Everybody loves leaked photos of cars that haven't even been unveiled yet, but sometimes they need a little explaining. In the middle is the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe, "Gran Coupe" being BMW-ese for "swoopy looking sedan."

First, BMW made the 3-Series sedan, and based on that there's a 3-Series GT awkward hatchback thing, the 4-Series coupe, the 4-Series convertible, and now this: the 4-Series Gran Coupe. The idea of it is a little weird, but the execution is quite nice, and if it retains the 4-Series' sharper driving dynamics when compared to the 3-series, we think it will be fantastic. Of course, it's still completely redundant, but we think it might be the best of the three nearly identical cars.
