Walking up to the 6, our eye was immediately drawn to the convertible’s wide stance and sleek, swoopy lines. Like the Z3, we were pleasantly surprised by its overt shark-like features. In relative sizes, the Z3 is a Tiger shark to the 6 Series Great White. It’s a massive car with an intimidating demeanor.
Despite the aggressive look, the 6 is decidedly elegant and poised on the road. The V8 engine emits a refined symphony of muscularity rather than a confrontational one. If you need perfect silence, merely slow down to 25mph and raise the power top. No need to pull over like some kind of plebian convertible. Heavens no!
Inside, the 6 features rich surfaces and textures, such as Nappa leather-finished seats and dash, befitting pampered sensibilities like ours. The center console is dominated by a large, netbook-sized screen that, shockingly, was still easy to read with the top down and the sun directly overhead.
