BMW M4 Convertible Now Nearly Naked in Snow Testing

Out for winter spinning in Scandinavia, the topless M4 is spied again.

With the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe already fully unveiled andheaded for showrooms, the M4 Convertible is undergoing its last rounds oftesting before its official debut later this year. The hard-top convertible shouldadd about 500lbs to the coupe model's weights. We expect it to be displayed atthe March Geneva Auto Show, where it will join the rest of the M family before shippingout to American shores.

The convertible will feature the company’s 3.0-litertwin-turbo six-cylinder engine, making 425 horsepower and 425 lb-ft of torque.A six-speed manual or seven-speed dual clutch transmission will send power tothe rear wheels. Zero-to-sixty times are expected to be just upwards of fourseconds, with top speeds of 155 mph. These numbers all represent significantimprovements from the previous generation, V-8-powered M3 convertible. Withmost of its camo shed, the car looks pretty much identical to its coupe twin,only with some slightly-awkward roof lines and pillar changes to accommodate thefolding hard top.
