Red BMW 435i Coupe M-Sport Drops By Abu Dhabi Dealership

If you’re falling short of buying a BMW M4, yet you end up owning a 435i Coupe, odds are you’ll still be enormously satisfied with your car.

Sure, the M4 is the ultimate dream for most BMW enthusiasts, but go deeper into the 4 Series range and you’ll find some really quick versions – 435i & 435d stand out the most.

This gorgeous red 435i Coupe was on display in Abu Dhabi at a BMW dealership, wearing M-Sport duds and obviously lacking a very important badge on the truck lid.

I’m talking about the ‘xDrive’ badge of course, which helps the 435i hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds instead of the 5.1 seconds this car (rear wheel drive model) would need.

At the same time, you could argue that you’re having more fun in the RWD version, and you’d be right, if indeed that sort of fun is all you’re looking for and you don’t mind sacrificing straight line performance as well as grip.

You’ll also notice that the car is fitted with Akrapovic exhaust tips, which is a good thing since the in-line 6 in the 435i doesn’t exactly sound beastly.

So yeah, we’re looking at a 5.1 second sprint time to 100 km/h, which is great, obviously, and it’s all thanks to the car’s 306 PS and 400 Nm (295 lb ft) of torque.

Even more impressive is the fact that this engine isn’t that much more thirsty than say the 4 cylinder unit in the 428i, so you can easily use it as your every day car, without having to stress out too much about fuel consumption.

A fantastic car overall.

    The wood trim in this car looks so wrong and out of place.

    • Grumpy

      Metals or carbon fiber would do well for performance oriented cars. In general BMW wood choices are not eye pleasing. Mercedes black ash wood, or Lexus Bamboo, look great.

    • Six_Tymes

      I agree, it does look good.

    • pcurve

      I think so too. It might’ve been ok if the interior was beige. Black leather + red wood = eeh…

  • Akira

    Not a big fan of the wheels and the interior looks quite boring…

    • Grumpy

      Too much of the black in the interior. Needs different colors. I’m more concerned with that tire. One small pothole, and there goes the whole wheel.

  • Kannag Don Amenra

    Stunning. I’ll take one in white please…

  • Zandit75

    Gorgeous on the outside. Lost the plot on the interior with the woodgrain. You don’t mix Carbon Fibre with woodgrain.

    I was about to say it looked good(surprisingly for Abu Dhabi dealership), then I saw the interiors with ’90s wood as there was in my dad’s old Ford Escort SW. Ew.
