Correct me if I am wrong, but I think on minute 5:33 of this video they show partial images of the 4 Series Gran Coupe, at least in prototype form. If it is, it does look very promising. I will gladly step down from the 5 series I have to an M4 Gran Coupe.

I had the chance to realize an awesome interview with Karim for an international fashion magazine I work for... I also did another interview with Julian Blasi, the Z4 designer. It was a blast.

I'll ask for permission to make that interview available to you guys here at bimmerpost... Hope BMW will give me the green light!

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Glad to see Karim Habib from some Lebanese roots be one of the best crew members at BMW.
