We bring you the latest and greatest look at the BMW M4 Convertible (F83), which is seen here in Matte Frozen Black and with minimal camouflage.

Mechanically, the M4 Convertible will share with the M4 Coupe and M3 Sedan. Stylistically, it shares much of the M4 Coupe’s design, but is differentiated by its folding hardtop roof (without double-bubble), lack of B pillar and different trunk lid shape. The trunk lid styling looks to be something halfway between the high curvy CSL-style ‘duckbill’ trunk of the M4 Coupe and the flat trunk design of the M3 Sedan.

The M4 Convertible should see its introduction sometime late this year.

The X5 eDrive travels up to 70 MPH (120kmh) on electric power alone and has a maximum range of 19 miles (30km) on electric power alone. Acceleration from 0-62 MPH takes under … CONTINUED

Grassroot Motorsports drives the BMW M235i Racing around Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It’s a factory-built race car from BMW designed for privateers and club racers, aimed mostly at Germany’s VLN series at the Nurburgring and similar European series. BMW is entertaining thoughts of bringing it to the US, so they invited us to try it out.
