When the BMW M4 Convertible accelerates to the limit in next to no time, the siginificance of power can be experienced with all senses. The boost stays finely adjustable even in the highest rev ranges. And thanks to numerous motor sport technologies such as the Active M Differential or M Servotronic, the BMW M4 Convertible reacts in every situation exactly as you expect of a top-class athlete: with high precision and absolute technical perfection.

COMPETITION PACKAGE.

An unadulterated racing feel: Thanks to an enhanced engine output and a specially tuned Adaptive M suspension, new calibration of the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the Active M differential and 20" M light alloy wheels with mixed tires, the Competition package from BMW M4 offers even better performance.

The output of the M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine has been increased to 425 hp. The M sports exhaust system generates a particularly dynamic engine sound that is destined to thrill. On the racetrack and in everyday use, the specially tuned Adaptive M suspension ensures that every steering command is executed with maximum precision. On the exterior, the Competition package features exclusive forged, gloss-lathed 20" M light alloy wheels Star-spoke style 666 M, with mixed tires. Its athletic character is emphasized by the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line with extended features, which runs in Black high-gloss from the front kidney grille over the gills to the model designation, ending at the black chrome-plated tailpipes.

ACTIVE M DIFFERENTIAL.

The Active M Differential variably distributes the drive torque between the two rear wheels to optimize traction and driving stability during dynamic lane changing or accelerating out of curves, when making curves at high speeds or on roads with uneven surfaces, including on snow, gravel and ice. It even provides precise handling during extreme lateral acceleration. The constant, smooth adjustment of the differential lock harmonises the vehicle's driving performance, improving control in extreme driving situations.
Traction is optimized with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels. The system, which was developed for motor sports, is connected to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) via an electronic control unit. It proactively provides the perfect use of locking action between 0 and 100 percent, neutralising even the finest differences in torque between the rear wheels – without the tendency to understeer. The Active M Differential provides optimal grip as well as great directional stability and perfect handling, and it converts virtually all of the engine's drive power into acceleration.

LAUNCH CONTROL.

Launch Control lets an engine that has reached operating temperature achieve maximum acceleration from a standing start. Just deactivate Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), choose the sequential mode with driving program 3, firmly hold down the brake and press the accelerator pedal to kickdown.
After the starting-flag symbol in the instrument cluster display is illuminated, the engine will be set to its ideal starting speed when pushing down the accelerator pedal. While maintaining kickdown, release the brake and the vehicle will then accelerate to the maximum until the accelerator is released. The M Double Clutch Transmission constantly sets the gearshift points so that when shifting up, the next optimal engine speed is available. This is a feature which is destined to delight drivers with dynamic, sporty ambitions.

INTELLIGENT LEIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION.

In M vehicles, lightweight construction is of the highest priority. That is because low weight is the basis for the best driving dynamics and exemplary efficiency. Ultra-light materials like magnesium, aluminum or CFRP (carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic) are used in many components. That allows for greater agility and dynamics, and improves acceleration and braking.

ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.

The Adaptive M suspension's electronically controlled shock absorbers constantly adjust to road conditions as well as driving style within milliseconds, guaranteeing optimal road contact in every situation, the best possible traction and even more agile handling. The suspension settings can be adjusted from comfortable to sporty-dynamic via the Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes.
Comfort mode ensures comfortable handling during everyday driving, and also increases safety in case sudden swerving is necessary. In Sport mode, ample comfort is maintained, but dampening is reduced and contact with the road is more direct – ideal for country roads and uneven racecourses. Sport+ mode offers minimal dampening and maximum driving dynamics on level roads and racetracks.

BRAKES.

One decisive factor for a highly dynamic driving experience in the BMW M4 Convertible are the brake systems.With their unbeatable precision, the M Carbon Ceramic Brake System and the M compound brakes ensure unrivalled dynamics and performance.

  • M Carbon Ceramic Brake System.

    The M Carbon ceramic brake is a result of the transfer of technologies from the motor sport industry. The application of an innovative carbon fibre compound ceramic makes the braking power even more direct and improves brake-fade stabilization. It is also non-corrosive, very resistant to abrasion, tolerates more heat and contributes to a lower vehicle weight. Its lightweight construction reduces rotating and unsprung mass, improving acceleration, responsiveness and overall handling, but also increasing the driving dynamics and traction, improving suspension comfort and reducing fuel consumption.

    With its unusually large brake discs (front 410mm, rear 396 mm), six-piston fixed callipers at the front and one-piston floating callipers at the rear, the M Carbon ceramic brake is fit for the race track thanks to its very high heat resistance even over long periods of use. A perforated and ventilated brake disc ring guarantees significantly enhanced responsiveness in wet conditions and more powerful heat dissipation. The M Carbon ceramic brake is easy to recognize, thanks to its matt Gold-coloured brake callipers featuring the classic M logo.

    Due to the material-specific characteristics, situation- and use-dependent functional noises may occur, particularly on wet surfaces shortly before the vehicle comes to a standstill.

  • M Compound Brakes

    M compound brakes have benefited from technology-transfer from motor sports, allowing them to maintain constant effectiveness and brake-fade stabilization, even under demanding usage. The use of various highly resilient materials results in excellent thermal stability, a long lifespan and precise control. It also reduces the brakes' weight, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration.

    The perforated, ventilated brake disc rings (380 mm front, 370 mm rear), and the brake callipers with four pistons in front and two in the rear guarantee optimal responsiveness in wet conditions, as well as improved heat dissipation. The brake callipers in blue metallic with the characteristic M logo strongly emphasise the brake discs' sporty appearance and distinct, authentic M design.

M SERVOTRONIC.

M Servotronic adjusts the power steering to suit the current speed and ensures a direct and precise steering response even at high speeds. It also ensures supreme comfort by minimizing the physical effort required for steering, as well as maximizing agility when parking, manoeuvring or navigating narrow or twisting roads.

7-SPEED M DUAL-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION WITH DRIVELOGIC.

The M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative 7-speed double clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-rev engine.
The system boasts a traction-optimized automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance, as well as the Auto Start-Stop function. It makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without any loss in power. Two sub-transmissions, each with its own clutch, continuously relay the power of the engine to the rear wheels.
The system can be controlled automatically, or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or gear lever. Just as with Launch Control, which allows maximum acceleration from a standing start, an extremely dynamic driving experience is the result: Shifting gears at high speed is possible without using the clutch, and without any interruption in the power delivery. Drivelogic can be automatically (D mode) or manually (S mode) controlled, and in each mode three shifting options are available: extremely fast, sporty gear changes, to comfortable, to efficient.

  • Dependent on conditions and usage, features specific to the materials used can lead to operational noises particularly in wet conditions just before the vehicle comes to a halt. The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.
