BMW claims zero-to-60-mph acceleration in 4.1 seconds with automatic transmission. We have tested the M6 ​​convertible and verified the number effectively, reaching 60 mph in 4.2 seconds blazing.


In our tests, the M6 ​​convertible slowed from 60 to zero mph in 108 feet, a very good result for a 4,495 pound car.


In our tests of the M6 ​​convoy, our driver noted that the car had “real capabilities” but offered little steering and suspension feedback so it was “hard to find and drive the car at its limit.” Mass and mass also hinder the ability of M6 to handle such precision instruments.

Can be moved

With customizable drive settings, adaptive suspension and optional manual transmission, the M6 ​​is equally suited for day-to-day or full-speed travel. But nothing slid on the M6 ​​mass, so agility took the back seat into a crazy – and exhilarating – acceleration of a straight line.
