We've seen a few spy shot packages featuring the upcoming BMW 4 Series Convertible already, but never with the car quite so naked as in this latest batch. Nabbed just outside the BMW Nürburgring workshop in Germany, this Melbourne Red 4 Series also shows the M Sport package for the first time.

With all of the cladding removed, we can see that the convertible shares the 4 Series coupe's great-looking nose and front end, though the resolution of that folding hard top into the rear bodywork remains a bit harsh.

With the 4 Series coupe now completely official, we have a pretty good idea of what the powertrain lineup for the 'vert will be. We'll be pretty surprised if a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo aren't the go-to engines at launch. Production of the droptop is likely to begin at the end of the year, so start bugging your local BMW dealer.

      BMW should never have gone with the retractable hard top. It is bulky and awkward. I would take an A5 convertible over this any day.

      Virtually no different from the 2007 E93. The hood looks a little too bulged. It's hard to get excited about this car. The new M3 on the other hand...

      Why do they bother to add disguises, they look the same.

      Same unattractive metal folding top. Might as well go canvas.

      Hmmm ... interesting. It looks like the camouflage covering front fenders is NOT covering the stupid boomerang. So, the choices will be - you either get the proper roof BUT also the stoopid boomerang - you get sliced roof (which you don't want) but stoopid boomerang is gone Meh, if you spend almost $60k you shouldn't be facing "but I really didn't want ..." dilemmas. Really, BMW? What's wrong with front fenders of a 6 series? Or even 5 series? Or even 3 series fer fook's sake?

        OK, my bad. Second last picture shows boomerangs. Forget about it.

      Wish they'd lose the retractable roof. Adds weight always looks a bit odd and more stuff to break.

        Convertibles aren't known to be lightweight soft or hard top (with maybe the exception of a miata).
