What looks like a BMW 3 series GT in full cammo in these photos is in fact the latest model in the BMW 3/4 series lineup, the 4 series GranCoupe. After looking closely we first notice the lower front end that looks to be the same as on the 4 series coupe and convertible prototypes we have seen before. The roof line is also lower and the trunk looks different.
The 4GC features the lowest and sleekest roofline, followed by the slightly taller F30 sedan, and then the GT. The 4GC will also add some centimeters in its overall length compared to the F30 sedan.
Codenamed as the F36, the 4 Series Gran Coupe will top the 3-Series/4-Series range just as the 6 Series Gran Coupe does for the 5-Series/6-Series range. Like the 6 Series Gran Coupe, it will be the flagship of the non-M series line for the 3/4-Series lineup and will be priced accordingly.
Like the 6 Series Gran Coupe, the 4 Series Gran Coupe combines the convenience of 4 doors (and larger rear passenger cabin) with the sleek roofline and silhouette of a coupe. It will share the upcoming 4 Series Coupe (F32)’s overall styling, just as the 6 Series Gran Coupe shares with its coupe counterpart.
The 4 Series coupe recently revealed its kidney grille design which we will also see on the 4 Series Gran Coupe. It will also share the same engine offerings as the 4 Series coupe and convertible.
