[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.

Other than that, the differences to the new M3 sedan and especially the M4 coupe sibling are quasi inexistent.

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).
