Our trusty spy photographers have been at it again, snagging these first images of the forthcoming BMW M4 Convertible without camouflage on its retractable roof and rear deck. You'll recall that this is not the first time we've seen the followup to the M3 Convertible, but that the last batch of images we had were encumbered by a lot more camouflage – this car is virtually naked by comparison.

Not surprisingly, the M4 looks to share its folding hardtop design with the standard 4 Series droptop, and it should operate in a similar manner as well. It's no surprise, but it looks like BMW is going to try and make the transition from M4 Coupe to M4 Convertible as effortless as previous efforts converting the M3 to an M3 Convertible. That should mean that below the beltline, this car is nearly identical to the coupe we saw in Detroit.

As for the camo'd features on these spy photos, the hood, front fascia, rear fascia, quarter panels, side sills and mirrors have all been shown on the M4 Coupe, and don't really bear mentioning. There's been no word of just where the M4 Convertible will make its debut, although considering the lack of disguise on this car, Geneva seems like a likely destination.

      Funny, I saw my first 4 coupe earlier today and I was pleasantly surprised. It's definitely an improvement over the outgoing 3-series coupe, which wasn't an ugly car to begin with. All we need now is a skilled Photoshopper to paste the roof portion of these images onto the ones of the undisguised M4 Coupe et voila, you'll have the final M4 Convertible model.

      What an awesome car! Drop the top and listen to the incredible straight six growl. The ///M cars do so many things well.

      I think it looks decent enough,but I don't think it is worth the 75k that BMW will command for this vehicle.

      haha the M3 is now the sedan and the M4 is a "new" coupeā€¦ oh wait, until its a 'gran coupe', what a joke!

      Horrible Horrible side profile. This car looks great from the front and back, but that hardtop roof looks soooo bad from the side.

      The rear quarters just don't work with the rest of the car.

      That thing looks good in black, with the top up. Even the bits of camo seem almost decorative!
