New BMW 6-Series Convertible Unveiled


BMW revealed the new model of 6 Series Convertible in the midst of 2010 Los Angeles motorshow, even though they didn’t bother bringing it to the show!

But you don’t have to see it in person to realize it is awesome. The car gets a fresh new design, new powertrains, and tweaked chassis and suspension.

But the best thing of all is the new design which is like 110 percent better than the old model. It even gets a new “fin” architecture fabric roof. Opening the roof takes 19 seconds, with closing taking 24 seconds. Both operations can be activated while on the move at speeds of up to 25mph.
