Spy Shots: BMW 4-Series Convertible shows off its roof mechanism
The upcoming BMW 4-Series Convertible has been caught topless before, but now the spy images that were captured show off the details of the vehicle’s roof mechanism. Just like the current 3-Series Convertible (E93), these photos officially confirm that BMW has decided to go with the folding hard top mechanism.
The BMW 4-Series Convertible is still heavily camouflaged, hiding most of the lines, but according to some inside information, the front end will differ from the recently announced F30 3-Series sedan and will be more sculptured and sportier. In fact, rumors say that the new 4-Series will take most of its design elements from the5-Series and 6-Series, but with more squared-off headlights and larger eyebrows.
Rumors also say that the 4-Series will be offered with the latest four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel units found in the BMW lineup, including the new 245bhp 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine.
The new BMW 4-Series Convertible will be launched sometime in 2013 and will go on sale as a 2014 model.
