The first purported picture of the BMW M4 Coupe concept has surfaced online.

Posted by Auto55, the image suggests the car will have an aggressive front bumper with a carbon fiber front lip spoiler. The model also has LED-infused headlights, aerodynamic mirrors and an M6-inspired grille. Other notable features include a 'power dome' hood and a carbon fiber roof.

The publication didn't mention any performance specifications but the model is expected to use a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops approximately 450 bhp (335 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra oomph and several weight saving measures - that could reduce the curb weight by 100 kg (220 lbs) - the M4 could accelerate from 0-100 km/h in a little as 4.2 seconds.

The website says the M4 Coupe concept will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, so we could learn more shortly.

Update: The company confirmed plans to introduce a "never before seen concept from BMW M" at the The Quail: a Motorsports Gathering later this week
