BMW X4 M40i
The BMW X4 M40i made its big debut at the LA Auto Show in 2015, but the Sport Activity Coupe is gearing up to take NAIAS by storm. The new flagship model of the X4 line is a great example of engineering from the dedicated i line improving the rest of the BWW lineup.
BMW M2 Coupe
One of the big reveals of NAIAS belongs to the BMW M2 Coupe, which is set to be unveiled by BMW M GmbH. The M TwinPower Turbo under the M2’s hood is hoping to help blow all performance expectations out of the water. The compact sports car will reach peak torque of 343 lb ft that can be given a quick jump to 369 lb ft with overboost.
