The BMW M4 Coupe has been getting all the attention lately but it's time for the M4 Convertible to shine as both our spies have managed to snap photos of the upcoming model.

Looking virtually identical to its coupe counterpart, the M4 Convertible has an aggressive appearance thanks to modified bumpers, revised side skirts and a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system. The car has also been equipped with a bulging hood, an M6-inspied grille and a folding hardtop.

BMW has been coy about specifications but the model is expected to use a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops approximately 420 bhp (313 kW). Despite rumors of the car being equipped exclusively with a dual-clutch automatic transmission, a mountain of evidence suggests a six-speed manual will be offered as well.

The M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe are expected to debut at the North American International Auto Show in January, so the convertible will likely be unveiled a few months later.
