The BMW M6 Convertible - the highlight of BMW’s stand at the British International Motorshow - goes on sale in September, priced at £86,400. Powered by the 5.0-litre V10 International Engine of the Year and using a host of F1-derived technology, the BMW M6 Convertible combines all the performance of the M6 Coupé but with the added luxury of open-air motoring.
The new M6 Convertible uses BMW’s 4,999cc V10 powerplant to develop 507hp. This powers the car from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds before going on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. Unchecked, the car could continue to 200mph. Its sheer performance, alongside the engine’s technological advancements, are just two of the reasons why the worldwide judging panel of the International Engine of the Year voted the M6’s 5.0-litre V10 engine the world’s best for the second year in succession - a ‘first’ in the history of the awards.Published 29 August 2006
