BMWNA Press Release; The 500 horsepower, seven-speed SMG 2+2
Woodcliff Lake, NJ - June 21, 2006... BMW M announces the arrival of the ultimate 2+2, open air driving experience - the new BMW M6 Convertible. Like its Coupe stablemate, the M6 Convertible combines a 500 horsepower V10 and the seven-speed Sequential M Gearbox with Drivelogic. It also combines the luxury and elegance of the 6 Series Convertible with true super-car performance - 0 - 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph. With production beginning this September, the 2007 M6 Convertible will begin arriving in U.S. showrooms this fall.
The M6 Convertible has all of the performance capabilities of the M6 Coupe in addition to the styling cues that clearly identify this car as the work of BMW M - the aggressive and functional front air dam, the light and open 19-inch wheels that showcase the large compound/cross-drilled brakes as well as the tail-end treatment featuring air-diffuser and four round tailpipes. It combines it with the elegance and functionality of the 6 Series Convertible - the luxurious 2+2 seating, the generous trunk and the multi-layered soft-top. This rare combination will provide the open-air enthusiast with one of the most unique driving experiences on the road.
