Ever since the new BMW 3-Series saloon was released earlier this year, we’ve wondered what the coupe version (to be known as the 4-Series) and its M-version would look like.

Ever since the new BMW 3-Series saloon was released earlier this year, we’ve wondered what the coupe version (to be known as the 4-Series) and its M-version would look like.

Well now, thanks to the expert rendering skills of Roger Lighterness over at BMWBlog, we can imagine how the M4 will look. Taking the front end style of the 3-Series, Roger has given the M4 a lower nose, flared arches and the trademark M-GmbH side vents. The rear end sees a shape like the current coupe which is a fair guess.

The new M3 and M4 models were recently confirmed by President of BMW North America, Mr. Ludwig Willisch, to be powered by an in-line six cylinder turbo engine. It is expected to have two or three turbos and develop around 450 HP (331 kW / 444 bhp).

M-fans will be pleased to hear that though a V6 turbo engine was considered, BMW decided to stick with the traditional BMW layout of an in-line six cylinder engine.
