Debuts later this year

BMW's highly-anticipated 4-Series Coupe has been caught undisguised during a photo shoot.

Looking virtually identical to the concept that debuted at the North American International Auto Show, the production model closely resembles the 3-Series but is distinguished by a revised front fascia, ventilated front fenders and new taillights.

At launch, the model is expected to be offered with two different engines - a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder with 245 HP (180 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque as well as a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six with 306 HP (225 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The engines will be connected to a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Rear-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive could be optional.

The BMW 4-Series Coupe is slated to go into production in July, so expect to learn more in the coming months.

IMHO, the BMW Coupe is in the same class as the Audi A5, in terms of great design. What beautiful lines.

Did anybody else happen to see the 4-series being advertised on Channel 4 (UK) last night (friday night)? The car looks unreal!

Not much left from what made the concept special. That being said, I still take this one anytime over the 3 series "GT".

Nice...looks better than the concept car. Well done BMW. This looks like a true BMW.

My main concern from the concept was those tacky side vents behind the front wheels. Here it seems they toned it down a bit, hopefully that's the case.. I hope to see less chrome pieces not more...

I was actually looking forward to this, but at the end they made 3 series Coupe. They should've sticked with concept.

Best looking car in this segment although from the rear and 3/4 angle there are cues of the Audi A5 coupe. Nonetheless, puts the Mercedes C-class coupe to shame, which looks like a Honda Civic.

'cues of the Audi A5'... no offense, but are you on drugs or something? This looks nothing like the A5.. other than it has 2 doors as well.

Look at picture #1 and compare the tail lights to the A5 coupe. Also look at the rear beltline as it rises through the fuel filler lid and integrates into the rear tail-light. There's definitely a stylistic cue to the A5 there. Still a stunning looking car and better than the A5 though. And no, I'm not on drugs.

Amazing as expected, but I'm looking forward to 2 series even more.

Surprise surprise. Looks like a 3-series with 2 doors.

And the engine choices--2.0-liter I-4 turbo and 3.0-liter I-6 turbo--are exactly the same choices as the BMW 3-Series sedan. A 3-Series as a coupe is a perfect description of the 4-Series models. Now, if we can just talk BMW into offering their 2.0-liter I-4 turbodiesel engine into the new model....

korean, chinese and before them Japanese manufacturers keep openning european design centers, taking european designers and trying to make their cars like the "europeans" yet people talk like if it is the other way around and that just sounds ridiculous

It sounding ridiculous doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It's the automotive industry. Everyone copies everyone in some way or another. The front bumper on the 4-series concept looked ripped off from a Kia Optima.

These spy photographers these days got mad ninja skills. I do wish BMW kept that distinctive angel eyes of the concept model. Awesome anyways.

There are no Ninja skills, car manufacturers are intentionally leaking the photos, my assumption. It is a way of promotion: WOW new car caught, doing what a U-Turn.
