BMW M4 Competition Coupe Design
Bimmer fans and enthusiasts alike will appreciate the design language of the M4, even if it does sport a controversial face thanks to those kidneys. Gorgeous or otherwise, is for you to decide but it certainly looks striking in the Sao Paulo Yellow! The M forged double-spoke style alloy wheels receive different colour options as well, and are shod on 19-inch tyres at the front and 20-inchers at the rear. The fins, exhaust pipes, and rear spoiler are finished in dark chrome, while the ORVMs receive a shade of High Gloss Black. You would obviously want to show off your car, but you’ll find the M4 Competition badging on just the tailgate and on the grille.
