The BMW M6 Convertible is a monster in disguise. If you are looking for luxury, speed, and open air motoring, then this car is for you. Generally speaking luxury coupes and convertibles put looks and performance first. They stand for being flashy and fast. Beyond that, more importantly, luxury coupes also are an extension of their driver’s ability. A lot of people felt that the 6 series BMW was more computer oriented than driver oriented. With that said, BMW came up with a solution. The M6 is that solution.
The M6 is one part symphony and one part adrenaline rush. With one push of a button along the M6 console, the folding roof stores neatly in the trunk. By pressing the fabled M button, turning the traction control off, raising the shift meter to level 6 and holding the left paddle shifter for 10 seconds you can engage the BMW’s M6 launch code. Yes this vehicle has a launch code as if it were a space shuttle. You will think you are an astronaut after you punch the pedal to the floor. The tires will begin to smoke as they beg the pavement for grip. Once those tires catch the pavement the car will rip forward violently. Any driver will have to hold on and maintain firm control of the car because all 500 horses are being thrown at the rear wheel. Almost as soon as the car takes off a driver will have to shift to second gear and within a few ticks third gear. Launch code sometimes causes the car to veer coming off the line, so a driver has to be ready to settle the car back down under control.
