The BMW M4 convertible edition 30 jahre


years ago, BMW complemented its model range for the first time with an open-top high-performance vehicle. just in time for the summer of 1988, the ‘M3 convertible’ offered people the possibility to enjoy the fascination of an open topped sports car designed for everyday use, but with racetrack-proven engine and suspension technology. the current successor, the ‘M4 convertible’, is a new interpretation of this vehicle concept.
