Forgoing its sometimes confusing naming structure, BMW decided to move its coupes away from the 3 Series badge, referring to future versions as a 4 Series instead.
Last month our spy photographer caught one of the 4 Series test mules taking its top off in a parking lot, but the pictures were taken through a fence and didn’t really show much. As our mothers were fond of saying, all good things come to those who wait. The same is true in the autos world and this time we’re getting a look inside the new 4 Series.
In the pictures, we see the 4 Series wearing BMW split five-spoke wheels and an awful lot of swirly camouflage. The same headlights reminiscent of the gun ports for a WWII German fighter plane are also intact but inside most of the car is covered in a black cloth wrap. We can, however, pick a few things out. There’s an LCD screen mounted mid dash showing the predictable iDrive system as well as a mostly black interior with silver accents.
When it debuts, the new 4 Series Bimmer line is expected to source power from the BMW 328i and 335i with a 240-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and turbo 302-hp 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder respectively.
