In showrooms now, priced from $73,425.
Unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the BMW M4 Convertible is now starting to land in showrooms. To pique potential clients’ interest, the Bavarian carmaker has unleashed a huge batch of pictures and a couple of videos. BMW’s Individual department kitted out this particular model, using Moonstone metallic for the body paint, a set of gloss-black 19-inch alloys, and fine-grain Amaro Brown leather seats with piano black and black leather trim.
Like its siblings, the M4 Convertible is powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six that produces 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can choose either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, both of which send power to the rear wheels.
As is normally the case, the convertible is heavier than the coupe, specifically 3,530 lbs. vs. 4,055 lbs. That’s actually not all that bad and BMW is quick to point out that it managed to reduce the new car’s weight by 90 lbs. compared to the previous M3 convertible, the E93.
The new foldable hardtop is a three-piece unit that can be lowered in a mere 20 seconds at speeds up to 11 mph. 0-60 mph comes in at 4.2 seconds, top speed is limited to 155 mph, while the 2014 BMW M4 Cabrio starts from $73,425 in the US.
