The customary (and nonetheless yet-to-be-revealed) BMW M4 has a comparatively regular quad-tipped exhaust with twin pipes on all sides of the bumper. The prototype we’re taking a look at right here is completely completely different, because it incorporates a stacked, center-exit quad exhaust design.
It’s harking back to Lexus F efficiency vehicles like the IS F, RC F and GS F, however as an alternative of placing the stacked exhaust on the corners, BMW has jammed all of it proper into the heart of the bumper. The look is reasonably unique in nature, nevertheless it appears to be like particularly bizarre when all the different sporty bits are coated up in camouflage. We received’t decide the design with out seeing it as a full bundle. At the very least, we predict it has potential to look exceedingly cool. Let’s simply hope BMW has gotten the exhaust word for the 3.0-liter turbo inline-six proper this time round.
As for the remainder of the automotive, the design suggests it is a excessive efficiency M4 variant that goes above the customary M4 Competition. That massive wing mounted on the decklid is screaming GTS at us, however we are able to’t rule out the chance of this being a CS trim both. Although, if we assume the launch cadence of this technology of M4 will probably be something like the final, the CS will probably be the final of the variants to be rolled out. That solely provides extra credence to this being a GTS.
In addition to the new exhaust and wing, this one has new diffuser fins connected to the rear. The entrance splitter appears to be like to be a hair extra aggressive, however BMW has retained the identical grille and venting setup. Our view of the wheel and tire setup is compromised at finest, however they seem like excessive efficiency Michelins. Some large purple brake calipers are lurking behind the darkish painted wheels, too.
We’re unsure when this mannequin will come to life, however assuming it’s the GTS, it is going to almost definitely be the highest performing M4 all through this technology’s lifespan.
