  • Exclusive features on the exterior

    On the BMW M240i Cabriolet, the side air inlets of the aerodynamic front apron are fitted with design elements in Ferric Grey. Similarly in Ferric Grey, the 18-inch 436 M Double-spoke light-alloy wheels are the ideal medium for transferring acceleration to the asphalt. The curved exterior mirror caps in Ferric Grey and the side M logo in Dark Chrome are an elegant way of accentuating that the vehicle is an M Performance Automobile. In the rear view, exhaust pipe finishers in Black Chrome on both sides together with model designation also in Dark Chrome underline the close relationship between the BMW M240i Cabriolet and the models from BMW M.

  • Exclusive features in the interior

    The interior also includes selected features from the M Sport package, such as the sport seats for driver and front passenger as well as the M sport steering wheel. They are supplemented by exclusive door sill finishers with model designation, which arouse feelings of joyful anticipation of the driving experience ahead in both driver and front passenger. Setting sporty accents directly in the driver’s field of vision are the digital model designation, the red dial design and the fine chrono scaling in the instrument cluster.


The BMW M240i Cabriolet not only inspires with its unbridled power, but also with pure agility and everyday utility. The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with a displacement of 3.0 litres combines Valvetronic including Double-VANOS and direct petrol injection with a Twin Scroll turbocharger. Its extremely spontaneous response, high torque even at low revs and across a broad power band are the distinguishing features of this powerful engine. The result is a maximum torque of 369ft/lb with a combined fuel consumption of 10.5 l/100km (8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission: 9.6 l). In only 4.7 seconds (8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission: 4.6s), the Cabriolet accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h. This engine is used exclusively in the M Performance Automobile of the BMW 2 Series.

  • Emotive M Performance sound

    The specific exhaust system of the BMW M240i Cabriolet can be instantly recognized by the tailpipes in Black Chrome on both sides. Elimination of the middle silencer and the intelligent air vent control produce a charismatic sound, which even exerts its spine-tingling effect on the occupants of the sport seats. These extensive acoustic optimizations significantly reinforce the open sports car sensation even more.  


The driving dynamics concept of the BMW M240i Cabriolet is designed with a view to performance. Increased driving pleasure with unlimited everyday utility is the objective. The high level of agility and precision in the handling and the balanced tuning of all components can be felt when coming out of every bend. With their extensive modifications, the engineers of BMW M GmbH have optimized the suspension and steering characteristics of this Cabriolet down to the finest detail.

  • More dynamism: the lowered M sport chassis

    In order to translate the outstanding engine performance into impressive and authoritative driving dynamics, springs and stabilizers have been precisely adjusted to the high-torque 6-cylinder engine. Specific elasto-kinematics for the front axle guarantee impressive driving moments. Even more agility is achieved by the specially tuned M sport suspension lowered by 10 millimetres and the variable sport steering including Servotronic. The optional BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system distributes the propulsive force of the BMW M240i xDrive Cabriolet flexibly between the axles and supplies best possible traction even under difficult road conditions.

    Figures for the BMW M240i xDrive Cabriolet:
    Fuel consumption (combined) in l/100km: 9.6 (10.5)
    CO2 emissions (combined): 244 (224)

  • More sport: the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission

    Responsible for the dynamic sprints of the BMW M240i Cabriolet is the option of the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. The Launch Control it contains ensures that accelerations from 0 to 100 km/h are possible in only 4.6 seconds. Simply press the DSC button, set the selector lever to position “S”, briefly depress the brake and kick down the accelerator pedal – releasing the brake now will teach you precisely what thrust means.

  • Greater control: M Sport brakes as standard

    The 18-inch M light-alloy wheels of the type 436 M Double-spoke at the front are brought resolutely to a standstill by four-piston fixed calliper aluminium brake disc brakes. Acting on the rear axle is a two-piston version. Thanks to internal ventilation they perform reliably even under a high thermal load. Even when the vehicle is stationary, this tremendous braking power can be recognized by the distinct blue brake callipers with M logo.


Finely honed design, perfected drive, maximized driving dynamics. M Performance Automobiles embody this triad of features. As exclusive offers from BMW M GmbH, they combine the best of their respective series with the dynamic genes of BMW M, thus creating their very own class.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tire sizes selected. Consumtion data is determined in accordance to the ECE driving cycle.

The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.

Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
