Bold styling, an aggressive exhaust note and pure adrenaline are all watermarks for BMW‘s M cars, not the least of which is the 2012 M6 convertible.

On the off-chance you don’t believe us, there are two videos below that show the latest land shark in motion, though we would have hoped for more tire smoke and less melodramatic music.

The company revealed the latest in their line of tire-burners over the weekend, letting on that it will be a more powerful, luxurious and efficient iteration of the previous M6, which returns after a two-year hiatus. A coupe version is usually first to make the market, but BMW decided to operate in reverse of the convention, releasing the convertible model in 2012, with the hard-top version to follow next year.

You can read the full details of the car in our previous post, but just in case that isn’t enticement enough we should mention that it’s making 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque thanks to the M5-sourced  4.4-liter twin-turbo V8.

The videos below show the convertible and coupe in motion.
