Second day of the 2017 Detroit Auto Show brings a series of BMWs adorned with parts from the BMW M Performance catalog. One of them is a 440i Convertible, painted in the unique BMW Individual Smoked Topaz color and featuring a wide variety of exterior and interior M Performance Parts.

The beautiful cabriolet is equipped with the BMW M Performance Power & Sound Kit which, for the first time, comes bundled with a higher flowing, valve controlled exhaust for maximum performance and exhilaration. The new kit also features engine tuning software and an electronically controlled valve exhaust system that is actuated in Sport/Sport+ modes via the driving experience control button.

The kit also provides faster acceleration: 0.2 seconds faster than the standard 340i/440i model from 0 to 60 mph.

Next on the upgrades list a set of new M Performance Wheels, fully polished and available in 19 inches size.

The usual black kidney grille and carbon fiber side mirror caps are also present.

Inside, BMW proudly presents their M Performance Steering Wheel with a digital display and shifting indicators. For the first time, we were able to see live the new center console, “dressed” in alcantara and surrounded by carbon fiber. Things like a carbon fiber DCT shifter and aluminum pedals with the ///M branding are also present.

The Smoked Topaz is also an interesting color choice which seems to vary under different lighting conditions, from a chocolate-like color to a vibrant violet.

    Nice, but it looks like no LCI for Detroit (despite my expectations).

      In the last few years, BMW has already announced the models before the show. So there are no more surprises at rhe show. Either you see it before, or you don’t.

  2. Jackson says:

    That alcantara steering wheel is gorgeous. Should be standard on all M cars in my opinion

    I smoked a Topaz once, gave me a headache. So can we look forward to Fried Escort? Burnt Taurus? Flaming Pinto? Guess that one’s been done already. Gorgeous colour, by any name.

    O to 60 tells you more about the gearbox,let’s have 0 to 100 mph figures.
