General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has fully independent suspension
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
4.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
5.basic warranty (km)

80 000km

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
6.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.

Dimensions

1.weight

2.04t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.wheelbase

2.85m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
3.cargo volume

459l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.length

4.9m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
5.maximum headroom (front)

1.02m

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
6.maximum headroom (rear)

927mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

4.3s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

249km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
3.coefficient of drag

0.33Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

678Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.fuel economy (city)

15.7l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
3.fuel economy (highway)

10.7l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
5.number of cylinders

8

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
6.fuel economy (combined)

13.2l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has regenerative braking
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
2.screen size (in-car system)

4.2"

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience and is easier to use while driving.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
4.Has smart key as standard
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.Has in-car system
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
6.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
