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.

limited to 300 vehicles, this BMW limited edition model builds on the ‘M’ competition package available for the ‘M4’ convertible. the open-top four-seater has a maximum output of 450 hp, an ‘M’ exhaust system, adaptive suspension with specific sport mode and a sports configuration of the stability control system DSC and an active differential. with a choice of two body colors for the limited edition ’30 jahre’ – the macao blue metallic pays tribute to the high-performance car’s debut over three decades ago, and the frozen dark grey metallic boasts a rich sporting heritage.

 

 

standard features for the edition model include individual high gloss shadow line trims for the BMW kidney grille surround, ‘M’ side gills, model lettering and forged ‘M’ light alloys boasting a star-spoke design. the 20-inch wheels come in the color orbit grey matt. the merino full leather trim, the color scheme of which matches the desired vehicle body paintwork, characterises the interior of the ‘M4’. in addition to the exterior paint options, there is a choice of the two-tone color 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 color. the interior trim is finished in carbon fiber which comes as standard for both edition model variants. the logo ’30 jahre edition’ is imprinted both on the doorsills and the headrests.
