BMW is proud to introduce the first ever M4 Convertible which will be shown in the metal this month at the New York Auto Show. It looks a lot like the coupe but obviously adopts a retractable hard top that can be electronically operated at speeds of up to 11 mph (18 km/h). Raising or lowering the roof takes around 20 seconds while inside the cabin it looks basically the same as the coupe, with M-branded sill plates and gearshift, along with a sports steering wheel covered in leather and sport seats.
At its heart is a 6-cylinder, 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine outputting 425 bhp and 550 Nm of torque which is enough to enable the hot cabrio to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.2 seconds when equipped with the optional 7-speed M dual-clutch gearbox. With the standard 6-speed manual, the car will do the sprint in 4.4 seconds. Both versions will be able to reach an electronically-capped top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
