It was a little over a week ago when our spies caught a prototype of the new 4 Series Convertible with the roof up and now they’ve just spotted a different vehicle in the hands of a BMW test driver while enjoying some droptop motoring. Even though temperatures were well below 0 degrees Celsius, – 15°C or +5°F to be exact – that didn’t stop the driver from putting the fabric roof down to make the most of the winter sun.
To protect from the cold winds as much as possible, the driver had all four windows up as well as the wind deflector. Interestingly, BMW decided to block the view to the rear compartment by installing what looks like a parcel shelf you see on cars that have a tailgate. Hiding between the trunk and the rear seats was the folded soft top replacing the heavy and cumbersome metal roof of the previous 4 Series Convertible.
