BMW chops M6

2006-06-20 17:31
As with the coupe version the M6 convertible is incredibly dynamic, incredibly open and obviously incredibly attractive.

This car combines supreme power and performance with the fun of open-air motoring.

Yes, you get ten cylinders and five litres engine capacity, 373 kW and maximum torque of 520 Nm.

Together with sporty suspension conceived for supreme dynamics and the Sequential M Gearbox(SMG) complete with Drivelogic, this supreme power unit turns the large convertible from BMW M into an open sports car able to accelerate to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.

The M6 convertible completes the standing-start kilometre in 22.9 seconds and top speed is limited to 250 km/h.

The M6's roof opens and closes electrically either by remote control or by pressing a button in the instrument panel, the entire process in each case taking less than 25 seconds.

Pricing for the M6 Convertible will be from R1 160 000.
