The Rendering of the BMW M440i Most Wanted Has Need For Speed Written All Over It
The BMW 4 Series would look cool in Need for Speed: Most Wantedby Ciprian Florea, on
Still not a fan of the latest 4 Series? Is that big kidney grille annoying? Well, maybe this rendering from X-Tomi Design will change your mind. Although it retains the 4 Series’ main features, including the controversial grille, it adds a new spin with add-ons and a livery inspired by the already legendary Need for Speed: Most Wanted video game.
The cool thing about the first installment of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005), apart from being able to race some outstanding cars, was that you were also able to mod them.
This feature was also available in the second game, introduced in 2012. Need for Speed came with an extensive list of mods. You could alter bumpers and fenders, lower the car, add new wheels and big rear wings. You could also repaint the car in all sorts of crazy liveries.
This rendering showcases just that. The M440i, the sportiest 4 Series trim as of 2020, was lowered, fitted with low-profile tires, and modified into a full-fledged drifter. There’s a more aggressive bumper with a big splitter and winglets on the sides, widened fenders, and a massive grille atop the trunk lid. It also boasts a somewhat psychedelic livery that combines light grey with bright blue, both colors featuring a chrome tint.

It’s the kind of car Ken Block would use to film a new Gymkhana video.
