The all-new BMW M4 Competition Convertible with M xDrive
The BMW M4 Competition has made quite the headline as of late, and it isn’t just because of its highly controversial kidney grille. Now after much time, it has been announced that it would be receiving a Convertible model too and will even feature M xDrive.
As for power goes, it will come featured with a six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. It produces 375kW and can go from 0-100km in just 3.7 seconds. The BMW M4 Competition Convertible with M xDrive will be ground-breaking for the M badge as it's an open-top high-performance vehicle with all-wheel drive. The soft-top concept will combine the practical benefits of a retractable hardtop with an elegant but aesthetically pleasing fabric hood. The soft-top roof is also set to be 40 percent lighter than its predecessor as well as a larger boot space of 80 litres. It will take just 18-seconds for it to open while moving, and that is all thanks to its electric drive mechanism.

It comes with a large BMW kidney grille in M-specific design and badging, as well as large cooling air intakes for engine and brakes. The two pairs of tailpipes will come integrated into its M-specific diffuser. The extended side sills will be attached to the front and rear aprons.
