SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Recent spy video from the Nürburgring reassured the world that a 2009 BMW M3 convertible is on its way. And here it is.

Like the 2008 M3 coupe, the new convertible will benefit from an all-aluminum 4.0-liter V8 rated at 420 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

BMW claims that 85 percent of the M3 coupe's peak torque is available across a rev range of 6,500 rpm, and says it'll run from zero to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds.

Previous spy photos revealed the BMW's new retractable hardtop, which replaces the outgoing M3's soft top.

Following the launch of the M3 coupe, the M3 convertible, shown here in artist-altered photographs, is expected to go on sale in late 2008. A new M3 sedan will join the family as well.

What this means to you: The wait for top-speed, top-down BMW fun is almost over.
