The 2013 Detroit autoshow is definitly the most important US autoshow, and BMW gave the enthusiasts a few notable that would appeal to us, namely the new BMW 4 Series Concept, the M6 Gran Coupe, the Z4 LCI and a new 320i. We snapped a few pictures of the 4 Series Coupe and the M6, take a look...

You can of course always find out more information on either of these cars through our official threads

This "gran coupe" thing is really stupid. It's either a two door coupe or it's a four door sedan. All the even numbers are suppose to be "coupes", but why have a 4 door coupe? Why not just make the M6 a two door coupe and an M7 a four door "gran coupe"(SEDAN).

Gran Coupe with four doors is like having a Mini Sedan with two doors, I don't get the point.

It's "sleeker" bla bla.

The 4 series will be a very sporty looking car on the road. Love the proportions, its got an aggressive stance. I'd say that is more masculine than the non M e92 was. Those lights look sharp and high tech. Whats really weird are the front and rear bumper details, though I'm certain that this element won't make production. Cant imagine how good this car will look once the M Division gets their hands on it.

The 4 looks amazing, but I feel like the front and rear bumpers lower fascias are a little too dramatic...............

Just show the production version already. We already know that the coolest details on the concept are not going to make it to production.

i think right off the bat, the wheels, front and rear bumpers, side view mirrors and possibly the details of the headlights/tail lights are simply CONCEPT

the real one will be toned down - but the greenhouse, hood, and trunk lines are pretty sweet and i imagine those will carry over unchanged...

There are many complex styling elements on the 4.

That stupid front hood line on the 4 is very distracting. Wish they had just followed the natural lines of the headlights and grills. :

Although you never know.
BMW is known for staying true to their concept.

believe it or not, this gran coupe is selling much more than the normal 2 door Coupe here in Dubai, the idea just works.

BMW should have released the M6 Gran Coupe along with the m5/M6 last year. It's now that with the competitors coming up with their solutions like CLS63s and RS6, this now looks less exciting.

When I was at BMW Welt I saw the 6 GranCoupe in person and I was shocked by how good the car looked and what a stance it had in real life. The M6 GC is no exception. And for me it looks way better than Audi's A7 and Merc CLS...

The 4 series is simply gorgeous! Although the final result will not be quite the same at least we know what the future holds for these cars in terms of design. I have a good feeling that the M4 will have even more success that the e92 M3.

It's true that the front bumper of the BMW 4-series looks like the new Mercredes E63...
