This Is The Next Best Thing To A BMW M4 Gran Coupe

For Sale

Would you be tempted to have this over a BMW M3?

If you’re looking for a fast four-door BMW M series, both the M3 and the all-new M5 have you covered. If, however, you’re looking for a fast four-door BMW 4 Series, you may want to consider this creation by BMW Abu Dhabi which is the closest you’re likely to get to a BMW M4 Gran Coupe. Based on the 440i Gran Coupe, BMW Abu Dhabi has spiced up the 4 Series with a sporty M Performance body kit, resulting in a tempting alternative to the M3.

It’s also finished in a striking Snapper Rocks Blue, which was introduced in the facelifted BMW 4 Series range. The standard BMW 440i Gran Coupe is powered by a 3.0-liter engine that sends 320 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, allowing the four-door sedan to accelerate to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds. If that already sounds impressive, the M Performance Power kit, available for all versions of the 440i including the Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe, increases the power to 355 hp and 369 lb-ft torque thanks to some ECU tuning, a new intake and exhaust.

That said, BMW Abu Dhabi hasn’t specified if this 440i has been fitted with the M Performance Power kit. What is evident is a range of M Performance visual and aerodynamic add-ons. Up front, the distinctive M Performance grille is instantly recognizable in gloss black along with a carbon fiber air splitter at the bottom of the M Sport bumper. It also rides on M Performance 21 inch wheels and features various M Performance badges and side sills. There are also carbon fiber mirror covers, while the trunk sports a carbon fiber spoiler and the rear bumper is fitted with a carbon fiber diffuser to complement the Akrapovic exhaust tips.

Inside, the 440i’s interior has been upgraded with an Alcantara M Performance steering wheel, but is otherwise unchanged. No price has been given, but the 440i Gran Coupe starts at $48,300 so expect this M Performance version to cost considerably more.
