BMW compatriots decided to correct the appearance of the “four”

The German tuning studio Prior Design decided to tweak the exterior of the BMW M4, ridding the sports car of the most criticized element – the giant radiator grille. So far, the tuners have published only a video showing how a coupe can look without hypertrophied “nostrils”.

In some renders, the exterior of the M4 is close to the BMW M8 or M5, which are equipped with relatively compact radiator grilles. The raised grille has made room for larger air intakes. In addition, the coupe was significantly underestimated, equipped with a more aggressive front bumper and splitter.

To date, the tuners have only sketches ready, but Prior Design says they have already found potential buyers for the converted M4.

The huge BMW radiator grille, which debuted on the iNEXT concept car in 2018, has been heavily criticized from both the brand’s fans and the automotive community, including designers. Despite the controversial reaction of the audience, BMW designers said they were not going to give up the “nostrils” and will continue to use them on new products.

The M4 coupe debuted at the same time as the M3 sedan at the end of September. The models were designed in a similar vein and equipped with a 3.0-liter “biturbo-six”, producing 480 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque in the standard version, and 510 forces and 650 Nm of torque in the powerful Competition.
