke geometry and the chassis setup.
