It seems that this is indeed the BMW M4 concept

Several hours ago i posted here two pictures of the alleged M4 Concept, and it seems that is true. BMW has now officially revealed the car and also gave us some information about it. To begin with, this new sports car will be publicly revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance that starts in a few days.

We also saw confirmed the previous report about the carbon fiber reinforced plastic parts. The parts that were made with CFRP include the front splitter, the roof, and the rear diffuser, helping the car reduce weight.

A car like the M4 obviously has a more aggressive exterior, so it features a new front bumper with a splitter, and rear bumper with a diffuser, two-tone 20-inch alloy wheels, and rear spoiler lip for increased downforce. All of this is painted in a special "Aurum Dust" color.

On the mechanical part, BMW only revealed it fitted the car with carbon ceramic brakes. As for the engine we can only speculate. Rumors point to twin-turbo straight 6 with around 450PS (444bhp or 331kW) and 500Nm (369lb/ft). That will have to wait.
