BOUNDARIES ARE THERE TO BE OVERCOME.

Driving dynamics and efficiency, combined in the BMW M6 Convertible.

In the BMW M6 Convertible, the full-bodied rumble of the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder, cutting-edge assistance systems and a suspension with motor racing DNA go together to blur the boundaries between roads and race tracks. At least until the softtop is opened and rays of sunshine fall on the luxurious interior. Then it's the boundaries between an automobile and a high-power speed boat that begin to blur.

7-SPEED M DOUBLE-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION WITH DRIVELOGIC.

The M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative double-clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-revving engines. It comes with traction-optimised automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance, as well as the Automatic Start/Stop function. It can be controlled either automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the M leather steering wheel or the gear selector in the centre console.
The M double-clutch transmission makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without an interruption in tractive force. This is due to two subtransmissions, each with its own clutch, which continuously relay the power of the engine to the wheels by overlapping the clutches. The gear shift strategy is also optimised with the help of existing navigation data – the M double-clutch transmission, for example, downshifts proactively ahead of bends. The additional Launch Control function, which allows maximum acceleration from a standing start, offers an extremely dynamic driving experience: shifting gears at high speed is possible without using the clutch, and without any interruption in the power delivery.
Regardless of whether the driver selects the automatic ("D" mode) or manual ("S" mode) mode, Drivelogic always offers three shifting options: extremely sporty, comfortable and efficient.

COMPETITION PACKAGE.

An unadulterated racing feel: the Competition package delivers enhanced engine output, more direct steering and a specially tuned suspension to ensure the BMW M6 Convertible brings an even higher level of performance to the road.
The output of the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine jumps from 412 kW to 441 kW. This enhanced performance is achieved by raising the boost pressure in the upper range of revs. The sports exhaust system generates a particularly dynamic engine sound that is destined to thrill. On the racetrack and in everyday use, the specially tuned suspension and extremely dynamic direct steering ensure that every steering command is executed with maximum precision. The exclusive 20" M light alloy wheels Double-spoke style 601 M in Bicolour look with mixed tyres are extremely impressive, along with the Black Chrome-plated twin tailpipes of the sports exhaust system.

ACTIVE M DIFFERENTIAL.

The Active M Differential variably distributes the drive torque between the two rear wheels to optimise traction and driving stability during dynamic lane changing or accelerating out of curves, when making curves at high speeds or on roads with uneven surfaces, including on snow, gravel and ice. It even provides precise handling during extreme lateral acceleration. The constant, smooth adjustment of the differential lock harmonises the vehicle's driving performance, improving control in extreme driving situations.
Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels. The system, which was developed for motor sports, is connected to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) via an electronic control unit. It proactively provides the perfect use of locking action between 0 and 100 percent, neutralising even the finest differences in torque between the rear wheels – without the tendency to understeer. The Active M Differential provides optimal grip as well as great directional stability and perfect handling, and it converts virtually all of the engine's drive power into acceleration.

M CARBON CERAMIC BRAKE.

The M Carbon ceramic brake is a result of the transfer of technologies from the motor sport industry. The application of an innovative carbon fibre compound ceramic makes the braking power even more direct and improves brake-fade stabilisation. It is also non-corrosive, very resistant to abrasion, tolerates more heat and contributes to a lower vehicle weight. Its lightweight construction reduces rotating and unsprung mass, improving acceleration, responsiveness and overall handling, but also increasing the driving dynamics and traction, improving suspension comfort and reducing fuel consumption.
With its unusually large brake discs (front 410 mm, rear 393 mm), six-piston fixed callipers at the front and one-piston floating callipers at the rear, the M Carbon ceramic brake is fit for the race track thanks to its very high heat resistance even over long periods of use. A perforated and ventilated brake disc ring guarantees significantly enhanced responsiveness in wet conditions and more powerful heat dissipation. The M Carbon ceramic brake is easy to recognise, thanks to its matt Gold-coloured brake callipers featuring the classic M logo.
Due to the material-specific characteristics, situation- and use-dependent functional noises may occur, particularly on wet surfaces shortly before the vehicle comes to a standstill.

RACING CHARACTERISTICS.

There's always a faster car. And here it is. The BMW M6 Convertible encapsulates the BMW M GmbH philosophy. After all, power is one thing − transforming it into an incomparable driving sensation is quite another. High-tech materials such as aluminium, ceramics and carbon are combined with expertise and racing DNA. Engineers become enthusiasts when they pursue the goal of creating the most exciting experience possible involving petrol and asphalt under an open sky.

M DRIVE.

M Drive allows for the individual configuration of personal driver profiles from comfortable gliding all the way up to a sporty and highly responsive set-up for use on the racetrack. Activating either of the two saved profiles (and all of the settings saved with them) is as simple as touching one of the M buttons integrated into the multifunction steering wheel at any time. The pre-set configurations can be adjusted individually via the iDrive menu.
The M driving dynamics buttons, for adjusting all of the individually configurable drive train and suspension functions, are arranged on the centre console around the gear lever. The driver can individually select the DSC mode or adjust the engine's performance characteristics, the Dynamic Damper Control parameters, the M Servotronic steering characteristics, the shift options for the M double-clutch transmission and the appearance of a Head-Up Display. In this way, a detailed vehicle set-up can be assembled – and saved by pressing and holding down one of the two M Drive buttons on the multifunction steering wheel.

BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGIES.

Whether the goal is maximum performance or minimum fuel consumption – for BMW, the focus is always on delivering quintessential BMW driving pleasure. BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy developed by BMW to minimise fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously increasing dynamics and driving pleasure.
