before the prompt arrival of brand new 2-series coupé, BMW gave a launch-pad to its newest version that would change the way things happened forever. If we talk of the 1600 two-door saloon, that was brought forth in the year 1966, and then the successive 2002 range with their New Class (Neue Klasse, in German)greenhouse chalets, fanatical performance and marvelous sports handling, it would be sufficient define completely newer generation of BMW, and a fleet of cars that were the ‘sole inspiration’ for the everlastingly new 2-series coupé. “The similarity is the concept,” utters Christopher Wehner, product manager for BMW’s small cars, “compact proportions, low weight and good performance.”
The new car product is unmatched as this petite two-plus-two, rear-drive coupé, has no comparison, everything else might be larger or smaller, with a front wheel or a four-wheel drive. Quite absolutely stunning was the 2-series with M235i in particular that was tried and tested, in to BMW’s new Welt of model however, the naming is slightly complicated.Photo 2: BMW reveals 4-series Gran Coupe: making debut at Geneva motor show

Therefore, 1-series car-body configuration with a rear door that swings upward to make the cargo area accessible. Hatchbacks may feature fold-down second row hatchback begat 2-series coupé and so forth. As far as the history of these pocketed rocket BMWs goes, with the hatchback 1-series launched in 2004, re-launched in 2011 and having its own, coupé version, which 2-series is now met morphed into new one. As remembered till this date a 6,000-strong limited edition of that 1-series coupé was made available. Along with the M Coupé, a gingerly-developed a new version of the 1-series hatchback, the M135i, were both engineered BMWs while the M version of the 2-series was being developed.
With the new revelation comes the BMW’s new 4-series Gran Coupé, a five-door version of its two-door 4-series, that happens to be a two-door version of the four-door 3-series. Are you keeping pace with the times? The 4-series Gran Coupé is intended to be a scaled-down take on the 6-series bearing the same name and, as per BMW, it is ‘the first four-door coupé in the premium midsize class’, it joins the 4-series Coupé and Cabriolet, and could be a rival for Audi’s A5.
