The direct rival of the new Audi A3, the M235i Convertible, was just caught on shots in Germany, with the model wearing little camouflage at the front.
Fortunately, this is a great sign, as the high-end M23i Convertible was rumored numerous times, this round in Germany, showing that the model will be launched at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, this October.
The model caught here is wearing a fantastic Melbourne Red Metallic finish, coming with a fabric roof, just like its predecessor, the 1-Series Cabriolet.
More than that, the BMW 2-Series Cabrio is standing on its coupe platform, wearing some styling cues also similar with the aforementioned version.
As far as the engine goes, we might be talking here about a 3.0-liter inline-six turbocharged unit, the same found on the M4 Coupe and M3 Sedan.
The unit develops 322 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, with the sports car to reach the 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds, when hooked to the 8-speed sport automatic.
