Should the rumours end up being true, the BMW M4 Coupe (shown in the provided image in concept car form) may be making its video game debut in Gran Turismo 6 as early as December 12th this year.
According to a report by BMWBlog, the German car manufacturer will coincide the reveal of the all-new BMW M3 and M4 models this Thursday, with the announcement set to coincide with the M4 Coupe being made available in Gran Turismo 6 as a free digital download, as confirmed last week at the Gran Turismo 6 launch event in the Spanish city of Ronda.
Whilst these reports are still purely speculative at time of writing, there is the possibility they are based in fact: despite the M3 Saloon and M4 Coupe models being slated for a global debut at next month's Detroit Auto Show, it isn't uncommon for car manufacturers to release cars several days and even weeks before their projected unveiling dates.
That said, there's been no official confirmation from BMW or Sony Computer Entertainment on this indeed being the case, with no officially verified batch of videos or images seemingly being distributed prior to the unveiling of what are arguably two of the most highly anticipated new performance cars.
We'll be keeping this story updated should more information arise – and posting an entirely new article should Grant Turismo 6 end up welcoming the BMW M4 Coupe in the coming days – so do keep checking back to the Team VVV news page for the latest racing game news and announcements.
