Anyone who wanted to know what the new BMW 3-Series
Convertible would look only had to screw their eyes up a little and place a
finger over the roof of the Coupe in a picture. Et voila, your own instant spy

What we have here is the finished article, a proper
shot of the 3-SeriesConvertible that will make its debut at the Detroit
motorshow early next month.

Centrepiece of the new 3-Series Convertible is the
retractable three-piece metal roof, which is BMW’s first try at the
coupe-convertible market.

As well as the roof letting the sunshine in, BMW has
also developed a special coating for its leather seats which reflects infra-red
radiation to ensure the seats stay up to 20 degrees Celsius cooler in direct
sunlight compared to untreated seats.

We’ll be there to give you the full details of the car
in the metal and leather, but we can tell you ahead of the show that it will
initially go on sale in the UK with 2.5- and 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol
engines, the latter in twin turbo 335i specification.

Prices will start at £33,030 for the 325i and £37,895 for the 335i.

The 325i will see of 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds and
reaches 152mph, while the 335i is limited to 155mph and does 0-62mph in just
5.8 seconds.

Expect to see 3-Series Convertibles parked outside an
estate agent’s near you by the summer of 2007.
