The BMW 335i Cabrio, the fourth generation of BMW's 3 Series four-seat convertible makes its world debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on 7 January 2007. A new dimension in the world of motoring comes with the introduction of a retractable hardtop for the first time in a BMW. Made of lightweight steel, the three-piece roof opens in just 22 seconds and folds smoothly into the boot of BMW’s newest convertible. The new roof structure ensures a lower level of noise even at high speeds while the ultra-stiff platform provides extreme torsional strength for rigidity and incredible handling inherent to all BMWs.

The new BMW 335i retains all the elegance and unique style that is characteristic of the 3 Series with the roof either up or down. The long and sleek hood, low shoulder line and the broad-shouldered rear end make the new BMW 3 Series Convertible unmistakable from any angle. And with the new retracting hardtop, it offers performance, comfort, safety, and value unique in its segment.

Two versions will be available in America. The powerful 335i Convertible features BMW’s newest inline six-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers and an intercooler for 300 hp, thanks to high precision direct fuel injection with piezo injectors.

The BMW 335i Convertible accelerates to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds for the six-speed manual, and in 5.7 seconds for the six-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. Top speed is electronically-controlled to 130 mph, but vehicles equipped with the Sport Package, top speed is stated to be around at 155 mph.
