Today BMW unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show a design study called the Concept 4, a prototype explicitly meant to preview the next-generation 4 Series coupe.
The element of the new concept that will get most tongues wagging is, without a doubt, the massive front grille, so massive in fact it evokes the way the brand used to present the noses of its models. For proof, take a look if you have a moment at the pre-war 328, or the 1970s-era 3.0 CSi and 2002 models.
“The kidney grille has always been a signature feature of BMW cars. The BMW Concept 4 presents a confident and classy take on this iconic feature. At the same time, the BMW Concept 4 offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4-Series range.”
