2015 BMW M4 Convertible
BMW has announced the convertible version of its all-new M4 coupe, the M4 Convertible.
Like the M4, BMW has ditched its predecessor’s V8 engine for a more powerful turbocharged 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder that produces a total of 420 horsepower. The new M4 Convertible weighs quite a bit more than the M4 Coupe (3,858 pounds, a gain of 557.7 pounds) and performance takes a tiny bit of a hit as a trade-off for feeling in the wind in your hair. With a six-speed manual, the car will do 0-to-60mph in 4.4 seconds and in just 4.2 seconds with the 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission.
The three-section folding metal roof opens with a single touch of a button in under 20 seconds at speeds up to 11 mph. The M4 convertible also has BMW’s M-spec Adaptive Suspension, 19-inch M-light alloy wheels and the “powerdome” hood.
