BMW M3 Convertible

Three body types were available for the 1994 BMW M3: Coupe, Sedan and Convertible. At the cost of a little extra money, consumers could have all the enjoyment of an M3 with the open air and wind blowing through your hair. One thing that separates the BMW M3 Convertible from other cars is that despite its amazing capabilities as a sports car, it does not demand any major sacrifices from the driver in the areas of comfort and convenience.


The new M3 Cabriolet appeared at the same time with the four-door sedan model and coupe model. Many of the exterior features remain the same between the three cars, except of course the roof, being a convertible means that the roof is a soft top that retracts into the trunk. A hard top painted in the same exterior color is available to match the rest of the car. There are seven exterior colors available for the BMW M3 Convertible, while four of those colors were exclusively created just for the M3. The same aerodynamic mirrors are on all three models, developed specifically to reduce drag and air resistance.


A wide variety of options are available for all of the BMW M3 models. The options list includes CFC-free air conditioning, a driver’s airbag, remote control anti-theft system, electronic front windows, heated door locks, mirrors and screen washer nozzles, suede trim, and an on-board trip computer. Other options include an electric sun-roof, electronically adjustable front seats, cruise control, and a trunk-mounted 6 CD changer. The M3 carries a full size spare wheel and tire under the floor cover in the trunk.


Fitted with a 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder, the BMW M3 Convertible delivers 286 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. This power gets the M3 Cabrio from zero to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds due to the extra weight of the convertible top. The top speed remains the same, being electronically limited at 155 mph.
