Spied: New BMW M4 Convertible Chilling Out in Sweden

If you prefer an open top experience with an M4, BMW will soon have just the thing for you with the hardtop convertible version of the high-performance series, which was spied here while taking a rest from cold weather testing in Sweden.

You may lose the carbon-fiber roof and gain more than 200kg (440 pounds) in the process (FYI the 435i Coupe weighs 1,585 kg / 3,494 lbs while the 435i Convertible 1,815 kg / 4,001 lbs), but look at it from the bright side; you'll be able to enjoy the summer sun at a touch of a button in just 22 seconds.

Other than that, the M4 Convertible will benefit from the same mechanical and styling revisions as the M4 Coupe, including, of course, BMW's new 3.0-liter straight-six turbo that delivers 425hp (431PS) and 550Nm (406 lb-ft).

Channeling drive to the rear wheels will be a standard six-speed manual gearbox, but more tech-orientated buyers will be able to pick an optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (DCT) with remote paddle shifters.

Prices for the M4 Convertible should command a premium over the Coupe edition.
