This just goes to show you that the new M4 coupe has some really big shoes to fill. This prototype was spotted recently on German roads, hidden under plenty of camouflage.

Even though most of the body is hidden, we can still tell it's an M4 because the bonnet has a bulge in the bonnet, signaling its impressive power.

Rather than going toe to toe with the C63 AMG in terms of power, BMW has decided to go a completely different route. The new M4 coupe is supposed to be much lighter than the E92 M3 Coupe, reportedly targeting the weight of the old E46 M3.

All new M cars in the mast few years have been launched with only slight power increases, but better economy. This is also going to be the case with this compact coupe. BMW will replace the 4-liter V8 with a new engine called the S55. This displaces 3 liters and produces 422 PS and (415bhp) and about 395 lb-ft of torque (535 Nm) of torque.

With this added power and a lighter chassis, the M4 will probably reach 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. Top speed will of course be restricted, but owners can look forward to 20% improvements in fuel economy.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
