BMW has officially pulled off the wraps from the new 2015 M4 Convertible ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show.
The M4 convertible will appeal to buyers who want to feel the cool breeze in their hair. Akin to its Coupe sibling, the M4 Convertible adopts an aggressive exterior with muscular styling. The most noticeable difference is the power retractable hard top which can be lowered in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 11 mph (18 km/h).
The familiar styling continues in the cabin as the model is virtually identical to the coupe. On the interior, the car sports a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and sport seats which promise to be comfortable and supportive. Other bits include contrast stitching, an M gearshift and M-branded sill plates.
Similar to the M4 Coupe, the convertible version is powered by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 425 bhp (317 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque. These 425 horses enables the car to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds with the help of the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission and 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds with the standard six-speed manual. Regardless of which transmission is selected, the M4 Convertible has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km).
Coming to the performance aspect of the car, the M4 convertible is equipped with an Active M Differential, M compound brakes and an M-tuned electromechanical steering system. Optional gadgetary include an Adaptive M suspension (with COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes) and M carbon ceramic brakes with gold-painted calipers.
The M4 Convertible will go on sale in the United States this summer and pricing will be announced closer to launch. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more dope on the 2015 BMW M4 Convertible.
