A “charged” BMW M4 convertible spotted at the Nurburgring

A “charged” BMW M4 convertible spotted at the Nurburgring

Auto publications have published photos of tests of a camouflaged prototype of the new BMW M4 in a convertible body. The high-performance novelty was spotted at the Nürburgring race track.

Since we’ve seen the M4 Coupe and 4 Series Convertible before, it’s not hard to imagine what a more powerful variant of the latter would look like. The profiles of these vehicles are likely to be very similar.

The prototype of the novelty was seen at the Nürburgring race track.

It is reported that under the hood of the BMW M4 convertible will be the same engine that is equipped with this model in the coupe version. It is a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder twin-turbo engine with 473 hp. (550 Nm).

The more powerful Competition version will be able to boast an additional 30 hp. (98 Nm), which will be transmitted to all four wheels thanks to the “smart” BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system. The latter can “turn off the front wheels” and send all the power to the rear wheels. The powerful convertible in the Competition version will only be offered with an automatic transmission. And the usual version of the novelty can be purchased with “mechanics”.

Since the M4 Coupe starts at $ 71,800 and the Competition version costs $ 2,900 more, a charged M4 convertible is likely to cost even more. This is definitely an argument for the M440i xDrive Convertible, which starts at $ 66,000. This version of the machine comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine and a mild hybrid system that develops a total of 382 hp. (500 Nm).
