BMW M6 convertible
I may as well have been driving for the chequered flag at Daytona instead of wheeling along the narrow, twisting two-lane roads of southern France. That’s how competently the BMW M6 Convertible moves flat out. But unlike pure racers, this convertible also cruises like a well-mannered touring vehicle. Key to the car’s M classification is its 373 kW (500-hp) V10. That’s attached to a seven-speed transmission that you can drive as a manual or automatic. Despite the extra dose of high performance, exterior styling and inside amenities vary little from the standard model.
