The online configurator for the 2012 BMW M6 Convertible just went live on www.bmwusa.com

The 2012 BMW M6 Convertible will be the first of the three new M to arrive in US BMW Center showrooms. The M6 Convertible arrives this June and will be priced at $113,995 (including $895 Destination and Handling).

The M6 Convertible, as well as the coupe, is powered by a high revving 560 hp M TwinPower Turbo V8 mated to a 7-speed M-Double Clutch transmission (M-DCT). BMW said a manual option will be offered as well, but at the moment, it is not available in the online configurator.

0 to 62 mph is achieved in 4.3 seconds while the spring to 124 mph (200km/h) takes only 13.1 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). BMW has not release the official MPG numbers, but the company says the new M6 Convertible consumes 30% less fuel than its predecessor.

The M-tuned chassis comes standard with Dynamic Damper Control (DDC) electronically controlled shock absorbers that can be adjusted with the touch of a button.

The new BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible will be the first cars in the history of BMW M to be offered with optional M Carbon-Ceramic brakes (in conjunction with 20-inch M light-alloy wheels as of July 2012 production). The brake rotors measure 16.1 inches (410 mm) in diameter at the front and 15.6 inches (396 mm) at the rear. Made from a carbon-fiber ceramic compound, the rotors boast even greater resistance to heat combined with significantly reduced rotating masses. The M Carbon-Ceramic brakes are 42.8 lb (19.4 kg) lighter than the standard brakes.

The online configurator shows the M6 Convertible in the following standard colors: San Marino Blue, Singapore Grey, Black Sapphire, Mojave, Silverstone and Space Gray. The BMW Individual color pallet includes Citrin Black, Tanzanite Blue, Ruby Black and Moonstone.
