Popular German premium car maker BMW could be seen unveil the new BMW M4, albeit in a concept version, at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. The source of this info is AutoExpressUK, who claim to have got to know about this from Klaus Froehlich, Senior Vice President of Brand and Product Strategies at BMW Group.
The fast approaching BMW M4, which has been codenamed as F82, will be the successor to the recently discontinued BMW M3 Coupe. Nothing surprising here as the popular German car maker recently unveiled the new 4 series of cars. As mentioned in our earlier reports, the BMW 4 Series is a part of BMW’s plans to plug in all the gaps in its current lineup of cars by offering new body variants of the existing cars with more features and at a higher price. The new nomenclature has been done in such a way that all the 4 door sedans get odd numbered series names and the Gran Coupe/ Coupe/ Cabriolet get even numbered series names. The M4 should hit the dealerships in 2014, a year after the all new M3 sedan break cover.
Powering the M4 will be an inline six-cylinder motor that will be seen replacing the current M3’s 4.0 liter V8. However, nothing else could be confirmed about the new motor. Our guess is that the power plant will be a 450 bhp 3.0 liter twin-turbo affair.
