THE NEW BMW M240i CONVERTIBLE.

The signature of M GmbH on the BMW M240i Convertible is unmistakeable. Apart from the M Sport package, a large number of specific M Performance features ensure that this spirited two-door vehicle is something special.


From outside and inside, this M Performance convertible clearly indicates its sporting DNA. At first sight discreet, at second glance captivating and at the next moment, when the 6-cylinder engine starts up, the sky’s the limit for stimulating driving experiences.

EXTERIOR DESIGN.

On the BMW M240i Convertible, the side air inlets of the aerodynamic front apron are fitted with design elements in Ferric Grey. Similarly in Ferric Grey, the 18-inch 436 M Double-spoke light-alloy wheels are the ideal medium for transferring acceleration to the asphalt. The curved exterior mirror caps in Ferric Grey and the side M logo in Dark Chrome are an elegant way of accentuating that the vehicle is an M Performance Automobile. In the rear view, exhaust pipe finishers in Black Chrome on both sides together with model designation also in Dark Chrome underline the close relationship between the BMW M240i Convertible and the models from BMW M.


The interior also includes selected features from the M Sport package, such as the sport seats for driver and front passenger as well as the M sport steering wheel. They are supplemented by exclusive door sill finishers with model designation, which arouse feelings of joyful anticipation of the driving experience ahead in both driver and front passenger. Setting sporty accents directly in the driver’s field of vision are the digital model designation, the red dial design and the fine chrono scaling in the instrument cluster.

M PERFORMANCE TWINPOWER TURBO PETROL ENGINE.

The BMW M240i Convertible not only inspires with its unbridled power, but also with pure agility and everyday utility.

 

The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with a displacement of 3.0 litres combines Valvetronic including Double-VANOS and direct petrol injection with a Twin Scroll turbocharger. Its extremely spontaneous response, high torque even at low revs and across a broad power band are the distinguishing features of this powerful engine. The result is a maximum torque of 500 Nm with a combined fuel consumption* of 8.3 l/100 km (8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission: 7.4 l). In only 4.9 seconds (8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission: 4.7 s), the Convertible accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h. This engine is used exclusively in the M Performance Automobile of the BMW 2 Series.

 

The specific exhaust system of the BMW M240i Convertible can be instantly recognised by the tailpipes in Black Chrome on both sides. Elimination of the middle silencer and the intelligent air vent control produce a charismatic sound, which even exerts its spine-tingling effect on the occupants of the sport seats. These extensive acoustic optimisations significantly reinforce the open sports car sensation even more.

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others.

DRIVING DYNAMICS.

The driving dynamics concept of the BMW M240i Convertible is designed with a view to performance. Increased driving pleasure with unlimited everyday utility is the objective.
The high level of agility and precision in the handling and the balanced tuning of all components can be felt when coming out of every bend. With their extensive modifications, the engineers of BMW M GmbH have optimised the suspension and steering characteristics of this convertible down to the finest detail.

 

In order to translate the outstanding engine performance into impressive and authoritative driving dynamics, springs and stabilisers have been precisely adjusted to the high-torque 6-cylinder engine. Specific elasto-kinematics for the front axle guarantee impressive driving moments. Even more agility is achieved by the specially tuned M sport suspension lowered by 10 millimetres and the variable sport steering including Servotronic.

Responsible for the dynamic sprints of the BMW M240i Convertible is the option of the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. The Launch Control it contains ensures that accelerations from 0 to 100 km/h are possible in only 4.7 seconds. Simply press the DSC button, set the selector lever to position “S”, briefly depress the brake and kick down the accelerator pedal – releasing the brake now will teach you precisely what thrust means.

 

The 18-inch M light-alloy wheels of the type 436 M Double-spoke at the front are brought resolutely to a standstill by four-piston fixed calliper aluminium brake disc brakes. Acting on the rear axle is a two-piston version. Thanks to internal ventilation they perform reliably even under a high thermal load. Even when the vehicle is stationary, this tremendous braking power can be recognised by the distinct blue brake callipers with M logo.
