BMW gives drop-top M4 some last-minute testing ahead of its unveiling in NYC.
Spied virtually undisguised as the carmaker put it through some last-minute testing at the Nurburgring, the BMW M4 Convertible looks ready for its public debut at next month’s New York Auto Show. Equipped with a folding hard top, the M4 Convertible will come with the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine found in the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe with 431 horsepower and 406 pond-feet of torque on tap.
Expect the heavier cabriolet to be slower than the M4 Coupe’s 4.1-second sprint to 62 mph. Transmission choices will include the standard six-speed manual and optional seven-speed M DCT when the 2014 BMW M4 Convertible goes on sale in the latter half of the year.
