Naaa it's sapphire black, saw him recently driving around here.
It's a BMW employee and tbh I don't even know if he is allowed to drive around like that all the time...
But who cares

*edit*

Me neither. In the video it looks more like black sapphire metallic or a dark grey but in the screen capture it looks like blue undertones. I love the color in the screen capture.

Definitely, itís the reflections from the gas station that causes the blue undertones

Thumbnail is highly edited, car is even lowered on it.

Funny detail, car has "Factory test vehicle" = Werkstestwagen on the rear…so officially a BMW HQ car.

But nice to see one just in the wild…they're coming

That's not a flattering picture.

Mean and aggressive, with a decent touch of premium. Love it! In my opinion, that grille looks super cool on the all-black version.

The window line going upwards in the rear quarter panels is so un-BMW that it just kills this M4.

"beauty is in the eye of the beholder", Margaret Wolfe Hungerford.

EDIT:
Don't get me wrong - I love the specs on the car (Astonishing) but the design is not for me and I'm sure most would agree. THAT GRILL IS ALL I COULD SEE! It's like approaching a pretty girl until she opens her mouth exposing her jacked up crooked teeth 🦷

This car definitely looks aggressive and has some good angles to it. At the same time, the side profile is not BMW like, even more pronounced than the 8 series. This will be a polarizing design and in 10 years we will know if it ages well....I am not a fan of this new design language. The other and more important question is how the car drives and feels, but for now I will just wait and see how this car will do over the next years.

The new design language is starting to grow on me; I doubt I'll give it a second thought as time goes on. I do want to drive one of these bad boys ASAP!

Feel like black hides too much, is nice to see it somewhere other than a showroom and at night though! Thanks for this.

Definitely not. Has to be Black Sapphire. You would get a very noticeable blue hue on Tanzanite, which is not present here.
