With its V8 power and super-stiff chassis the last 2-door coupe to be branded M3 is a breath-taking experience. The sophisticated 3-piece roof works very well and folds away without leaving a car with awkward proportions.
The BMW M3 Convertible is a bigger and heavier car than the previous model and gives the impression of a Grand Tourer rather than a sports car. While the power gains suggest it has turned into a muscle car the chassis remains nimble and the high revving engine is far from lazy. In a way it has grown up; it’s more luxurious and capable than ever before, however, it is considerably more expensive.
