Naturally-aspirated V10 engine
Outstanding performance guaranteed.
The naturally-aspirated V10 engine in the
BMW M6 Convertible.
Even the lightest touch on the accelerator is enough for the engine to show its colossal power. Five litre capacity and 373 kW (507 hp) produce a performance potential normally found only in motor racing. Maximum revs reach an impressive figure of 7,750 rpm, with the engine breathing powerfully through ten throttle valves. In combination with the double-Vanos camshaft control system it responds without hesitation. The high-performance electronics system with ion stream knock control enables the engine's potential to be fully exploited at high revs.
Light in weight, heavy in performance.
The performance weight of the BMW M6 Convertible.
Thanks to the innovative use of high-strength lightweight materials, the BMW M6 Convertible achieves an unbeatable power-to-weight ratio of only 3.95 kilograms per hp. And the result is first-class performance. For the M6 Convertible driver, this means unrestricted agility and higher speeds when cornering. The V10 engine with its high-rev concept together with the aluminium chassis are responsible for this successful formula.
Formula One gear shifts.
The seven-speed SMG Drivelogic in the
BMW M6 Convertible.
Extremely fast gear changes without having to reduce speed, decrease engine power or use a clutch are made possible thanks to the seven-speed SMG Drivelogic. The driver can choose between using paddles on the steering wheel or the shift lever on the central console. Maximum acceleration is made possible by Launch Control, which uses the optimum range of revs to shift through the gears automatically.
Dynamic Stability Control
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) on the
BMW M6 Convertible.
On a slippery road or during a sudden swerve, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) provides the driver with optimum support. This driver's assistant only intervenes with the engine's electronics system during extreme situations, reducing the torque and activating the brakes individually. The two stages of the DSC can be set in the M Drive Manager. The first offers dynamic driving comfort, while the second allows for exceptionally sporting driving close to the physical limits by increasing the tolerance of longitudinal and lateral acceleration.
Ergonomics and safety
M Drive Manager
Your personal driving style.
The M Drive Manager in the BMW M6 Convertible.
The key properties, such as engine performance and shift programs, can be individually configured for optimum flexibility using the M Drive button. Via the M Drive control on the steering wheel, the preconfigured settings can be called up at the push of a button. Available settings include Digital Motor Electronics (DME), seven-speed SMG Drivelogic, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and M-specific Head-Up Display. This allows the mood of the BMW M6 Convertible to be perfectly adapted to that of the driver.
M Head-Up Display
The Head-Up Display with M indicator in the
BMW M6 Convertible.
The Head-Up Display, fitted as standard, projects the speed, navigation direction and Check Control data directly into the driver's field of vision. Pressing a button activates the M-specific indicator. In addition to the speed, the Head-Up Display also displays the SMG gear currently selected via the variable rev count with shift lights. Projection at eye level means that drivers are free to concentrate on the road ahead. The benefits: greater safety and a unique driving experience.
The perfect setting.
M seats in the BMW M6 Convertible.
A sporting driving style provides a challenge for man and technology. The precise fit of the M seats offers the driver the best possible body support even in extreme curves. Settings for backrest width and thigh support can be varied, as can the settings for the seat heating system. The lumbar support with its variable air cushion system can be adjusted to provide optimum support for the back muscles. All settings can be individually stored.
Cleverness you can rely on.
Intelligent safety (ASE) in the BMW M6 Convertible.
A total of six airbags, fitted as standard, offer the driver and front passenger outstanding all-round protection. Yet even more important than the number of airbags is their control system. Advanced Safety Electronics (ASE), the intelligent safety system, ensures that each bag is inflated to the correct degree to minimise the effects of an impact. The same system can also activate the seatbelt tensioners, deactivate the central locking and cut the fuel pump's activity.
Equipment and accessories
M wing mirrors on the BMW M6 Convertible.
With its distinctive design the M wing mirror underlines the sporting appearance of the BMW M6 Convertible. But here too, form follows function: the streamlined contours optimised in the wind tunnel help to reduce aerodynamic lift on the front axle.
Upholstery and trims in the BMW M6 Convertible.
Even before you enter, the white glow of the illuminated M6 Convertible entry sills signals the prestigious interior design. Door mirrors, central console, armrests and, on request, the instrument panel are all finished in the finest Merino leather. The M range's typical interior trim of Piano Finish Black, Carbon Fiber Black, brushed aluminium or exquisite woods complete the exclusive ambience.
Bluetooth interface in the BMW M6 Convertible.
The separately available mobile phone cradle with Bluetooth interface in the central console enables drivers to use their mobile phone conveniently and safely, without the need for cables, even when travelling at high speeds. Voice Control is operated using the hands-free system. The phone is operated using the multifunction keys located on the steering wheel which can also be used to manage the telephone book, caller lists and other important data.
