BMW M4 Convertible officially unveiled

BMW has officially pulled the wraps off the new M4 Convertible ahead of the model ahead of the model’s public debut which will take place during the 2014 New York Auto Show.

Following several spy shots which came around these past few month, the new BMW M4 Convertible has recently went official as the car manufacturer has unveiled it. The model in question is following the same footsteps of the M4 Coupe, adopting an aggressive exterior design, except for the power retractable hard top. This can be lowered in approximately 20 seconds, at speeds up to 18 km/h (11 mph), as the company is saying.

BMW says that the new M4 Convertible has an aluminum hood, aluminum front fender and the same material has been used for constructing the chassis. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic is also used on the model. Weight savings over the previous M3 Cabrio include approximately 40 percent, which is translated into a more dynamic powertrain response.

The same identical design is being found in the cabin too, as this is similar to its solid roof brother. Here we can find the sport seats, which promise to be supportive and comfortable, the leather wrapped sport steering wheel, an M gearshift, some contrast stitching and the M branded sill plates, along with several other tweaks which help it differentiate from the regular model.

The brand new BMW M4 Convertible is also getting some M compound brakes, the Active M Differential and the M tuned electromechanical steering system. options include the M carbon ceramic brakes, with the gold painted brake calipers, or the Adaptive M suspension system, which is offering three drive modes, the Comfort, the Sport and the Sport+.

Power to the BMW M4 Convertible is being provided by the same engine found on the M4 Coupe and on the new M3 Sedan, the 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine, which is rated at 425 HP (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) takes 4.2 seconds with the 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission and 4.4 seconds with the 6-speed manual. Top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), no matter what transmission is chosen. Prices for the car remain unknown for the moment.
