After launching the all-new 4 Series convertible in New Zealand, BMW has decided to go one step further and introduce a sporty version for Kiwi buyers.
The M4, which will go on sale at the end of the year, is based on the 4 Series convertible but will have extras including a prominent bonnet, exterior mirrors in twinstalk style and flared front and rear wheel arches
It will also have a 3-litre six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and high-revving character taken from the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe.
The power unit generates maximum output of 317kW and 550Nm across a wide rev band.
The BMW M4 convertible will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds with the optional seven-speed M double clutch transmission.
The three-section folding metal roof has full interior lining that provides soundproofing and winter-proof construction. The roof opens in less than 20 seconds.
Price and more specifications of the M4 convertible will be revealed closer to launch date, says BMW New Zealand.
The 4 Series convertible is priced from $120,600 for the 428i and $149,200 for the 435i M Sport.
