The configurator for the latest 2012 BMW M6 Convertible has just gone live on BMW’s website, offering potential buyers and fans alike to set up the car to their exact specifications.

You may be wondering why there’s no configurator for the M6 Coupe just yet.

That’s because BMW has chosen to launch its M6 Convertible first, with the car set to go on sale in June.

The M6 Coupe will follow in late summer.

So, focusing only on the drop-top for now, the configurator offers a number of interesting features to keep us interested. There are five different categories--Exterior, Interior, Packages, Options and Accessories--and each of these are then divided into sub-categories. Suffice it to say, you can easily spend countless hours arriving at your ideal setup.

The site also provides basic pricing information for all the upgrades, ranging from the completely bare model priced at $113,995 (including destination) and reaching well beyond that once all the options are ticked.

All M6 models come with a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. This engine is rated at up to 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to rocket the car from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and see it easily reach its electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

  1. Boo! I have on the waiting list for this car since September 2011, and I have looked for this thing to come on line practically every day. Here it is, and let's see what our color choices are: black, black, black, white, grey, grey, grey, grey, brown, blue, blue and, uh, blue. What the hell! Are these guys clinically depressed? And this comes after the initial disappointment that they didn't even bother to give it its own engine--just pulled one out of the parts bin for their SUV line. Again, I say, BOO!

    Bad stuff?

     
  2. As someone else said... "This is the best car that BMW M can build?"

    I wholeheartedly agree. This is such a lame cruiser built for Hollywood types. Screw BMW M. They can go sell more mPerformancePOS cars to all the badge snobs.

    I wonder if it has the fake sound effects like the M5? What a joke.

  3. I think I'm going to pull my $1,000 and go elsewhere. The disappointments continued as I continued the configurator. Fewer interior configurations than the standard 6. No AWD option. And what's up with the orange leather interior? I mean, full points for trying to offer up some color, but coupled with the mandatory black dash it looks like Halloween. Maybe spend that creative energy on some exterior paint colors? Fully loaded this thing rings in over $135,000. I was thinking that a nicely loaded new 911 4S convertible was going to be a good step more expensive than this car, but you folks at BMW helped sell me the Porsche (which, BTW, comes in colors and has real sound).
