Shocking absolutely no one: the new BMW 4-series coupe looks outstanding in motion!
The latest track images from BMW show the 435i in silver, with dozens of images of the coupes racing around a compact track.
The beauty and stance of the BMW coupe has never been in question. It is simply a hot, hot car. If any friend of yours has one, you know that it draws in envious stares at every stop light.
Even other BMW drivers wish their car were a 435i coupe.
But when launched, the 428i and 435i Coupes did not receive the rapturous reception deserved of this benchmark sports car. The styling is complex, and highly variable by trim level.
Overall, the new nose is defined by a plunging hoodline – accentuating the rear-drive proportions of this coupe even more.
Complex surfaces form the grille and swooping lights, while the lower chin spoiler and bumper is totally unique versus the 335i sedan.
Flowing and encircling the lower fog-lamps, the chin spoiler looks great up close and in action.
For buyers, this coupe is a dream. Coming in 428i or 435i engines, with xDrive optional, and a choice between the excellent eight-speed automatic or a snicky six-speed manual for every combination.

The M Sport package brings a much nicer steering wheel with tiny spokes and really cool shift paddles, but avoid the optional Sports wheel that looks pregnant with twin airbags. It is very wide in the center like the previous M5.
Estoril Blue is a gorgeous new color and is only offered on the M Sport trim line, so will be quite rare on the roads.
With everything I could want set into the BMW Configurator, my 435i M Sport rang in at about $54,000.
