Back in June, BMW released all the details about their new M6 convertible, except one – price. Well, the mystery has been solved and those of you who want to own one of the fastest production drop tops in the world can get it at the bargain price of $105,095, including shipping. As a comparison, the carbon fiber, fixed roof model will only set you back $96,795, with shipping and the highfalutin Neiman Marcus Individual M6 will liberate $139,000 from your corporate expense account. However, it deserves note that included in the price of the M6, new owners will also get to partake in a one-day M driver training course at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The cabrio will still come equipped with the highly touted 5-liter V10, seven-speed SMG and all the geek-til-ya-freak gizmos that come standard on the M6. As a matter of fact, the only difference between the 'normal' M6 and its beheaded stepchild, aside from the obvious, is a slight performance penalty due to the added weight of the convertible's mechanisms, which makes the cabrio lap the Nurburgring a few ticks below the coupe's time.

      You are talking supercar figures. The M6 Convertible IS the world's fastest production Convertible in the world.

      By the way, somebody post a link with spy pics for the new 3 series (e90) convertible.
      Thanks

      Those of you that can buy it at that price tag should consider yourselves lucky. In Norway, the taxes for an M6 comes in at 159,000 dollars. Add that to what BMW charges to get the price tag. 100,000 dollars won't get you more than a 330i.

      Besides the weight gain I think it would also suffer the penalty all convertibles do - the loss of structural rigidity. That can make a big difference in the handling department.

      There's some stipulation that allows the Gallardo and F430 from being called "production" cars. Since the M6 is based off of the 6 Series, it falls into the "production" car category. Its a beautiful car, though. I would not mind owning the "fastest production drop top." Black, please!

      That is just too much money, at the local BMW dealer near me the M6 coupe is at deep discounts due to lack of sale.

        only lack of sales because of a high sticker price. Mind you it still is a BEAUTIFUL car...wish i had one
