According to BMW’s own figures, the 335i Convertible weighs a substantial 285kg more than the 335i Coupe. Most of this weight is attributed to the complex folding metal roof and the extra strengthening required to increase rigidity. There were suggestions that engineers could utilize a lighter carbon-fiber set-up, but recent spy shots reveal that the folding metal roof will remain.
Like the M3 Coupe, the Convertible version will feature the same aggressive front bar, vented bonnet, wider fenders and quad tailpipe arrangement. Beneath the hood is the same 420hp 4.0L V8 and expect to see most models equipped with BMW’s upcoming dual-clutch gearbox.
