The famous twin kidney grille is in there as well, however it's essentially bigger than whatever else we find in showrooms. Furthermore, because of cooling necessities, there's no work grille or the typical vertical braces. 

Everything else is outline in light of dashing. The solid hood has monstrous vents, while the bumper are more extensive than common. Down underneath, the guard is for the most part made of colossal air vents, flanked by enormous LED lights at the corners. 

Onto the sides, we see the conventional BMW roadster lines, which as indicated by the Germans will persist unaltered on the generation.
