SETS THE TONE.

The driving dynamics of the BMW M4 Convertible.

When the BMW M4 Convertible accelerates to the limit in next to no time, the significance of power can be experienced with all senses. The boost stays finely adjustable even in the highest rev ranges. Thanks to numerous motorsport technologies such as the Active M Differential or M Servotronic, the BMW M4 Convertible reacts to every situation with high precision and absolute technical perfection. It's exactly what you'd expect from a top-class athlete.

ACTIVE M DIFFERENTIAL.

The Active M Differential variably distributes the drive torque between the two rear wheels to optimise traction and driving stability during dynamic lane changing or accelerating out of curves, as well as taking curves at high speeds or on roads with uneven surfaces, including on gravel.

It even provides precise handling during extreme lateral acceleration. The constant, smooth adjustment of the differential lock harmonises the vehicle's driving performance, improving control in extreme driving situations. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels. The system, which was developed for motorsports, is connected to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) via an electronic control unit. It proactively provides the perfect use of locking action between 0 and 100 percent, neutralising even the finest differences in torque between the rear wheels – without the tendency to understeer. The Active M Differential provides optimal grip as well as great directional stability and perfect handling. It converts virtually all of the engine's drive power into acceleration.

LAUNCH CONTROL.

Launch Control lets an engine that has reached operating temperature achieve maximum acceleration from a standing start. Just deactivate Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), choose the sequential mode with driving program 3, firmly hold down the brake and press the accelerator pedal to kickdown.

After the starting-flag symbol in the instrument cluster display is illuminated, the engine will be set to its ideal starting speed when pushing down the accelerator pedal. While maintaining kickdown, release the brake and the vehicle will then accelerate to the maximum until the accelerator is released. The M dual-clutch transmission constantly sets the gearshift points so that when shifting up, the next optimal engine speed is available. This is a feature which is destined to delight drivers with dynamic, sporty ambitions.

INTELLIGENT LEIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION.

In M vehicles, lightweight construction is of the highest priority. That is because low weight is the basis for the best driving dynamics and exemplary efficiency.

Ultra-light materials like magnesium, aluminium or CFRP (carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic) are used in many components. This allows for greater agility and dynamics, and improves acceleration and braking.

ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.

The optional Adaptive M suspension's electronically controlled shock absorbers constantly adjust to road conditions as well as driving style within milliseconds, guaranteeing optimal road contact in every situation, the best possible traction and even more agile handling.

The suspension settings can be adjusted from comfortable to sporty-dynamic via the Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes.

Comfort mode ensures comfortable handling during everyday driving, and also increases safety in case sudden swerving is necessary. In Sport mode, ample comfort is maintained, but dampening is reduced and contact with the road is more direct. It's ideal for country roads and uneven racecourses. Sport+ mode offers minimal dampening and maximum driving dynamics on level roads and racetracks.

BRAKES.

One decisive factor for a highly dynamic driving experience in the BMW M4 Convertible is the brake systems. With their unbeatable precision, the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brake System and the M compound brakes ensure unrivalled dynamics and performance.

  • M Carbon Ceramic Brake System.

    The optional M Carbon Ceramic Brake System implements braking power more directly. It doesn't corrode, tolerates more heat, features strongly reduced abrasion and contributes to lower vehicle weight, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration. Brake callipers in Gold Metallic with the M logo make this special technical equipment visible from the outside of the car.

    Through the use of various materials, M compound brakes achieve outstanding deceleration values and high stability as well as a long lifespan. They also weigh less, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The brake calipers in blue metallic with the M logo are the hallmark of high-performance compound brakes.

    Dependent on conditions and usage, features specific to the materials used can lead to operational noises particularly in wet conditions just before the vehicle comes to a halt. The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.

M SERVOTRONIC.

M Servotronic adjusts the power steering to suit the current speed and ensures a direct and precise steering response even at high speeds.

It also ensures supreme comfort by minimising the physical effort required for steering, as well as maximising agility when parking, manoeuvring or navigating narrow or twisting roads.

7-SPEED M DUAL-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION WITH DRIVELOGIC.

The M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative 7-speed dual-clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-rev engine.

The system boasts a traction-optimised automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance, as well as the Automatic Start/Stop function. It makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without any loss in power. Two sub-transmissions, each with its own clutch, continuously relay the power of the engine to the rear wheels.

The system can be controlled automatically, or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or gear lever. Just as with Launch Control, which allows maximum acceleration from a standing start, an extremely dynamic driving experience is the result. Shifting gears at high speed is possible without using the clutch, and without any interruption in the power delivery. Drivelogic can be automatically (D mode) or manually (S mode) controlled. You can also choose between extremely sporty, comfortable or efficient driving with three shifting options available.
