Introducing the 2015 BMW M4 Convertible, The drop-top to accompany the Geman automaker’s 4-series M model. You’re getting everything we’re loving about the M4 but with that retractable hard top we saw on the outgoing M3 Coupe (E93) model. Like it’s coupe brethren, the M4 Convertible gets a 3.0-liter, 425-horsepower, 406-pound-foot, twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine that’s mated to either a six-speed manual or BMW’s iconic seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission. The aggressive body looks great here though like the E93, this convertible also adds on more weight than the coupe. The M4 with a six-speed manual comes in at 3,530 pounds while the M4 Convertible weighs 4,055 pounds. That’s a price folks that want to drop the top in 20 seconds with the push of a button are willing to pay.
Inside the cabin, the M4 Convertible is fitted with a ton of M-specific detailings including M door sill finishers, an M driver’s footrest, M gearshift lever, M-design circular instruments with white graphics, M leather steering wheel with chrome trim, color contrast stitching as well as electroplated-look shift paddles when buyers opt for the M-DCT gearbox. The M sports seats feature the BMW M logo on the seat backrests for the first time and really enhance the cockpit.
Look for the 2015 BMW M4 Convertible to make its debut at the New York Auto Show while the car hits showrooms this summer.
