On the other hand, the all new BMW 6 Series Convertible also made its debut, offering the gentlemanly drive of grand tourer, the open air pleasure of a convertible and the driving dynamics that has been the hallmark of BMWs. The new convertible comes as an all new model, sporting many improvements over the outgoing model, and is powered by a variety of engines from a 320 PS twin turbo inline-6 and a 407 PS V-8.

The new convertible gets a electric soft top roof with fin architecture. The multi-layer roof - which has been optimized in terms of its acoustic properties and structural rigidity - features improved thermal insulation and thus enables the new convertible to be used comfortably all year round, and opens in just 19 seconds.

The new 1 Series M Coupe and 6 Series Convertible are both available for order at BMW dealerships nationwide.
