High Performance with Street Credibility.


Unique interior and exterior look - the BMW M4 Competition Coupé x KITH is the impressive result of the perfect fusion of a demanding world of fashion and high performance.

Created in close cooperation between BMW M and designer Ronnie Fieg from the legendary New York lifestyle label KITH, the Coupé combines strength, passion and street credibility in an inimitable way. Starting with the interior which is artistically incorporated with the KITH logos and lettering, the optional KITH carbon roof and a co-branding emblem instead of the blue and white BMW trademark on the hood. The BMW and BMW M logos have been redesfinitioned for the first time in history and redesigned by KITH. The BMW M TwinPower in-line 6-cylinder engine makes the limited edition model, which is limited to 150 units, a true powerhouse.

We now present the BMW M4 Competition Coupé x KITH in M Town at BMW Welt. 

The design thinking process – does it really differ when designing fashion or designing cars? In their designer talk, Ronnie Fieg from urban streetwear brand KITH and Anne Forschner from BMW compare notes and talk about the hyped BMW x KITH collaboration.

Fuel Consumptions and CO² emissions.

BMW M4 Competition Coupé:

Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 10,2
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 234


The illustrations show optional equipment.

The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]

The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
