The innovations follow one another at the manufacturer of Munich. After the revelation of the M3 and M4, then, a few days later, the 4 Series Cabriolet, BMW is preparing to put the spotlight on the M4 Cabriolet. While waiting to discover it, our photographers came face to face with one of the prototypes.
