Is there some danger in moving the coupe version of the BMW’s vaunted 3-Series to a new nomenclature?
BMW pulled the cover off the 4-Series Concept Coupe today at the Detroit Auto Show.
Ian Robertson, member of BMW AG’s Board of Management, said the new car offers a new level of presence, elegance and dynamics.
“In designing the Concept 4 Series, we were determined to make a Coupe that stands above all others in its class,” Robertson said. “The result is an entirely new Coupe with more aesthetic differentiation and more product substance.
BMW’s 4-Series is the coupe counterpart to the 3-Series, just as the 6-Series is to the 5-Series and the 8 is to the 7. Apparently, in BMW-ese, even numbers signify two doors rather than four.
While BMW is calling the car it is showing at the North American International Auto Show a concept, the production version will likely be very close to the show car.
