For once, that grille isn't the center of attention.
Much has been written about the all-new BMW M3 and M4 and, unlike in years gone by, the conversation has had little to do with their performance capabilities. That giant vertical grille is what has grabbed the headlines, and mostly for the wrong reasons.
Many have shown off their interpretations of the M twins with a more traditional grille, but the latest M4 concept is unlike any other M car we've seen. What you're looking at is pretty much a high-riding M4 Coupe transformed into a rather convincing overlander. The closest 4 Series concept we can think of is this luxury pickup truck.
According to the post, this bizarre M4 is "ready for anything" and comes equipped with a kitchenette, two solar panels, and a bed for prospective buyers from which they can contemplate their strange life choices into the early hours of the morning.
The chunky off-road tires and wider body are truly something to behold, while the mini camper van compartment tacked onto the rear end finally steals some attention away from the grille. Not much of the stock M4 remains other than the headlights and the quad-exit tailpipes. There are no illustrations of what it looks like inside.
A few years ago, someone transformed a first-gen BMW X5 into a rugged off-roader, but at least that creation used an SUV as a base, not a high-performance coupe. As comical as it looks, this crazy BMW would certainly leave Land Rovers eating its dust considering that the new M3 and M4 come with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six producing 473 horsepower and 503 hp in Competition guise.
Although this is a concept that answers a question that nobody asked, it's one of the most unique interpretations of the M4 we've seen and accomplishes the rare feat of making those grilles seem almost tame.
