On tests seen “charged” coupe BMW M4 2021July 17, 2020
Journalists have captured a camouflaged prototype of a “charged” coupe BMW M4. The new 2021 model year will be shown in September.
So-called “spy” photos from tests of a high-performance BMW M4 coupe have come into the possession of our publication. This time, the test prototype of the novelty had slightly less camouflage than before.
In addition to the false radiator grille, which this time has not received a disguise, we can see the headlights and taillights in their standard design, as well as large air intakes in the front. It is reported that we have a prototype of the American version of the model, which received a European license plate, as the car was seen somewhere in the Old Continent.
Even though the body of the car is completely camouflaged, the camouflage is rather subtle and doesn’t really hide much.
Noticeable is the thin trunk spoiler lid as well as the side mirror housings typical of BMW M models and the double roof ribs. The car appeared to have received its final exhaust system and most of the other body parts.
BMW has already announced that the BMW M4 2021 will be unveiled at the First Drive event in September this year. Then we will also see a related model, the M3 sedan.
BMW plans to offer the new M3 and M4 with rear- and all-wheel drive configurations. The transmission will be a 6-speed manual gearbox and an 8-speed automatic ZF, which will be standard on the xDrive all-wheel drive model. The 3.0-liter inline-six will develop up to 510 horsepower (650 Nm) in the Competition version.
According to the latest reports, the rear-wheel drive versions of the M3 and M4 will be the first to go on sale in early 2021. And all-wheel drive performances will only reach brand dealers at the end of 2021. In the future, more powerful M3 CS and M4 CS should appear.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the BMW 4 Series convertible has almost completely lost its camouflage. The Bavarian automaker continues to test its future novelty.
