But it will be not possible to buy the new car until February 2015. Though, fans of the sports convertibles will be able to simultaneously order a charged version of the BMW M235i Cabrio range M Performance. The car presented at the Paris Motor Show in 2014, resembles in the form of a body with the shifted back cabin and powerful wheel arches to the classic model convertible with a rear-wheel drive.
