From the UK, we bring you a new photo gallery of the 2015 BMW M235i Convertible.
The 2015 BMW M235i Convertible is the pinnacle of the performance models available with the 2 Series Convertible. Like the M235i coupe, it features a higher-output M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline six, mated to either an 8-speed sport automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
A cooling system, engine management and engine sound tuning, all of which have been exclusively customized to the requirements of the BMW 2 Series M Performance models, complete the picture. Maximum power of 320 hp is generated between 5,800 and 6,000 rpm, from a displacement of 3.0 liters. The maximum torque of 330 lb-ft is available between 1,400 and 4,500 rpm. With the standard eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission with Launch Control function, the BMW M235i Convertible accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
It is also available with a six-speed manual gearbox with dry sump lubrication. Its short-throw action provides extra-sporty shifting.
60 mph is reached from a standstill in five seconds flat. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
Until the BMW M2 Convertible arrives – if it arrives – the M235i Convertible is one of the most fun cabriolets you can buy, one that delivers on the promise of the Ultimate Driving Machine.
