BMW 6 Series gets ready for the 2018MY

It has been a while since BMW launched the third generation of the BMW 6 Series, both as a coupe and as a convertible. That was way back 2011, and today the BMW 6 Series remains one of the sought-after models in its segment. While we are waiting for the next generation of the BMW 6 Series to arrive, we could feast on a refreshed version of the model for the United States market for the 2018 model year.

Honestly, the 2018 BMW 6 Series – remains as it is. This means customers shouldn’t expect any radical mechanical changes or inner working revisions on the latest version of the BMW 6 Series, which means the Coupe, Convertible and the Gran Coupe. However, BMW has decided to beef up the looks of the 6 Series in a bid to tease customers up before the arrival of the next generation models. Apparently, these cosmetic and equipment tweaks are able – somehow – make the 2018 BMW 6 Series still as appealing that it is still worth the purchase.

These new cosmetic and equipment options are all available for the 2018 versions of the BMW 6 Series Convertible and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe – encompassing sporty modifications to both the interior and the exterior of these refreshed models. For the exterior, the 2018 BMW 6 Series Convertible and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe could be provided with a new M Sport Package that was previously exclusive for the M model.

For the new BMW 6 Series, this M Sport Package comes with a new Carbon Fiber trim as well as a Sonic Speed Blue metallic exterior finish that should allow either the Convertible or the Gran Coupe stand out from others. This M Sport Package also includes new bi-color 20-inch M light-alloy wheels with M-specific double-spoke design. These rims are wrapped in staggered run flat tires.

On the other hand, the already lavish interior of the 2018 BMW 6 Series could be further be customized with personalization offerings from BMW Individual. Customers could choose from a broad palette of interior paint finishes, modern trims and high-end leather, as well as from a wide array of headliners and equipment. These additional interior modifications from BMW Individual could be further employed to ensure that the customers could personalize the cabins of the 2018 BMW 6 Series Convertible and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe models according to their own taste and preferences.

For the 2018 model year, both the BMW 6 Series Convertible and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe will be available as 640i (rear wheel drive) and 640i xDrive (all wheel drive) powered by turbocharged inline-six 3.0-liter engine delivering 315 hp of output. Both the Convertible and the Gran Coupe will also be available as 650i (rear wheel drive) and 650i xDrive (all wheel drive) powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine providing 445 hp of output.

Dahler Design and Technik creates convertible version of the BMW M2

Do you want to drive or ride in a BMW M2 Convertible? Well, even if you want to, you couldn’t, simply because the German carmaker has no convertible version of the M2. While a 2-Series convertible does exist, an M2 droptop doesn’t. As the performance version of the BMW 2-Series coupe, the M2 coupe could be too good just to be converted into a droptop model.

But now, a convertible version of the M2 has been sighted, but not at the production site of BMW. This M2 Convertible was sighted at the yard of tuner Dahler Design and Technik GmbH in Switzerland. Yes. Since BMW wouldn’t build an M2 convertible, Dahler said it would and it could. Eventually, plans pushed through and that led to the creation of this customized M2 convertible, providing that Dahler is good enough to undertake a project that even BMW wouldn’t venture into.

Considering that there is a real demand for a droptop version of the M2, Dahler went on and created a convertible from a coupe. More than that, Dahler even improved the performance of the model. This was achieved by increasing the output and torque of its turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine, installing a stainless steel exhaust system and a coil-over suspension system. The M2 convertible by Dahler also features a high-performance brake unit, new wheels and tires, several aerodynamic enhancements and a new interior fitting of a convertible.

Dahler offers two levels of performance upgrade for the M2 convertible. As it is, the M TwinPower Turbo engine in the BMW M2 coupe delivers 365 hp (272 kW) of max output and 343 lb-ft (465 Nm) of peak torque, with short overboost torque of 369 lb-ft (500 Nm). When Level 1 is availed, this engine generates up to 402 hp (300 kW) of output and up to 428 lb-ft (580 Nm) of torque, allowing the M2 convertible to accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 180 mph (290 kph).

When the Level 2 upgrade is applied, the M TwinPower Turbo engine would deliver high levels of power at 419 hp (313 kW) of output and 610 ft-lb of torque. This should allow the M2 convertible to be quicker in the sprint while reaching a top speed of nearly 186 mph (300 km/h). The power of this upgrade is made known to the world through the sound emanating from the M2 convertible’s dark-tipped stainless steel exhaust system from Dahler.

Braking power is provided for by Dahler’s 8-piston high-performance brake-system with 400 mm brake discs. The convertible’s aerodynamics is enhanced by a spoiler lip with lateral flaps. While the interior of the M2 convertible remains mostly stock except for MID-display-unit in the cockpit, Dahler is offering interior customization packages that clients could avail for their droptops.
