BMW debut its latest high-performance car featuring the M badge: the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible at the New York Auto Show. The automaker recently released some of the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible photos, which will feature the same twin-turbo V8 as the recently announced M6 coupe. The 2013 BMW M6 Convertible turbocharged V8 has an impressive 560 hp. Unfortunately, a traditional manual transmission isn’t offered for the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible specs, but BMW says that it could offer one if customers demand it, just as with the M5.
On the outside, the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible exterior receives only subtle upgrades over the recently redesigned 6 Series. The 2013 BMW M6 Convertible provides yet another option for buyers interested in the growing 6 Series lineup which will also soon include a 4-door sedan, dubbed the 6 Series Gran Coupe, which goes on sale nationwide this summer.
Fresh off of its New York auto show debut, BMW has announced the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible price. BMW said the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible price will be start at $113,995 when it arrives this June at U.S. dealers. The buyers will get plenty of extras for that 2013 BMW M6 Convertible price premium, including a 560 horsepower version of BMW’s 4.4L TwinPower V8 and an Active M Differential to transfer all that power to the pavement.
BMW says the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible 0-60 mph time can be acquired in a blistering 4.2 seconds. But despite all that performance potential, the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible is actually more eco friendly than the less powerful model it replaces. Compared to the outgoing V10-powered M6 Convertible, the new 2013 BMW M6 Convertible V8 model sips 30 percent less fuel and reduces C02 emissions by the same amount.
The 2013 BMW M6 Convertible engine has been equipped an Active M Differential that helps the car working with high precision and speed. The 2013 BMW M6 Convertible control unit is connected with the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system via FlexRay high-speed data transfer technology and constantly cross-checks the data collected by its sensors with the feedback from DSC; it then uses this information to calculate the locking force required to deliver optimum traction and stability.
The data recorded by DSC sensors is also passed on if the stability control system is in MDM mode or is switched off. The locking force within the differential can be varied continuously between 0 and 100%, meanwhile the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible ABS system retains full functionality in all situations.
The 2013 BMW M6 Convertible specs also includes a host of innovative new technology features, most of which made their debut earlier this year at the Geneva Auto Show in new M6 coupe. According to BMW, technologically advanced features include the latest version of the automaker’s iDrive infotainment system, an “M” head-up display that projects the car’s stats on the windshield, and the enthusiast-oriented Dynamic Damper Control system, which allows the 2013 BMW M6 Convertible drivers to dial in their suspension settings based on their driving style.
