The new BMW M4 is one of the worst kept secrets of the automotive industry considering we’ve seen our fair share of hugely revealing spy shots. Add a couple more as a member of the Bimmer Post forums has shared an image of what’s likely a pre-production prototype without any camouflage whatsoever. While the shape and size of the grille itself is not a surprise, you will notice the kidneys have horizontal slats replacing the intricate mesh of the lesser 4 Series Coupe models.
In our opinion, the front bumper design doesn’t look necessarily more aggressive than the one reserved for the M440i xDrive model, which is a bit of a surprise. The sides of the bumper are hosting vertical vents, although it remains to be seen whether those are actually functional to cool the brakes or are there just for show.
Another change we’re able to observe compared to the 4 Series Coupe / M440i is the prominent front spoiler lip finished in glossy black. Look higher and you’ll see the redesigned hood has two indentations that seem to stretch from nearly the base of the windshield to the bottom of the hood. The viewing angle doesn’t allow us to see if there are actual vents to cool down the engine or it’s simply a design element.
If you’re having doubts about the authenticity of the image, you shouldn’t. Previous spy shots fully revealing the front…
