[Videos] BMW releases huge gallery for the M4 Cabrio
The long-awaited M4 Cabrio is arriving quite late in the year, with the summer all but ready to make way to the autumn leaves. Still, BMW keeps our interest up with some new videos and a massive picture gallery.
There are no new details of the model – we already know everything about the open-top. So, here’s a small refresher to keep you company while you dive into the massive batch of pics and videos.
First off, since we’re dealing with the cabrio version of the 4 Series, the M4 features the three-section folding metal roof that needs 20 seconds for the open/close operations. Other than that, the differences to the new M3 sedan and especially the M4 coupe sibling are quasi inexistent. Under the hood resides the new 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine, roaring towards the rear wheels 425 bhp (317 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque via the six-speed manual or optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission.
The M4 Cabrio boasts impressive performance figures: 60 mph are reached in 4.2 seconds, the speed is as always electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h) and the fuel economy is of up to 32.5 mpg (8.7 liters/ 100 km).
