2012 Holiday Gift Guide HIGH PERFORMANCE
BMW’s third-generation M6 Convertible (above) and Coupe have hit showrooms after a two-year hiatus. Each retains its sleek, iconic look while sporting a more powerful V8 engine that sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 and 4.1 seconds, respectively. Twin turbo chargers allow for a more compact engine that provides an efficient balance between high performance and fuel consumption. Priced at $113,995 (convertible) and $106,995 (coupe). bmw.com
