BMW is going to give us a full-blown M version of the upcoming X4 as these spy shots confirm.
The first prototypes have already hit the street, wearing a thin camo wrap at the usual places trying to hide its sportier nature.
The more aggressive body kit includes a front fascia with bigger air intakes for the intercoolers, deeper side sills, a more muscular rear bumper and four fat tail pipes.
The sportier wheels house behind them the bigger brakes that employ cross-drilled rotors and blue calipers. Under the bonnet we’ll probably find BMW’s new S58 engine which is a twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six unit that’s good for at least 450hp in the case of the upcoming X4M and X3M models.
Other than that, the upcoming BMW X4 looks a lot sleeker than its predecessor, especially at the rear, but as we’ve said before the styling appears to look too similar with the Mercedes GLC Coupe, the X4’s main rival.
Let’s hope we’re wrong once BMW launches the X4 sometime in the first half of 2018, with the M version to follow shortly after.
