Is this BMW M4 Overlander the most intriguing concept you'll see this week?
Finally, something that draws your attention from that monstrous grille.
Ever since BMW released the new M3 and M4, we haven’t been able to move past that face. And there’s a good reason for it - those unusually large nostrils, which would’ve worked if it was on a monster truck rather than a low slung sports car.
However, a graphic designer called BradBuilds has managed to get past the anomaly and answered an essential question that no one asked - would the new M4 be a good overlander? While his render certainly helps provide some shape to our wild imaginations, the description beneath it delivers reasoning for the same.
The designer claims, this M4 Overlander Concept is a ready-for-anything build. Majorly due to the mini camper van that replaces the M4’s rear seats and boot. Instead, it furnishes the owner with a bed, a kitchenette and two solar panels because global warming. Sadly, it will be difficult to ascertain the usability to any of these as no renders feature the interiors of the campervan.
And if wasn’t for the widebody stance and those chunky off-road tires that give an all-out off-roader impression already, the nomadic equipment certainly adds to the overlander appeal. But most importantly, these elements really draws the attention away from that monstrous grille, and that’s a feat in itself.
While ideally, overlander concepts comprise of an SUV as the base car, but the designer felt ‘something different would be nice’. Hence, he opted for BMW’s latest high-performance coupe with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline-six producing 473hp. With such vast reserves of power in hand, I wouldn’t want to go through the wilderness at 5mph. Instead, how about rallying?
