BMW Concept 4 is an early look at the next 4-Series

2019 BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe at Frankfurt motor show

It's sleek and sinuous, right up until you get to the front.

BMW has previewed the design of the forthcoming M3 and M4 with the launch of the BMW Concept 4 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

It's a bold representation of the upcoming coupe and we're sure the oversized grille will prove controversial. As is immediately apparent-we're sorry for your corneas-the Concept 4 rocks an absolutely massive set of vertical kidney grilles that make the already cartoonishly large snouts on the 7 Series and X7 look nearly tame in comparison and has undoubtedly been created to appeal to buyers with, let's say, less subtle tastes. The vertical design takes inspiration from sporting BMWs of the past like the pre-war 328 and 3.0 CSi of the 1970s. Its classic rear-drive coupe proportions are marred by a grille so comically large that the hood has to bulge outward just to flow into it. It shows that the new 4-Series will be a radical departure from its predecessor and have a face dominated by a kidney grille so big it could swallow two children.

Another interesting feature is the LED headlight elements, which have no glass cover - instead they are worked into the body like 3D sculptures.

There's no word on what might power the Concept 4 or the 4 Series Coupe that it foreshadows. In production we expect the 4 Series range to feature many, if not all, the engine options available in the 3 Series sedan and wagon. See it in high-res glory in our image gallery up above.
