This Year’s Best MotoGP Qualifier To Receive Exclusive BMW M6 Convertible

Just as they did last year, BMW is ready to offer up an exclusive M6 Convertible to the MotoGP’s fastest man during qualifying.

Actually, last year BMW was giving a way a 431 HP M4 Coupe, which is less fancy and comfortable than the M6 Convertible, yet since all racers care about performance, maybe they’ll care about the fact that the M6 Convertible will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, while last season’s prize did it in 4.1 seconds.

Then again, maybe they could really care less, since you know, they’re getting a free BMW M car – and what an M car this is!

It looks absolutely stunning, especially thanks to the Frozen Blue exterior and the double-spoke 20″ alloys. This particular M6 Convertible also comes with Opal White Merino leather upholstery and BMW Individual Ash Gran White wood trim.

Last year’s winner was Marc Marquez (he received the M4 Coupe) and he’s looking mighty quick this year as well thanks to his highly competitive Yamaha.

But we’re not here to talk about bikes, are we? The 560 HP, 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) BMW M6 Convertible sounds a lot better than any crotch rocket.

The BMW M Award classification works by giving out points (similar to winning points in the race) relative to a rider’s position in qualifying. Whoever gets pole is rewarded with 25 points, while 2nd and 3rd places will net you 20 points and 16 points respectively.

Not a bad way to motivate these riders, is it?
