Journalists captured a test prototype of a Bavarian convertible was spotted at the German Nürburgring race track. The official presentation of the new product can be expected either at the end of this year, or at the beginning of the next.

To our great disappointment, the test machine is still completely covered with a significant layer of camouflage, which consists not only of film, but also of plastic panels in front, to hide the modified front part of the novelty. It is believed that the new items will receive some design elements from both the new Z4 Roadster and the flagship coupe of the 8th series.

The big news for everyone is the fact that the updated 4-series convertible will have a fabric roof instead of a hardtop that is equipped with the current version of this model.

Due to this, the total weight of the car will be less. Folding the hard top is a complicated procedure that requires more mechanical components and also takes up more storage space. The car will receive a BMW CLAR front wheel drive platform.

Despite the camouflage, which covered the observed prototype, you can see a few minor changes in the design of new items. In general, the exterior design of the 4-series convertible should look like a new generation 3-series sedan. As for when we finally see the serial version of the gig, so far nothing is known about this. After all, until now, the updated coupe 4 series has not been shown.

It is possible that the coupe will be presented this summer, so we can assume that the appearance of a version of the convertible can be expected at the end of this year, or perhaps at the beginning of next year.
