This is the brand new BMW M6 Convertible

You’ve seen the new BMW M6 Coupe… here’s the BMW M6 convertible. All the stats for the coupe apply to the convertible, except that this one is a tick slower. And we really mean just a tick:

As such, BMW quotes a 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds for the Coupe, and 4.3 seconds for the Convertible, 0-124mph in 12.6 seconds (13.1s for the drop-top) and the option of a 189mph top speed with the ‘M Driver’s Package’.

So which is it going to be for you? Coupe? Or Convertible?

This is the brand new BMW M6 Coupe

We’ve seen the new BMW M5… now let’s look at the newly announced BMW M6:

If M was a soup, BMW has ladled every last drop into this, apparently. Assembled ladies and gentlemen, meet the all-new BMW M6.

It has been given, says BMW, a “generous dose of M feeling”, by which of course, it means a cosmically powerful engine and lots of oversteer.

It’s the second M car to get the very highly pumped 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine - first seen on the rather smashing new M5 - and therefore boasts 552bhp and 502lb ft of torque. That’s more power than the Jaguar XKR-S. Power, naturally, goes to the rear wheels via a seven-speed M double clutch gearbox with launch control.

As such, BMW quotes a 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds for the Coupe, and 4.3 seconds for the Convertible, 0-124mph in 12.6 seconds (13.1s for the drop-top) and the option of a 189mph top speed with the ‘M Driver’s Package’.

They’re both so gorgeous that we gave the coupe and convertible their own photosets. See the convertible here.
