Fan-created BMW M4 to showcase customisation options at Festival of Speed, includes new aero package and upgraded interior

A special version of the new BMW M4 coupé will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

Described as the first M4 model to be built under BMW's Individual customisation programme, the bespoke M4 will come with blue metallic paint and features a leather interior chosen from the firm's Individual collection. 

BMW has yet to release pictures of the new model, but the car will also showcase components from its new M Performance Accessories range, which goes on sale in September. The bespoke M4 comes with a new carbonfibre front splitter and rear spoiler, as well as a new diffuser and wing mirrors. There's also an M Performance sports exhaust, while the cabin gets a new Alcantara-clad steering wheel and a 'race display'.

The car's specification was chosen via a competition on Pistonheads, and two fans will be driven in the car as it makes its dynamic debut on the Goodwood hill circuit as part of Thursday's Moving Motor Show. It will also be driven by Tiff Needell over the course of the Festival of Speed.

Our Verdict


New name, new engine and two turbos and even a much needed facelift, the main question lingers - can the BMW M4 grab the initiative off of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé
