BMW logo with "The Ultimate Driving Machine" tagline.
Merging the refined style and fiery spirit of the legendary 6 Coupe with the open-air freedom of a convertible, the stunning 6 Convertible seizes the imagination as boldly as it captures the eye. A muscular 4.4-liter V-8 power plant delivers 325 horsepower and a riveting 6-second launch to 60 mph*. A smooth 6-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission and BMW's Active Roll Stabilization (ARS) ensure dynamic performance and level cornering on even the tightest curves. With the top up, the convertible roof gracefully mirrors the pleasing proportions and aggressive lines of the Coupe. With a push of the button, the heavens are revealed and a host of convertible technologies go to work to ensure the most comfortable and exuberant drive under the stars. The 6 Convertible. A new perspective on pleasure.
