We sneak behind the velvet rope at one of America’s most exclusive car meets…
Posted: 20 Aug 2013
Away from the seven-figure cars on show, the more modest but no less focussed BMW M4 Concept got it's first public outing. But that's pretty much all that happened. No technical information other than ‘Yes, it is nice isn't it?' was available from the company, so we have to rely on what we already know about the two-door M3 Coupe's successor.
The spokesperson's smile got tighter when I suggested it would have the S55 450bhp twin-turbo in-line six engine, but there was no telling what the interior would look like as the car on show clearly didn't have one. So we'll have to wait for the Detroit show in January to see the entire finished car. If it stays like this though, I can't see there being too many complaints. If ever a car said ‘thrash me hard', this is it.
