Back in 1988, the Bavarians of BMW M decided to chop the roof off one of their cars to create a high performance M3 convertible. And now, the automakers feel the need to celebrate that moment. That being said, check out this new BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre, following other anniversary models like that of last year’s 7 Series, 2016’s M3, and 2014’s M5.
The special edition M4 Convertible comes equipped with the M Competition Package and some other M goodies. This includes an adaptive suspension with sport mode, a sport exhaust system, and an active differential. Under its hood is a biturbo inline-six 3.0 liter engine that has been tweaked to bring out 450 horsepower (331 kilowatts), thanks to the very same package.
The automaker did not mention anything with regards to the car’s speed and acceleration though. But the standard model can hit the 62 miles per hour sprint in 4.6 seconds before hitting its top speed of 155 miles per hour.
Apart from the extra hardware installed, which all come with the model, the BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre gets a number of visual tweaks that will make it remind you of its ancestor from three decades ago. It has been finished in the Macao Blue metallic paint. Another colour it could be finished in would be the Mandarin II uni that has a resemblance to the Dakar Yellow shade which was available back in the day for the second generation M3 Convertible.
Whichever of the two colours you select, the M4 convertible will get a shiny black look on the kidney grille, side gills, and the model lettering. It sits on a set of 20 inch wheels that are finished in Orbit Grey with a matte look.
When inside the cabin, the fancy M4 Convertible will greet you with a full Merino leather trim in a finish that will match your car’s exterior colour. A “30 Jahre Edition” badge can be found on the door sills, and there’s a signet on the dashboard, in front of the passenger. There is also “30 Jahre Edition” lettering here, as well as the number “1/300” denoting the model’s limited availability.
So far, BMW has not shared any pricing details. We also don’t know yet which markets these models will be sold in. However, some sources say that it will be priced from £76,675. As only 300 units of this model will be available worldwide, it would be best if you act quickly if you want one of these. It will be even more limited in the United Kingdom as only 30 examples of the limited run special edition will be brought there.
