    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.

    Cat Butt or Buffalo Butt, that is what that new grill comes across to me as.

    Clearly NOT GOOD BMW.

    The profile is absolutely beautiful but that grille is so unbelievably awful. 

    This is outstanding.

    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?

    They should make a grille that is as high as the top of the roof that you can see through.  A 5 foot high grille is probably good for crash protection.

    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:

      Nissan is known for their Zero Gravity Seats found in many of their vehicles, some of the most comfortable cars seats I've found in the industry.  Nissan took that experience and applied it to three gaming chair concepts aimed at the gaming crowd.
      First of the three is a chair based on the Nissan GT-R Nismo (shown above). It's made from carbon fiber and aluminum and shaped like a racing seat. The soft areas are covered with a red leather and synthetic suede surfaces.
      My personal favorite is the Nissan Armada. Inspired by Nissan's full-size SUV, the chair is based on the Platinum Reserve with black and brown leather seating surfaces in the shape of a captain's chair. It has climate controlled heating and cooling with lumbar support for additional comfort.

      Finally, the Nissan Leaf. It features gun metal painted surfaces with light-gray leather-appointed seats with electric blue inserts, usb charging ports, and integrated leg rests.

      Unfortunately, Nissan has no current plans to build any of these chairs, but is gauging public reaction.  If you are interested in one of these chairs, but sure to tweet them at @NissanUSA.  What say you reader? Should Nissan build one of these models?

      Mercedes-Benz unveiled the Vision EQS Concept today in Frankfurt. The Vision EQS represents the future of luxurious driving. 
      Powering the Vision EQS is a dual motor system with continuous all wheel drive with approximately 469 horsepower and with about 560 lbs.-ft of torque. The juice for all that power comes from an approximately 100 kWh battery.  The top speed is estimated at 124 mph and 0 to 60 will happen in less than four and a half seconds.  The Vision EQS is capable of DC fast charging up to 350 KW. Range is estimated at around 435 on the WLTP rating cycle. 
      The interior of the EQS is intended to remind passengers of the deck of a boat, taking its inspiration from luxury yachts. The interior uses a portion of recycled plastic reclaimed from ocean waste. The wood is Maple from ecologically managed forests in Germany.  By using wood from Germany, it ensures a short transportation distance to reduce the CO2 output of the assembly process.
