The 2015 BMW M4 convertible made its debut at the New York Auto Show for those who want a little more fresh air and sunshine with their M4 driving experience.
It’s powered by the same BMW M TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline-six as the M4 Coupe that produces 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque and is paired to a choice of either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed M-DCT transmission. Peak torque has been increased by about 40 percent and is maintained over a rev band from 1,850–5,500 rpm.
The BMW M4 Convertible can hit 0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds on the 6-speed manual or 4.2 seconds on the 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission. Top speed is an electronically limited 155 mph with a maximum 7,600 rpms.
Curb weight on the 2015 BMW M4 is about 90 pounds less than its predecessor at 4,055 lbs but that’s still a bit on the hefty side. The weight savings comes thanks to aluminum front fenders and hood as well as lightweight aluminum in the chassis.
Expect to see the 2015 BMW M4 convertible in showrooms this summer, just in time for the sunny weather.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
