This year’s Detroit Motor Show is so chock-full of amazing new models hot out of the oven that BMW’s lineup got kinda obscured in the background. They turned up with an interesting group of cars, including the new 4 Series Coupe making its show debut, the M6 Gran Coupe, the latest Z4 and a new 320i edition of the 3-Series F30.
The 4 Series, which replaces the 3 Series Coupe in the range, showed up in Detroit to prove it looks much better in the flesh than in the pictures and videos. This is a very important car, seeing as it will be the base for the next M3.
The new 320i is for those who want something more efficient than the 328i and are ready to compromise on performance. The 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine in this car develops 180 bhp (134 kW) and 200 lb-ft (271 Nm) of torque, and returns up to 34 mpg.
The M6 Gran Coupe, which you are definitely familiar with, is the ultimate version of the ultimate version of the 6-Series, boasting a 4.4 liter biturbo V8 engine developing 560 hp and 680 Nm of torque. U.S. market launch is planned for Summer 2013.
Finally, the new Z4 which features some slight modifications with revised headlights and bumpers, and new 17-inch and 18-inch light-alloy wheels as well as the optional M Sport package. There is also a new Z4 sDrive18i variant, powered by a 2.0-litre engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology developing 115 kW/156 hp.
