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?!?!?!?!
