BMW M4 Convertible Loses a Top, Adds Some Weight
This year’s 2014 New York Auto Show has quickly become land of the high-powered convertibles. The Corvette Z06 is obviously the big kahuna, and the Porsche Boxster GTS is packing some handsome power — but the bavarians brought along something sexy of their own. The BMW M4 Convertible is the handsome, foldable hardtop opposite the M4 coupe. With its two-door layout and aggressive M persona, the M4 convertible gives you all the performance of the coupe, with the added enjoyment of wind in your hair and bugs in your teeth.

At 425 horsepower, the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six can reach 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds. All this power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission, or the standard six-speed manual.
With all that power comes some added weight. At 4,055 pounds, the M4 convertible does come in a bit heftier than the standard coupe. But for reference, it does signify a 90 pound decrease from the M3 convertible that it replaces.

The BMW M4 convertible is on display now at the New York Auto Show and is expected to go on sale later in the year. Price hasn’t been given.
