There’s no doubt that the G8x M3 and M4 are…polarizing. If the styling wasn’t enough to push you off, in order to keep up with the Joneses, BMW added all-wheel drive to the lineup as well. The results are undeniable; the M4 Competition xDrive coupe hits 60 in just 2.8 seconds thanks mostly to the system being able to channel its 503 horsepower to the ground. Remember when that was quick for a bike? Despite their nearly two-ton curb weight, they’re also capable of 1g-plus in the corners, thanks in no small part to the 19 and 20″ wheels with super-sticky Michelins that are part of the Competition Package. The all-wheel-drive system also adds a surprisingly small amount of weight, and it can be reverted to rear-drive only; quite the trick. The convertible also went from the complicated and heavy hardtop mechanism to a more traditional soft top for the first time since the E46. That meant it was about 40% lighter than the hardtop, though it does limit the color pallet.
In the convertible version, the M4 is limited to Competition and xDrive configuration. So equipped, it starts at over $87k – and this one adds in Executive package for $1,800, the M Driver’s package, $2,500, M Drive Professional package for $900, piano black trim for $1,000, neck warmers for $650, front seat ventilation for $350, and the ~$5k Individual charge for its Mint Green paintwork. I’m guessing you’re not going to be surprised by the asking price, as a result:
