BMW M4 CONVERTIBLE – PERFORMANCE FEATURES.
Inspired by motorsport: an overview of powertrain and chassis technologies
The driving sensation in the BMW M4 Convertible is one of breathtaking intensity, and a source of boundless driving pleasure. Everything about this high-performance athlete is primed for powerful dynamics and handling agility. And thanks to the many technologies derived from motorsport, this model athlete always converts its power into traction with the utmost precision. This aspiration is further emphasised by the optional M Competition package with a higher grade of engine and specially tuned Adaptive M suspension.
BMW M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine & M Competition package.
The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine features superior power delivery and silky-smooth running coupled with a sporty engine sound. With Double-VANOS, Valvetronic, High-Precision Injection and a TwinScroll turbocharger, the high-performance M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine in combination with the optional M Competition package provides 331 kW (450 hp). The M sports exhaust system generates a characteristic engine sound. The specially tuned Adaptive M suspension provides optimal road contact, increased traction and more agile handling.
Adaptive M suspension.
By electronically regulating the shock absorbers, Adaptive M suspension automatically ensures the vehicle is perfectly tuned to suit the driving conditions. The suspension settings can be modified for high comfort or sporty dynamics via the COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes on the Driving Experience Control.
7-speed M double-clutch transmission.
Shift gears without interruption in tractive force, without using the clutch and without slowing down: the 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic makes this possible. Gears can be changed automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or the gear lever. Launch Control guarantees maximum acceleration from a standing start.
M 6-speed manual transmission.
With a 12 kg reduction in weight compared to traditional models and its more compact shape, the M 6-speed manual transmission in the BMW M4 Convertible exemplifies intelligent lightweight construction. Inside the transmission, the new carbon fibre friction lining in the baulk rings provides more comfortable gear shifts, and a dry sump lubrication system ensures a more efficient supply of oil.
M Driver’s Package.
The M Driver's Package increases the top speed to 280 km/h. The M Driver's Package can be ordered when purchasing a new vehicle or can be added on at a later date. All other technical data remain unchanged once installed. This also includes a voucher for BMW M Intensive Training as part of BMW Driving Experience.
BMW M4 CONVERTIBLE – DESIGN FEATURES.
M specific design elements in exterior and interior.
The BMW M4 Convertible instantly identifies itself as a high-performance open-top sports car. The powerful front end and the extended bonnet with powerdome lend the athletic silhouette expressive dynamism. A sportily exclusive atmosphere predominates inside the vehicle. The driver-oriented cockpit is equipped with round instrument displays in a racing car look ensuring optimum legibility. And this creates the ideal conditions to raise open-top driving to a new level.
Exterior highlights in the M Competition package.
On the exterior, the M Competition package makes a great impression with exclusive, forged and gloss-lathed 20" M light alloy wheels Star-spoke style 666 M with mixed tyres. The athletic character is emphasised by the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line with extended features, which runs in Black high-gloss from the front kidney grille over the gills to the model designation, ending at the black chrome-plated tailpipes.
The Retractable hardtop combines pure convertible excitement with the advantages of a hard roof that is suitable for winter. It can be opened and closed quickly – even while driving slowly, at speeds of up to 18 km/h. Seen from the outside, it has a coupé's characteristic low, elongated roofline. While inside, it offers plenty of headroom.
LED rear lights.
State-of-the-art LED technology guarantees optimum visibility with maximum efficiency and service life. Large-area blinkers and quick-reacting LED brake lights increase safety. A character-defining feature by night and by day is the distinctive L-shape of the rear lights.
BMW Selective Beam.
BMW Selective Beam automatically adjusts the high-beam headlights according to light and traffic conditions. The system registers the presence of vehicles in front or oncoming traffic and can be depended on to avoid dazzling other road users by smoothly adjusting the high-beam lights to suit.
A cockpit fit for the racetrack. Every detail is ergonomically optimised and oriented directly to the driver. At the centre is the elegant M leather steering wheel with its soft leather nappa covering. Its M Drive buttons can be used to activate individual setups, while sports-style gearshift paddles together with the optional M double-clutch transmission enable gear changes in fractions of a second. The instrument display in a striking M design provides a perfect view of all relevant driving data.
Driving at the limit and immersing yourself in an exclusive, sporty atmosphere is never a contradiction in the BMW M4 Convertible. The M seats share the same perfect build quality as the entire interior. A prime example: shown here, Silverstone fine-grain Merino leather.
Genuine exclusivity stands up to the scrutiny of a second glance. The interior trim finishers 'Carbon Fibre' with highlight trim finisher Black Chrome illustrate this perfectly with their unique surface finish radiating maximum dynamism. Also guaranteeing a sporty yet individual interior is the high-quality full leather upholstery 'Merino' Silverstone.
