The cat is pretty much out of the bag when it comes to the design of the new BMW M4, but today we can share a new batch of photos, showing an even less camouflaged prototype. The striptease continues as the Bavarian company puts the finishing touches on the two-door rocket’s debut in September.
These shots were taken by our photographers in Munich just earlier today and show an M4 test car almost without disguise. Sure, the front end carries the necessary amount of camouflage, but it doesn’t even cover an inch of the new giant grilles. The situation is similar at the rear, but the taillights and the quadruple exhaust pipes remain clearly visible.
Judging from this test vehicle, development work on the new M4 is pretty much done at this point and the automaker is most likely doing some final evaluations and tweaks to the sports coupe’s electronics. Everything else appears to be in its final production form.
If you’re more interested in what’s going on under the hood, we’ve got some great news. BMW’s 3.0-liter biturbo engine will be there with over 500 horsepower (373 kilowatts) offered in top-of-the-line models, channeled through a dual-clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive will be standard.
What’s even more exciting, an M4 Pure will be offered alongside the standard version, offering an old-fashioned three-pedal layout but only 480 hp (358 kW) on tap. Finally, there are also rumors of a more practical M4 Gran Coupé.
Everything (or almost everything) should be known in about a month. At some point next month, the automaker will unveil the M3 sedan and the M4 coupe.
