BMW is offering the latest in high-tech luxury open-top motoring – if you have a spare £80,000 to spend and are quick off the mark.
The special limited edition BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre open-top four-seater has a maximum output of 450hp, a sports exhaust system, adaptive suspension with specific sport mode, and a sports configuration of the stability control system DSC and the Active M differential. Only 30 have been allocated to the UK, at a price of £76,675 on-road.
There is a choice of two body colours: Macao Blue metallic pays tribute to the original high-performance M3 Convertible’s debut over three decades ago; and Frozen Dark Grey Metallic, which is available exclusively in the UK.
Standard features include BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line trims for the twin kidney grille surrounds, the M side gills, the model lettering and the forged M light alloys boasting a star-spoke design. The 20-inch wheels come in a matt Orbit Grey finish offered exclusively for this model.
The Merino leather trim, the colour scheme of which matches the desired vehicle body paintwork, characterises the interior of the BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre. In conjunction with the exterior colours Macao Blue or Frozen Dark Grey Metallic, there is a choice of the two-tone colour combinations Black/Fjord Blue and Black/Silverstone.
Other interior features include contrast stitching on the headrests as well as M floor mats with piping in the respective contrasting colour. The interior trim is finished in carbon fibre, which comes as standard.
The logo ‘30 Jahre Edition’ is imprinted both on the door sills and headrests. Additionally, the wording ‘30 Jahre Edition 1/300’ on the passenger side dashboard to give an indication of the exclusiveness of the model.
Power is delivered by a straight six-cylinder twin-turbo petrol engine, which when matched to the optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the Active M differential gives performance figures of 62mph in 4.3 seconds, a limited top speed of 155mph, emissions at 203 g/km and 32.5 miles to the gallon.
