BMW released the specifications and pricing for the 2008 M6 Coupe and Convertible. . Aside from the handsome carbon-fiber-roofed M6 Coupe, the M6 Convertible also benefits from updates that the 2008 6 Series—the vehicle which these M vehicles are based on—received for the new model year. These revisions includes subtle styling enhancements, updated interior controls and details, revised exterior lighting, new standard and optional equipment and enhanced iDrive features for greater flexibility. Pricing start from $100,075 for the Coupe version and from $105,875 for the Convertible version.
The M6 Coupe offers true supercar performance with a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds (SMG model tested) and a top speed that is electronically limited to155mph. The M6 Convertible accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, proving that open-air pleasures come at little sacrifice at BMW’s M division.
The 2008 M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible share styling cues that clearly identify it as the latest in the line from BMW M. The aggressive and functional front air dam, lightweight five-spoke 19-inch wheels and massive compound/cross-drilled brakes as well as the rear air diffuser and four round tailpipes make their presence known on the M6.
The M6 Coupe features a full carbon fiber roof panel that not only reduces vehicle weight and improves handling, but it also offers a visual statement about BMW’s commitment to performance. Meanwhile, the M6 Convertible combines BMW M’s total performance philosophy and motorsports technology with the luxurious elegance and functionality of the BMW 6 Series with its 2+2 seating, generous trunk space and a multi-layered soft-top to provide the open-air driving enthusiast with one of the most unique experiences on the road.
