BMW M6 (E64) Convertible 2006-2010

New BMW M6 Convertible
06-20-2006


Open-Air Motoring for the Ultimate Ultimate Driving Machine

• Features 5.0-litre V10 powerplant from Coupé
• Variable M Differential Lock ensures positive traction
• Zero to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds
• M Power button, Electronic Damper Control, new generation Dynamic Stability Control, Head-Up Display

The world-famous division of BMW, M GmbH follows its tradition of producing ultra-performance luxury vehicles by introducing its latest variant - the new BMW M6 Convertible. For the genuine motoring enthusiast, the M6 Convertible provides the open-air version of supreme power and high-performance.

The BMW M6 Convertible is a unique performer featuring the internationally acclaimed engine of the year – the 5.0-litre V10 – which produces an awesome 373 kW (507 bhp) and maximum torque of 520 Nm. With a suspension developed for supreme dynamics and a Sequential M Gearbox (SMG) complete with Drivelogic, this ultimate power unit turns the latest product from BMW M into an open sports car able to accelerate to 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds.

Measuring 4,871 mm in length, BMW M’s new high-performance convertible is more than 5 cm longer than the BMW 6 Series Convertible due to its rear air dam, optimised for supreme aerodynamic performance.

Typical of BMW’s M Cars, the M6 Convertible also features four exhaust tailpipes at the rear.

Fin-roof look with softtop either closed or open

The roof of the BMW M6 convertible is made of three layers. A special noise and heat insulating layer of polyurethane (PUR) foam comes between the rubberized outer layer and the interior roof lining. Thanks to its unique fin-roof look, the soft top boasts the same dynamic contours as the Coupe. The wide C-pillar is characterised by BMW’s famous Hofmeister ‘kick’.

A vertically positioned rear window can be electrically adjusted to move up or down, regardless of whether the roof itself is open or closed. The roof itself can be opened or closed either by remote control or via a button on the instrument panel with the entire process either way taking less than 25 seconds.

The interior: sports car character with proud style

The interior of the BMW M6 Convertible again boasts a wide range of stylish and practical features. Due its driver-oriented cockpit, all essential functions are positioned either on or around the steering wheel. The iDrive controller, housed on the centre console, is positioned for access by both driver and front passenger, and can be used to activate and operate a wide range of comfort functions via the Control Display. The Control Display comes with an enhanced menu guidance which also features MDrive management.

The speedometer and rev counter are housed in tube-shaped rings, the faces on the instrument dials are black, the numbers stand out clearly in white, and the indicator needles themselves come in traditional BMW M red.

Head-Up Display (HUD), as featured in the M5 and M6 Coupé, presents driving information essential to the driver directly in their field of vision, with the driver being able to determine at the touch of a button what information they wish to see – either the standard display or M specific details.

The V10 Convertible: a pledge to power and performance

Boasting a 373 kW V10 power unit, the BMW M6 Convertible is a pledge to power and performance. This fast-revving engine forms a perfect match with the optimum gear and final drive ratios, ensuring a perfectly dosed transmission of engine power to the drive wheels at the rear.

The entire power and performance concept behind this engine is derived directly from Motorsport; in the process of developing its maximum output, the V10 power unit revs all the way to 8,250 rpm, reaching engine speeds otherwise only found in a purebred racing car. More than 100 hp per litre is truly outstanding for a normally-aspirated engine. Variable double-VANOS camshaft control, in turn, ensures an optimum gas cycle at all times. Individual throttle butterflies on each cylinder with full electronic control give the V10 yet another highlight from its motor racing heritage.

High-speed power unit and seven-gear SMG

The high-speed power unit offers supreme output in all situations and under all conditions. As fast acceleration also calls for a fast and precise gearshift, the BMW M6 Convertible comes as standard with BMW’s Sequential M Gearbox (SMG) complete with Drivelogic. Seven-speed SMG conveys the power of the engine to the rear wheels via the drivetrain, offering the driver the option to shift gears manually, if required with an extremely fast and efficient gearshift. At the same time the automated Drive function is available offering rapid but smooth cruising.

SMG is activated either via the selector lever or through gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.

SMG Drivelogic gives the driver no less than 11 different driving programmes allowing them to individually adjust the gearshift characteristics of SMG to their preferred style of motoring. Six of the 11 programmes can be pre-selected within the manual gearshift functions (S-mode), allowing the driver to shift gears by hand according to their personal preferences. The only exception is the Launch Control function which offers maximum acceleration from a standing start. The gearshift functions required for this purpose are completed automatically by the gearbox at the ideal point and with optimum slip control. The remaining five programmes are automatic and found in D-mode.

M’ for maximum muscle

Perfect interaction of the V10 power unit and seven-speed SMG gives the driver ultimate pleasure behind the wheel; acceleration from 0-100 km/h comes in 4.8 seconds with the standing-start kilometre completed in just 22.9 seconds. This supreme performance continues all the way to the car’s top speed limited electronically to 250 km/h.

Lap times on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring almost as fast as in the M6 Coupé confirm the supreme performance of its Convertible stable-mate.

Variable M Differential Lock and DSC with M Dynamic Mode

The variable, speed-sensing M Differential Lock gives the M6 Convertible supreme driving stability and optimum traction especially when accelerating out of a bend. Even in the most demanding situations, therefore, the differential provides a decisive edge in traction, for example, with the drive wheels running on surfaces varying extremely in their frictional coefficient. In such cases the M Differential Lock immediately builds up growing locking force with an increasing difference in speed between the two drive wheels, thus maintaining the car’s traction and pulling forces at all times.

The M6 Convertible features the new generation of BMW Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). While the first stage of DSC is designed for maximum driving safety, the M Dynamic Mode is appreciated above all by the performance oriented driver.

Electronic Damper Control (EDC) offers three control programmes, each enabling the driver to set the suspension to the desired mode ranging from sporting and firm to comfortable.

The P400 performance programme is automatically activated as soon as the engine is started and as its name indicates offers immediate output of 400 hp output. By pressing the Power Button, the full power and dynamism of the ten-cylinder engine can be called up.

High-performance brakes

Reflecting the cars outstanding performance, the M6 Convertible comes with a high-performance brake system featuring cross-drilled, weight-optimised compound brake discs. On the road, this means a stopping distance of just under 36 metres from 100 km/h and less than 140 metres from 200 km/h.

The two-stage brake display in the rear lights ensures extra safety and helps to prevent rear-end accidents; as soon as the driver applies the brakes hard, the illuminated area in the brake lights becomes larger than in a regular braking manoeuvre, indicating to motorists following to apply the brakes harder, too. A further safety feature is the very bright and fast-reacting LEDs in the bake lights not requiring any maintenance and free of wear.

Quality: the finest mix of materials

The perfect balance of weight also contributes to the superior driving characteristics of the M6 Convertible. This perfection in weight alignment is based on an intelligent mix of materials for the body-in-white, with the help of modern plastic materials of the highest quality. Despite their lower weight, these components are stiffer and stronger than comparable components made of conventional materials, ensuring not only precise driving dynamics but also optimum vibration control and a very high standard of crash safety.

Electronically controlled safety systems

The seat belts on all four seats come with belt force limiters. The integrated restraint systems on the front seats also feature belt latch tensioners, with two-stage frontal and side airbags reducing the risk of injury. These safety components are controlled and masterminded by the Advanced Safety Electronics (ASE), a safety and information system exactly determining the intensity of a collision and activating the restraint systems quickly and precisely when they are required.

Pete should be getting me some packets on this direct from the factory soon.

He said they'll start taking orders by the time their new dealer is finished. Must say, it doesn't look too different from the 1st shots.

I prefer the coupe over this, but I wouldn't mind getting this anyway.

Weight?

The color is disgusting, just as bad as with the mediapics of the M6 Coupé. If it was just blue, black or silver or something I'd put it as a wallpaper, but not with this bad color.

Videos, same color : one, two and three

BMW M6 Convertible #2

Christmas is coming early this year, as BMW and Neiman Marcus partner to create the ultimate driving fantasy. BMW is offering, exclusively through the legendary Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, the 2007 Limited Edition Individual M6 Convertible. The luxury convertible comes with a custom Ruby Black exterior finish accented with an interior with Piano Black trim elements, power sports seats wrapped in our custom Gold Brown shade of supple BMW Individual Merino leather, and M-radial spoke alloy wheel. The car also comes fully equipped with an incredible 11-speaker Surround Sound stereo and six-disc CD changer. Only 50 of these custom-made automobiles, including the once-in-a-lifetime driving experience, will be available for purchase in this year's Christmas Book for $139,000.

As if the car itself wasn't enough, BMW is offering these fortunate fifty Neiman Marcus customers the pinnacle of the "ultimate driving experience." Each gift opportunity features an exclusive European adventure in which the purchaser takes delivery of their new M6 Convertible directly from the factory and drives on to tour the Bavarian countryside. And for the serious BMW-enthusiast, each customer will have the opportunity to meet with the automaker's famous car designers, and be given a private tour of the BMW factory in Munich. Also included in the package are two round-trip business class tickets on Lufthansa® to Munich, Germany, gourmet meals, and luxurious accommodations for four nights. Upon completion of the trip, their new vehicle will be shipped back to the States for immediate delivery. The trip is scheduled for Spring 2007.

Bold and uncompromising, the BMW Individual M6 Convertible stands alone. The unmistakable roar of its 5.0-liter, V-10 engine delivering 500 horsepower at your command and the precision handling, M Variable Differential Lock, and Electronic Damping Control make every trip extraordinary. Its on-board computer, GPS navigation, and Voice Command System merge driver and auto into one intelligent entity. At the heart of this incredible machine is a Formula 1 inspired, V-10 engine with 10 individual throttle butterflies capable of revving up to 8,250 rpm thanks to its sophisticated design and knock control systems. Coupled to a seven-speed Sequential Manual Transmission with Drivelogic®, it can launch you from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 exhilarating seconds.

A photo and description of the Limited Edition M6 Convertible appears on page 97 of the 2006 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. The opportunity to learn more and order this magnificent machine and experience begins at 12 noon EDT on Wednesday, October 18th when you call 1-866-303-2696. Interested buyers are encouraged to program their speed dial now. After all, who wouldn't want to be first in line for this year's hottest Christmas gift?
