Scoop: BMW M4 Getting Ready For A Light Nip And Tuck

The BMW M4 is about to get its mid-life refresh, following the footsteps of its four-door brother.

This means that the high-performance two-door coupe will be brought in line with the latest design features of the range, including a set of redesigned headlights and taillights.

The prototype you see here backs our expectations, with BMW applying a camo wrap only in the front fascia, the lower part of the front bumper and the rear end around the lights and license plate. While they tried to cover their tracks with a set of GTS-specific orange alloys, our spies were not fooled.

The interior was also hidden which means that the company is going to breath some fresh air onto the dashboard too, probably with the use of new trims and the latest of their infotainment systems.

Power will continue coming from the turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engine that is expected to remain as is, offering 425hp (431PS) and 406lb ft (550Nm) of peak torque and paired to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

A competition package will also be available, offering 444hp (450PS), a sharper setup and mild visual differences, including a blacked-out chrome work on the outside.
