BMW looks set to change the face of motoring with the introduction of a patented artificial G-force technology.

BMW’s new Force Injection Booster simulates the effects of spirited driving, even when commuting at slower speeds, to create a thrilling ride. When activated at speeds under 20mph, the Force Injection Booster (FIB) works by extracting kinetic energy from the car’s engine and converting it into positive g-forces. These are then channelled directly at the driver and passengers through the air conditioning vents, while a mild electric current is delivered through the front seats, to simulate the same exhilarating feeling of driving at high speed*.

Video of the BMW M4 Convertible testing at the Nurburgring. The M4 will have its debut later this year – potentially as early as the NY Autoshow in April.

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 metal 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.
