All-new 2021 BMW M4 Cabriolet caught on camera

The upcoming BMW M4 Cabriolet has been spied at the Nurburgring, ahead of its launch in 2021

This is our first look at the new BMW M4 Cabriolet, which will reach the UK market in 2021. It will rival the Mercedes-AMG C63 cabriolet and ditch the outgoing model’s folding metal hardtop for a fabric roof, in the interest of weight reduction, packaging and efficiency.

Visually, the new M4 Convertible gets the usual M-division overhaul, with more aggressive front and rear bumpers, wider side skirts, flared wheel arches, larger alloys and a quad-exit exhaust. Inside, we expect to find a pair of sports seats, along with BMW’s 10.2-inch iDrive infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

Mechanically, the new M4 Cabriolet will be identical to the soon-to-be-released M3 Saloon, sharing that car’s all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine. It will be offered in two states of tune, with the standard version developing 480bhp and the flagship Competition producing 510bhp. However, like all of BMW’s latest M cars, it’s possible that BMW UK will only sell the more potent Competition versions over here.

Power will be sent to all four wheels via the German firm’s latest selectable four-wheel-drive system. The drivetrain will be similar to the new M5’s, offering drivers the option of sending up to 100 per cent of the engine’s power to the rear wheels if desired.

When dash cams are used in conjunction with black box technology – specifically, accelerometers which record high G-forces when a car is driven in an erratic or dangerous manner – young people drive more carefully if they think the data may be shared with their parents. • The history of the driving test In a report entitled ‘Keeping Young Drivers Safe During Early Licensure’, commissioned by the RAC Foundation, Dr Bruce Simons-Morton says the technology essentially gives parents a permanent presence in their children’s cars. This helps deal with the catch-22 situation young drivers often find themselves in, where they need to drive on the road to get more experience, but in doin..
