Like the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe, the BMW M4 Convertible
also displays a strict adherence to the intelligent lightweight construction
principle. For example, the bonnet and front side panels are made from
aluminium, as are many components of the high-performance chassis

The three-section folding metal roof of the BMW M4 Convertible has full
interior lining and represents a compelling proposition with its excellent
soundproofing and winter-proof construction. The roof opens at the touch of
a button in under 20 seconds – while travelling at up to 18 km/h (11 mph), if
required.

With maximum output of 317 kW/431 hp available between 5,500 rpm and
7,300 rpm and peak torque of 550 Newton metres (406 lb-ft) on tap over an
extremely broad rev band (1,850 rpm – 5,500 rpm), the BMW M4 Convertible’s
six-cylinder engine has the firepower to provide elite sports car levels of
performance. Fitted with the standard six-speed manual gearbox, it needs just
4.6 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), dropping to
4.4 seconds if the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission is
specified. Top speed is an electronically governed 250 km/h (155 mph). The
M TwinPower Turbo engine hits maximum revs of 7,600 rpm and combines
superior sporting ability with outstanding efficiency. Indeed, the
BMW M4 Convertible posts fuel consumption of just 9.1 litres per 100 km /
31 mpg imp (M DCT: 8.7 l/100 km / 32.5 mpg imp) in the EU cycle – equating
to CO2 emissions of 213 g/km (203 g/km) – and already meets the EU6
exhaust gas standard.
