BMW 435i Fitted with BMW M Performance Upgrades

BMW fans will be able to get a glimpse of what the new M4 will look like at Pebble Beach next month in California. BMW reportedly plans to show off a 435i fitted with BMW M Performance upgrades that make it look very similar to the next generation M4.

The official unveiling for the M4 coupe and the M3 sedan will be next January. The M4 and M3 are expected to go on sale in the UK in the summer of 2014. BMW has said that the new M4 uses 80% different parts compared to the normal 435i.

The M4 will use a new modular engine, a seven-speed twin-clutch gear box, and an overhauled suspension. The new M4 will also use carbon fiber bodywork to help reduce weight. BMW has also previously announced that it will not offer an all-wheel-drive M4 because the all-wheel-drive system would add too much weight.
