BMW introduces a third body variant to the new generation of high-performance sports cars for the premium midsize segment: BMW M4 Competition Convertible with M xDrive.


BMW introduces a third body variant to the new generation of high-performance sports cars for the premium midsize segment: BMW M4 Competition Convertible with M xDrive. Production is set to begin in July 2021. BMW has no plans to introduce a cheaper real-driven version.

It breaks new ground for M as an open-top high-performance sports car with all-wheel drive. A convincing blend of driving pleasure combined with implacable everyday usability and long-distance capabilities. The M4 Competition Convertible features a new soft-top concept, which combines the practical benefits of a retractable hardtop with a classically aesthetic of a fabric hood. The soft-top is 40% lighter than the previous generation’s roof and the boot space is 80 liters larger as well. It takes 18seconds for the soft-top to be opened or closed, even when moving.

Signature M exterior features are important to meet the requirements of a high-performance sports car: large, vertical BMW kidney grille in M-specific design, large cooling air intakes for engine and brakes, distinctive M Side Gills. The exhaust system is two pairs of tailpipes merged into M-specific diffuser. The extended side sills combined with attachment parts for front and rear aprons form a black band which encircles the whole body. M Carbon exterior package and BMW M Performance Parts will be available as options.

Under the hood is a 6-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology with a high-revving character. Maximum power output it produces is 510hp, a 60hp increase from its predecessor, and peak torque of 650 Nm. This beast of an engine enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 250km/h. The exhaust system comes with electrically controlled flaps which provides a poignant soundtrack. The total fuel consumption is 10.2 l/100 km and CO2 emissions are between 233-231 g/km. (WLTP) Power is supplied via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with DriveLogic. The gearshift paddles are placed on the steering wheel, to provide a race-car feeling to the driver.

Three shift programs are provided along with a selector lever in M-specific design. The M xDrive features an all-wheel drive system along with driving stability controls as a standard, but the driver gets to choose from three different modes on the go: 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD for pure rear-wheel drive experience with the driving stability control system deactivated. The wheels are forged M light-alloy, measuring 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear as standard.

The cockpit is ergonomically optimized to give a sports-car feel with M-specific displays and controls are a concept with Setup button which gives direct access to the settings for the engine, chassis, steering, braking system and M xDrive. The M sport seats are newly developed and comes with extended Merino leather trim as standard, seat ventilation and M Carbon bucket seats optionally available. Other standard specifications include three-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, hi-fi speaker system, plus BMW Live Cockpit Professional featuring fully digital display grouping, cloud‑based navigation system BMW Maps and BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.
