2013 BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible launched in Australia image

BMW’s Australian division has recently announced that the M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible have been launched locally.

According to the German based automaker, the BMW M6 Coupe can now be bought in Australia from 292,500 AUD, while the BMW M6 Convertible is available from 308,500 AUD. Both models are getting the M steering wheel with two customizable M buttons, the carbon fiber trim on the center console, the 10.2-inch screen with the latest version of the iDrive and more. The M6 Coupe is getting a carbon fiber roof, just like the M3 did in the past, and this is reducing the weight of the model by 19.5 kg compared to the glass roof on the 650i Coupe.

Standard features on both the M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible include the internet connectivity, the lane departure warning system, the lane change system, the rear-view camera with surround view, the premium audio system, the seat heating and ventilation, the head-up display, LED headlights, M double-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels and more, including the brake energy regeneration and auto stop/start.

The new BMW M6 Coupe and the BMW M6 Convertible are powered by the same engine, the 4.4 liter turbocharged V8, which is producing a total output of 560 HP, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. BMW says that the M6 Coupe can do the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 4.2 seconds and the M6 Convertible in 4.3 seconds, but with the optional M Driver’s Package, the M6 can reach a top speed of 189 mph and 155 without it. BMW is expecting to sell 30 units of the M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible this year and 65 in 2013.
