BMW M4 Convertible Spied After Being Invisible For A Long Time
The long-awaited BMW M3 and M4 are all set to debut this month. We have a lot of information about the two Bimmer compact combos – we even know that the M3 will debut in the Isle of Man color green, while the M4 will welcome the world in Sao Paolo Yellow.
But what we don’t know is whether the M4 Convertible will also debut the two hottest versions of the 3 and 4 Series. We haven’t seen the M4 Convertible in a long time – with the initial appearance of the convertible with soft top now more than a year ago.
This is changing today.
Spotted by our spy photographer, the M4 drop-top flaunts its wrapped body while resting with other Bimmer prototypes. Although still relatively concealed, this prototype M4 Cabrio is more exposed than what we saw previously last year, showing much of its body panels. What interests us, however, is the new wheel set on the prototype – a unique set in our eyes and a departure from the usual blackened rims on the M4.
But then again, with a massive soft top and grille topping the list of changes in the M4 Cabriolet, a new set of wheels isn’t much of a surprise after all.
As mentioned, it is still unconfirmed whether the M4 softtop convertible will make its world debut with the M3 and M4 on September 23. with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine inside its hood.
In terms of horsepower, the standard version produces 473 horsepower (353 kilowatts) mated to a six-speed manual, while the Competition variant produces 503 horsepower (375 kW) and uses an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive versions will be introduced first, all-wheel-drive counterparts will follow a little later.
