BMW M4 Convertible rocks blood red Vossen wheels and looks amazing

Article by Christian A., on April 5, 2017

Most of the car enthusiasts perceive the BMW M4 Cabrio as a posh sports car, but the brand never rests on its laurels and focuses instead on offering top performance.

Some vehicle owners like to keep their wheels in check but the individuals behind this open top car is determined to raise the sleek aesthetic by further modifying the automobile. There’s some disagreement on whether it’s working. The stock wheels of the M4 were replaced with blood red Vossen VPS 314T forged directional concave wheels, which gave the sports car a more rugged look.

When compared with the BMW M4 coupe, the roofless car weighs 250 kg (550 lbs) more and is not as fast or as dynamic. Nevertheless, just like its BMW M4 Coupe kin, the M4 Cabrio is powered by the ever impressive forced induction which powers its rear wheels. In place of the M3's convertible that is equipped with 4.0 liter V8, power for the M4 convertible comes with a 425 hp and 406 lb/ft of torque from 1,850 rpm all the way to 5,500 rpm. For its transmission, the variants include a 6 speed manual and a 7 speed dual clutch automatic.

The shift stick features a downshift function and aids the M4 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. Meanwhile, the 7 speed dual clutch has more an advantage here due to a quicker sprint time of 4.2 seconds- not bad for a convertible. The newly fitted blood red wheels highly complement the Mineral Gray Color of the BMW V4, also providing an eye-popping contrast to the metallic finish of the convertible. In the BMW blog, the 2 front wheels measure around 20x8.5 while the 2 rear wheels measure at 20x10.5.

In case you don’t know, Vossen Wheel Company is a well-known company that has been manufacturing aftermarket wheels since the 1980s with a worldwide distribution of a whopping 30 countries. It specializes in low pressure casting of aluminium wheels in diameters from 19 inches to 22 inches and with widths from 8.5 to 12.5 inches. All the designs are offered in either shiny chrome or elegant black finish.

Vossen came up with casting one piece deep concave rims, just like what has been fitted with the M4. Actually, it has been highly instrumental in making concave wheels as famous as they are today. For ensuring the supreme product, every Vossen wheel is put through rigid quality control to ensure cream of the crop quality. If there are any defects in the material or in the workmanship that will arise with day to day use, Vossen will either replace or refinish the affected wheels with no charge whatsoever.

The reviews about this customized convertible are pretty much divided. While several reviewers screamed bloody murder, considered the customization as an attack to the eyes and labelled it strange and unpleasant, others praised the ingenuity of Vossens and tagged the upgrade as daring with a dash of class.
