    BMW Shows the New Face of The 4-series with the BMW Concept 4

      ...My what a big grille you have...

    BMW released a preview of the BMW Concept 4 for the Frankfurt Auto Show today.  The concept features a large vertical grille that will become the new face of the BMW 4-series. The slim headlights have no glass cover allowing a sculptured look to the LED elements. The 4-series features a stretched out hood, long wheelbase, and short overhangs to give an elegant and sporty appearence while the wheel arches contribute to a powerful stance.

    BMW did not give any hints as to the powertrain, but the 4-series currently comes in 248 horsepower, 320 horsepower, and 425 horsepower flavors. 

    This low slung concept is clearly an early look at the next 4-series refresh coming in about a year.

    Telling that theres no head-on front shot.

    BMW has no stylistic rudder. The basic shape is good here, but the grille/front fascia and whatever it's giving birth to out its rear needs an overhaul.

    Doesn't really matter; another concept soon to be tarped in the warehouse, forever.

    Great side profile, the horsepower part they got right, the grille is way wrong.  That grille won't make production though.

    Are you sure about that?  That grille made the new X8.   What makes you think that BMW will stop at the X8?

    There are front shots, you just have to flip through the pictures.

    This looks much larger than THAT grille.

    That's the current 4-series horsepower. 

    Oh right, well I think the 3-series is 255 hp and 385 hp, that I assume will carry over, probably 475 in the M3/M4.  Power we know won’t be an issue with a BMW.

    the more I look at this grille, the more I hate it. 

    I feel that you would pick this up and slam that nose onto a tough piece of beef to tenderize it. :dizzy:
