BMW has already announced plans to introduce the 2015 X4 and ALPINA B6 xDrive Gran Coupe at the New York Auto Show, but a recent report is indicating the company will also unveil the M4 Convertible in the Big Apple.

Based on the M4 Coupe, M4 Convertible will have an aggressive exterior but eschew the fixed roof for a retractable hardtop. The model should also have a number of carbon fiber components and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Power will be provided by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 431 HP (317 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 4.1 seconds and hit a top speed of up to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the optional M Driver's Package.
