Tuned BMW M4 Coupe Goes for a Salmon Look, Someone Should Fillet It

As long as they don't have many inches between their bellies and the road (with a few exceptions), BMW M's models have always been great driver's cars. This applies to the entire low-slung series, including the latest generation M4 Coupe.

But why mention this ride in particular? The answer lies in the gallery above, and it is one very controversial example. We know what you're probably thinking: that Mansory signed it or Keyvany. But it is the work of a lesser-known tuner that goes by the name of DarwinPRO Aerodynamics.

Based in the United States, with branches nationwide and in other countries, the company took a closer look at the new-gen BMW M4 Coupe and decided it needs a flashy exterior color and numerous carbon fiber add-ons. Either that or it was commissioned by one of their clients. The reason behind maiming it is not important at all, as what matters is that they have done just that.

The thing that stands out the most is the salon pink color, which is probably a wrap. The premium compact sports coupe has a few blacked-out elements, retains the original double-coffin grille, and sends M4 CSL vibes with the yellow DRLs. The hood is new, it has a tweaked front bumper with side flicks and an apron, sports side skirt attachments, a new rear diffuser with a motorsport-like integrated brake light, and a large wing mounted on the trunk lid.

As you have likely noticed, fender flares were part of the controversial makeover. We are also not fans of the dual-shade alloys with wide lips that appear to have been the work of BBS, as they'd be a better fit to something more retro and not a modern-day M4 with a flashy body kit and a color that'd make it feel at home in a restaurant's kitchen as the chef is getting ready to fillet it. The extra tinted windows prevent us from seeing the interior, but it has probably remained stock, or that's what we think, anyway.

The hashtags in the social media post that brought these images to our attention reveal that it is an M4 Competition Coupe. Therefore, it had 503 horsepower produced by its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six gasoline lump when it rolled off the assembly line, and chances are it retains the original output.

A stock model takes 3.8 seconds to hit the 60 mph (97 kph) mark from rest, and this one should be just as fast, assuming its internals carry over with no modifications. The xDrive variant, which has an identical output, is four-tenths faster to sixty, and the entry-level M4 Coupe needs 4.1 seconds for the sprint, aided by the 473 hp produced by the motor.
