Tuning studio Barracuda has unveiled its upgrade kit for the Bavarian BMW M4 convertible. The car received increased engine power / torque, as well as a redesigned appearance.

The new generation of BMW’s high-performance M3 sedan and M4 coupe were unveiled on the 23rd of this month, but the debut of the M4 in a convertible version will apparently have to wait a few more months. To ease the waiting time for the highly anticipated new product, Barracuda and its partners from the Cardiologie team have presented several additional updates to the current model.

The most important change concerns the 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder twin turbocharged engine.

By choosing the Stage 1 upgrade level, buyers will get an increase in engine power from 425 to 513 hp, as well as torque from 550 to 680 Nm, respectively.

The top speed limiter has been removed, allowing the M4 convertible to reach a top speed of over 300 km / h. There is no indication of how long it will take to sprint from 0 to 100 km / h, but the standard open-top M4 took 4.4 seconds.

The car received a set of wheels from the Barracuda studio – front disks measuring 9 × 20 inches and rear wheels 10.5 × 20 inches. They are wrapped in 265/30 tires at the front and 285/30 at the rear. The wheels are Y-spoke and have a matte black finish. The same shade is applied to the four tailpipes to complement the rest of the exterior. In fact, the only contrasting accents are the blue brake calipers, the color of which is also used for stitching the interior.

The latest update is Eibach sport springs, which have improved the road stance of the M4 convertible by lowering its ride height.
