Where did that come from? It is so they can offer the "Flying Buttress", allows the rear window to be used in the up position to reduce wind in cabin. One car's CAFE number means nothing- Why would there be a 760Li then? That is the heaviest car in the fleet with the largest engine.

A hard top convertible can be made lighter than a soft top these days- the Z4 is proof of that. The next gen 3 will continue on as a hard top.

I love what people come up with as answers sometimes...
That was info direct from a BMW engineer, not something I just made up. Take your high horse attitude elsewhere instead of being an ass.
Sorry but do you see how ridiculous that sounds... It is not even remotely true, and if it was a US engineer that sounds about right, hence why they aren't supposed to talk without AK present.

The next time you see this Monte Carlo Blue Cabrio will be on the BMW stand @ Detroit. Alongside the F30 3er.

Europeans will have to wait for Geneva where it will Premiere alongside the 6er Gran Coupe which will have its world premiere.
That aint Monte Carlo Blue, that is San Marino Blue.

As far as I've understoot MC won't be avaible on the M6 cabriolet.

I dunno, that could be Tanzanite Blue. It just showed up as an Individual color for the 650i Cabrio (though not the Coupe, oddly enough). Either way I like it. For those who prefer a darker blue, Deep Sea Blue would probably look awesome on this car too -- more understated but still sexy.

I can't find any pics of Tanzanite in the wild though. Is it a brand new color?

M exclusive (formerly exclusive included) are names after race tracks, San Marino being an Italian track.

That doesn't contradict my statement. I said Tanzanite was an Individual color, not an M-exclusive color.

Yes , you are correct , but you really should have kept that under wraps for the next couple of weeks.

@Jason : Can you make sure that the new BMW M6 will be revealed at NAIAS ?
I'm going to book a flight to Detroit just to see the new M6, but it's late December now and I do not see anyone talk about it will be at NAIAS or not

the New 458 spider will be a hard top and lighter than the old one, the M6 being a RAG top is disapointing

multiply the price by 2.5 for the prancing horse and then you can understand why bmw cant offer the hardtop
