2022 BMW M4 convertible spied

The BMW 4 Series convertible was revealed earlier this week, so it's no surprise there's an M4 drop top on its way with a beefy twin-turbo straight-six.

Hot drop-top aficionados should hold on to their cheque books for a little longer because BMW is cooking up a new M4 cabriolet.

At the front the M4 convertible adopts the same design we’ve seen on the coupe, with slender headlights flanking a protruding pair of full-height kidney grilles.

The front wheel arches are wider, and feature a large vertical vent. Out the back there’s a large diffuser and four hulking exhaust tips.

Under the bonnet is the new-generation ‘S58’ 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight six.

For the base M3 and M4 models, the S58 makes 353kW and 550Nm, and is coupled to a six-speed manual and rear-wheel drive.

In Competition trim output is bumped up to 375kW and 650Nm, but the manual is subbed in favour of an eight-speed automatic. The Competition is available with either rear- or all-wheel drive, and rides on 20-inch alloy wheels rather than the 19-inch rims on the standard spec.

For the M3 sedan and M4 coupe, the quoted 0-100km/h time ranges between 3.9 and 4.2 seconds depending on the drivetrain.

Like the just-unveiled 4 Series convertible, the M4 drop ditches the outgoing car’s folding hardtop for an electric soft-top, saving kilograms and improving boot space.

Eventually the M3/M4 range will comprise four models: sedan, coupe, convertible, and for the first time ever a wagon.
