Back in December, BMW unveiled the new BMW M4 Coupe, and now BMW has announced their latest M series convertible, the 2014 BMW M4 Convertible.
The BMW M4 convertible features the same BMW M TwinPower Turbo 3.0 liter inline-six engine as the BMW M4, and it comes with either a 6 speed manual or 7 speed M-DCT transmission.
The M TwinPower Turbo technology comprises two fast-responding mono-scroll turbochargers, High Precision Direct Injection, Valvetronic variable valve timing and Double-VANOS continuously variable camshaft timing. Valvetronic and Double-VANOS work in tandem to seamlessly control intake valve lift. The result is smooth and efficient power delivery, very sharp response and reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
The six-cylinder engine features a closed-deck crankcase design which is very rigid and allows cylinder pressures to be increased for improved power output. And instead of liners, the cylinder bores feature a twin-wire arc-sprayed coating, which results in a significant reduction in engine weight.
The new BMW M4 Convertible has an electronically limited top speed of 155mph, it can do 0 to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds, and pumps out 425hp.
BMW has equipped the new M4 convertible with its latest technology, and it comes with a lightweight design and a range of weight saving measures.
BMW will be showing off the new M4 convertible at the New York International Auto Show later this month, as yet they have not revealed any pricing.
