The new BMW M4 but with E30 M3 styling

It’s only a Photoshop edit, but if made real – this would be quite the spectacle.

The E30 is the grandfather of the M3. With a 2.3 litre four-cylinder engine, the car produced a lively 143kW of power, which linked to a 5-speed manual and rear-wheel limited slip differential became an icon for the petrolhead.

The new G82 M4 on the other hand hasn’t been received so well. It’s the latest performance coupe to join the M car range, and to many, the design has taken a back-step with the larger kidney grille and omission of the traditional Hofmeister kink.

Playing around with Photoshop, we have managed to tack the E30’s front bumper, multi-spoke wheels and spoiler onto the latest G82’s chassis, resulting in a rather unusual muscular looking car. The Photoshop edit does have colour matching issues and thus may not be perfect, but we think it gives us an interesting glimpse into mixing contemporary and classic design.
