Now while many have responded caustically to BMW's new found affection for niche hunting, one thing is abundantly clear. They have certainly returned to their more stylish roots after the dark days of the Bangle.
3 series bones, 4 series flash, plus a few more curves, whats a call girl to a street walker? Naturally the proletariat have begun to wonder why BMW is answering questions that no one is asking, to answer rhetorically, HAVE YOU LOOKED AT THE THING?
Ok the attention deficient have had a rough go of keeping up with the speed of progress, "how can they have a 4 door 4 series if the 4 series is supposed to be the two door 3 series?" Good observation, now sit down before your brain begins to bubble, this is the 4 series GRAN COUPE, GRAN as in MOAR, more as in more than 2, hence 4 doors, sleek style and substantial standard equipment.
Besides why are you complaining, what other marquee do you know that will offer you a RWD turbocharged family sedan with a manual? Oh Audi, HM, you're right, but in response I'll shout STRAIGHT 6. An efficient one at that too, the N55 is pegged at 7.6L/100KM or 30 miles per gallon while still offering power equal to 300 horses and torque that twists at 300 ft-lbs.
Naturally the biggest threat to the success of the 4 series Gran Coupe is another BMW, for some reason I think that's just what BMW wanted...
