The 503bhp BMW M4 Competition Convertible arrives in Singapore just as we are being told to expect more days of hot and sunny weather.

21 Jul 2022 | International News : Singapore

Can't take the sweltering weather we are getting these days? BMW Asia and Performance Munich Autos think they just might have the perfect thing to keep you looking forward to more sunny days: This, is the BMW M4 Competition Convertible, now available here in Singapore.

The BMW M4 Competition Convertible pairs a 503bhp six-cylinder motor with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. Power is then sent through BMW M's xDrive all-wheel drive system, for fully variable and super-smooth distribution of the engine's power between the front and rear wheels.

Panel bow softtop can open or close within 18 seconds
All this translates to a zero to 100km/h sprint time of just 3.7 seconds (The BMW M4 Competition Coupe will do the same in 3.9 seconds, mind).

Although if maximum grip is not your priority, switching over the car's setup to 4WD Sport mode will direct a greater proportion of the engine's drive to the rear wheels. Switch off the DSC system altogether and you'll set your BMW M4 Competition Convertible into a rear-wheel drive machine.

Up top, the BMW M4 Competition Convertible gets a panel bow softtop roof, said to combine the practical benefits of a retractable hardtop with the classically elegant aesthetic of a fabric hood.

M light-alloy wheels measuring 19-inches in diameter at the front axle and 20-inches at the rear come as standard
This softtop gets an electronically powered folding mechanism that can completely open or close the roof in just 18 seconds.

And boot space is not that much compromised either, standing at 385-litres with the roof up, and 300-litres with is folded away (Boot space in the M4 Coupe is 440-litres). If you need still more space for cargo, there's always the option to wait for the BMW M3 Touring to arrive here, which has a total of 500-litres of space in the back.

On the handling front, a double-joint spring strut at the front axle combines with a five-link suspensionsetup at the rear axle, equipped with BMW's Adaptive M suspension, and an Active M Differential at the rear axle, all thoroughly fussed over to reign in all that performance.

Heated M Carbon bucket seats are available as an option on the BMW M4 Competition Convertible
Electrically adjustable and heated M Sport seats and the Extended Merino leather trim come as standard on the BMW M4 Competition Convertible, although seat ventilation will have to be added as an option. The heated M Carbon bucket seats are also available here as an option.

If driving at night with the roof down is in your itinerary, neck warmers can also be selected in that options list.

The BMW M4 Competition Convertible will come with Adaptive LED Head lights equipped with BMW's Laserlight technology, while a host of BMW M Performance Parts are also optionally available from launch. The BMW M4 Competition Convertible starts from $563,888, just a hair more than the $545,888 the BMW M4 Competition Coupe is asking for (all prices as at 21 July 2022).
