BMW M4 Coupe (F82) Drops Some Camo and Looking Great!

It's been a while since the last spotting of the F82 M4 Coupe, but it's been worth the wait this sighting as the prototype has now lost some camouflage, revealing much more!

So, what revealing things do we see in this new sighting?

• Double slatted kidney grilles.
• LED headlights
• LED tail lights
• Sculpted double-bubble carbon fiber roof (a la M6 Coupe)
• Production side mirrors (but still under camouflage)
• Integrated trunk spoiler
• Deliciously wide rear stance

The M4 Coupe is shaping up to be one beautiful car!

What about the F82 M4 mechanicals? If you recall, we recently reported on information gleamed from the M4 prototype's registered VIN information (posted below).

The highlight is the 310kW (415 hp) S55 3.0L inline 6 engine listed [photos]. Consistent with the information we've been posting, this would have the next M3 and M4 featuring similar horsepower figures to the current M3 (414 hp) from the 3.0L inline 6 multi-turbo S55 engine. But, we've also been previously told by a trusty source familiar with F80/F82 development that the cars will boast approximately 100 lb-ft more torque (in range of 395 lb-ft) (source).

The same source also told us that engineers were targeting E46 M3 weight. The E46 M3's curb weight is 3,415 lb, while the current E90 M3 and E92 M3 weigh 3,726 and 3,704 pounds, respectively. This would represent an approximate 300 pound weight reduction; great news for BMW enthusiasts who bemoan the increasing weight of cars in general. The caveat to keep in mind however, is that curb weight is calculated based on the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, and with the ever growing list of standard equipment and technology in late model cars, don't be surprised or disappointed if you don't see exactly 300 pounds shaved. What's important is that the E46 M3 weight is being used as a target, which in any scenario, should result in significant weight reduction for the new M3 and M4.

The rest of the VIN information reveals many of the features and options to be available for the F80 M3 and F82 M4. See the full VIN info below.

The F80 M3 sedan will be introduced late 2013 - early 2014 (concept to debut earlier). M3 European Delivery will begin June 2014, at earliest. Look for a possible reveal of the F82 M4 Coupe later this year - early next year.

That's kool, but still lots of camo to go. You mentioned CF roof...hard to tell in these photos.

Is that something that'll make it to the actual production vehicle in yr1?

The trunk screams E46. Thats not a bad thing though.

Not sure how I feel about the wheels though. They appear to be a bit to close to those of the M5/M6.

Looks amazing. But the last time I saw an engine bay that cramped it was in a Z32 300ZX Twin Turbo.

That interior image is a render, along with the two pics above it.

Anyways, M4 is looking great in these pics, especially the rear views!

This looks really promising. Seems as if they're adding the "bubble-roof" from the M6 as well. Oh, and that stance!

I really hope those aren't the production rear-view mirrors though. First of all, they are butt ugly, but more importantly - they lack any form of M traits, unlike the E36, E46, E92.

rear tail light looks more like that of F30 than what we've been seeing on concept 4 series car. :/

Yes there is a double scooped CFRP roof like the M6. As is LED headlights from the 4er Concept which are adaptive and will be offered as optional equipment on the standard 4er Coupe.

The wing mirrors are still disguised with current M5/M6 covers and are hiding more shapely and aerodynamically formed wing mirrors.

now that some more of the camo is off - the renders are looking more and more accurate- which is incredible. if the new m4 looks close to the renders, BMW will have a huge hit on its hands, and i'll be picking up a new M4.

Scott, any comment about the true shape of the rear trunk/boot/spoiler? What we see in the spy shots isn't lining up with the renders.
