The high-performance version of the BMW M4 convertible first spotted on tests

After seeing a lot of “spy” shots of the new BMW 4 Series Convertible, we finally looked at the high-performance version of the M4. It is reported that the prototype of the long-awaited news is seen in the immediate vicinity of the Nürburgring race track.

There are still no official images of the new gig of the 4th series, therefore, to see that a new model has appeared on the sealed prototype is a rather difficult task. Although it’s hard to see here, we expect the M4 to have the same look and feel as a regular model, but with more aggressive “touches” such as larger air intakes in the front bumper.

This test mule has a set of large wheels with five double spokes. BMW M brake calipers and drilled discs are also visible. The back of the car seems unfinished because of the strange exhaust pipes. On the production version of the “charged” BMW M4 cabriolet, expect that there will be a diffuser between the pipes, which will hide most of the muffler.

Recent reports show that the new M3 and M4 have a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine with twin turbocharging. It will produce 473 horsepower as standard, and a hotter version of the Competition will increase this figure to 503 hp.

 Transmission options will reportedly consist of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a manual transmission.

  The new M3 and M4 are expected to debut in mid-2020. The M4 cabriolet will probably show a bit later.

Not so long ago, our edition wrote that BMW had launched the mass production of the updated 1 Series hatchback. At the factory of the Bavarian brand, the assembly of a new generation of compact hatchback started. The very first car that went off the assembly line, is the performance of the 118i with a sports package and blue body color.
