Only 300 examples of the BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre are being produced.
30 years ago, in the summer of 1988, BMW’s performance M division created the first ever convertible M3 giving motorsport fans an open-air driving experience in a sports car designed for everyday use, but with a race-derived engine and suspension. Now, the Bavarian automaker is commemorating the 30th anniversary of its first droptop M car with the launch of the limited edition BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre. Limited to just 300 examples, the high performance convertible is available in two exclusive colors.
The Maceo Blue finish is inspired by the original open-top M3, while the other option, Mandarin II uni, is a nod to the Darkar Yellow finish that was available for the second-gen M3 convertible. Further distinguishing the M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre is a unique exterior with BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line trim on the grille, side vents and M4 badges. The potent convertible rides on model-exclusive 20-inch wheels finished in matte Orbit Grey. Inside, the interior of the M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre features Merion full leather trim with a color scheme matching the chosen exterior finish.
In addition to the exterior colors, there is a choice of two-tone color combinations including Black/Fjord Blue and Black/Silverstone, as well as unique contrast stitching on the headrests and M floor mats, carbon fiber trim and “30 Jahre Edition” lettering imprinted on the doorsills and headrests. There is also an individually numbered badge on the interior trim strip on the passenger side dashboard. As standard, the BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre is equipped with the M Competition Package, which includes an assortment of M goodies such as a sport exhaust system, adaptive suspension, and an active differential.
Under the hood, the M4 Convertible’s biturbo inline-six 3.0-liter engine has been tuned to produce 450 horsepower as part of the package. No pricing details have been revealed yet, and it isn’t known if the limited edition convertible will be sold in the US.
