11 April 2014 – The arrival of the all-new BMW M4 Convertible sees the M Group making another alluring addition to its legendary high-performance sports car line-up. The sporty convertible replicates the performance figures of the all-new BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe, but emphasises its stylish and distinctive appearance through its individual character. Placing the fascination of sporty and dynamic open-top driving at centre stage, the new model finds BMW M Group drawing inspiration from a long tradition of high-performance sports cars for the track and the road.
The BMW M4 Convertible shares the elegant lines of its open-top 4 Series siblings. Its design language allows it to skilfully blend a distinctive and graceful silhouette, boasting finely balanced proportions when the roof is open with an exceptionally dynamic coupe line with the hardtop closed. At the same time, the M4 Convertible’s styling cues – including a signature power dome for the bonnet, eye-catching exterior mirrors in twinstalk style and flared front and rear wheel arches bulging over forged lightalloy wheels in 18-inch format – all identify it clearly as a member of the BMW M3/M4 model family.
The three-section folding metal roof of the BMW M4 Convertible has full interior lining and represents a compelling proposition with its excellent soundproofing and winter-proof construction. The roof opens at the touch of a button in under 20 seconds – while travelling at up to 18 km/h, if required.
Powering the sporty Convertible is the newly developed six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The high-revving power unit generates a maximum output of 431 hp from its 3.0-litre displacement and serves up a peak torque of 550 Newton metres (406 lb-ft) across a wide rev band. The BMW M4 Convertible therefore offers the driver exceptionally sporty performance attributes – the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 4.4 seconds (with the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission) – and sufficient reserves of power to cruise along in relaxed but rapid style with the roof down.
Like the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe, the BMW M4 Convertible also displays a strict adherence to the intelligent lightweight construction principle. For example, the bonnet and front side panels are made from aluminium, as are many components of the high-performance chassis. Added to which, ultra-lightweight and – thanks to its hugely impressive rigidity –extremely durable carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) is employed in many areas of the new M4 Convertible.
Complementing its already extensive standard specification, the new BMW M4 Convertible can also be ordered with a wealth of attractive options to further enhance its aesthetic appeal, dynamic prowess and comfort levels. And for that distinctive personal touch, the exclusive BMW Individual range of equipment offers the prospect of a unique driving experience.
