Spy photographers captured images of BMW’s next M4 hardtop convertible sporting minimal camouflage.

The new M4 borrows styling cues from the 3 Series, though BMW has given its new convertible a lower nose, flared arches and trademark M-GmbH side vents.

The rear sees a shape similar to that of the current 3 Series convertible though with the addition of an updated bumper and fourr exhausts.

The new M4 Coupe and Cabriowill be powered by an in-line six-cylinder turbo engine. The previous M3 used a four-litre V8 capable of 309kW/400Nm while the new M4 will have a lighter three-litre six-cylinder turbo capable of 317kW/550Nm (an increase of 8kW/150Nm).

The M4 range is expected to be offered with a choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch auto.
