BMW M6 Convertible to Bow at Detroit Auto Show

With the 2012 North American International Auto Show shaping up to be a focal point for new vehicle introductions, automakers appear to be jostling with each other in a bid to not be outdone.

As far as BMW goes, the Munich based concern's big announcement will likely be the M6 cabriolet, powered by a version of the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, which made its debut in the F10 chassis M5 back in Frankfurt this past September, though power and torque are reported to be increased.

Other M6 Cabrio features include a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic, though rumors are surfacing that a conventional six-speed manual could be offered for US customers.

The M6 ragtop will also sport M Dynamic Control as part of it's stability control setup, along with an active rear suspension and differential, designed to further enhance handling and traction. There will also be M Servotronic hydraulically assisted steering and two M-Drive functions, essentially allowing the car to change personality depending on the driver's request.

Other vehicles slated to be on the company stand in Detroit include the new BMW 3-Series, ActiveHybrid 5 (making it's North American premiere) along with the F10 M5; plus the i3 EV and i8 plug-in hybrid concepts first seen in Frankfurt.
