BMW at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show
First, there’s the hotly anticipated 4-Series Coupe. To be shown as a concept, this replacement for the 3-Series coupe is wider, longer and better looking than its predecessor. It is clearly differentiated from the 3-Series range through new headlight and grille design and should enter full production later in the year.
Next up, the brand new M6 Gran Coupe will make its debut in Detroit, the biggest M model to date. It features a big carbon fiber roof and will be priced between the M6 Coupe and Cabriolet. Despite having two more doors than the regular M6, it’s just as fast to 62 km/h. Power is delivered from the same V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology developing 412 kW/560 hp and peak torque of 680 Newton metres (502 lb-ft).
The Z4 Roadster has been cosmetically enhanced recently and gets a bit more economical with the addition of the Z4 sDrive18i variant, which is powered by a 2-liter TwinPower 156 hp engine. Lastly, there’s the new Limited Edition Lifestyle equipment package for the BMW 1-Series Coupe and BMW 1-Series Convertible, which we’ve also covered in detail in a previous story.
