Another week and another special project by the folks at BMW Abu Dhabi. The Middle East-based dealership has made a name for itself with daring and provocative BMW projects, and the one seen here today makes no exception.
The base model is a 435i Convertible which gets a makeover and some power upgrades. First, the beautiful cabriolet was adorned with a series of M Performance Parts – front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts and air inlets. All of those are painted in orange to match the Sakhir Orange interior and the funky vinyl wrap which spans across the hood, sides and trunk.
An Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system will offer a great sound at low revs and a deep growl as soon as you floor the gas pedal.
Speaking of performance, BMW Abu Dhabi won’t say whether the ECU has been remapped, so if we assume it’s still in standard form then the 435i Cabrio with the 8-speed automatic transmission will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds – thanks to its 306 horsepower and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque at its disposal.
