The 2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible, a car that was only introduced to us at the start of the year, is about to get its second tuning program courtesy of Hartge, following in the footsteps of the work done by Hamann, which made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month.

The scope of Hartge’s program may not catch the uninitiated at first glance, but it’s still significant enough to warrant some attention, something that we think was an intentional move done by the German tuning firm to maintain the car’s extravagant yet aggressive look. Among the items equipped to the new 6-Series Cabrio include a stainless steel sport exhaust system, lowering springs that drops the car’s ride height by 30mm in the front and 25mm in the rear, and a set of 19" or 21" alloy wheels.

Always the type to leave their imprint on their works, Hartge gave the interior of the 6-Series Convertible new aluminum pedals, special floor mats, and a number of Hartge emblems, including one on the steering wheel and on the front and rear where the BMW logo used to plastered on.

Under the hood, Hartge did an engine conversion the 6-Series Convertible’s 4.4-liter V8 engine, remapping the car’s ECU to spike the output from the standard 400 horsepower and 450 lb/ft of torque all the way up to a mouth-watering 490 horsepower and 531 lb/ft of torque.

Well, it’s a good thing that it has an impressive dressed-up interior and an efficient engine specification. Anyway, I have to be honest that it didn’t really look great on its exterior looks.

I noticed the interior touch of this 6-series is so cool on it. However, I think it is better if they use a lighter body paint on its exterior. Anyway, I’m so impressed on its engine specification.

For some reason, I’m not so impressed with its exterior detailing but when it comes to its interior, I must say that it truly looks very striking and awesome for it seems so comfortable.

I’m glad that it had an impressive engine and horsepower, and as for the looks of this one, I have to agree with them that it is not really so impressive.

I’m impressed with its engine and horsepower, and even though it seems so dangerous on a convertible car, I can say that I still find it very fun! smiley Anyway, I think they should enhance the looks of this one.

Impressive interior touch, it is definitely looks so cozy and comfortable on that in spite of having an aesthetic design, and I’m glad that it also had a striking engine performance.

I have to agree with them, that even if it is absolutely looks like an ordinary convertible car and so simple on its styling, I must say that the engine that it had and its cozy and comfortable interior is already stunning and can beat them all. smiley

Sure it can catch attentions, but for me it just like any other convertible cars. But I am sure that this BMW has something to boast against their opponent. The size, the horsepower and some of the designs also. I love the wheels but it is more cool if it is back or gray in color.

490 horsepower for a convertible car is I think too dangerous for it, but I must say that I’m quite impressed with the fact that it’s so fun to drive, and even though it only had a simple platform and styling it was still oozing with an appeal.
