2017 BMW M4 facelift spied again
The facelifted BMW M4 coupe has been spotted again, and this time around the spy photographers also managed to snag photos of what might be a slightly more aggressive new variant in the range.
The white car seen in this set features a more prominent front splitter and a fairly tall lip spoiler on the boot. There’s also extra disguise on the bonnet hiding a toned down version of the engine bump seen on the M4 GTS.
This prototype is fitted with mismatched front and rear alloy wheels. Up front, the car wears 19-inch alloy wheels with 265/55 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, while at the rear there’s the 20-inch GTS alloys with wider versions of the Michelin rubber.
Snapped along with the white car is a red prototype that does without those extra aerodynamic aids. Both cars feature revised headlight internals, as well as what seem to be OLED tail-lights.
It’s expected that the updated M4 will feature an unchanged drivetrain. That means a 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six with 317kW of power and 550Nm of torque.
Drive will again be sent to the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. When fitted with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the pre-facelift M4 is capable of running from 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds.
