You are driving along, and it seems like a fun idea to reach for your car's
ESP stability control button, so it's just you in control of machine. But
is it a wise idea? Steve Sutcliffe decided to find out, driving the hugely
grippy and stable, four-wheel drive 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo supercar.
Despite its amazing performance figures, he found that even at moderate
motorway speeds, an awful lot could go wrong, very quickly indeed.

2014 BMW M6 Cabrio (560hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p)
This week I present to you the full Drive & Sound with the new 2013/2014
BMW M6 convertible / cabrio, powered by an awesome 4.4 V8-Biturbo, delivering 560hp and 680 Nm of torque
through the 7-speed DCT. The BMW M6 Coupe I had driven last year was the
fastet car to 200 km/h that I have ever piloted and I was really amazed by
the performance again this time. The punch that this Bi-turbo V8 delivers is out of another world, just
from a subjective feeling it has more than 560 hp! The suspension of the
convertible is even more comfortable than the Coupe and in normal mode this
really is a great Gran Turismo that you could even drive with around 10
liters / 100 km on the Autobahn. The cabin is very luxurious and has a soft
touch feel everywhere, the iDrive of course is the benchmark. But what do
you think about the M6? Don't hesitate to COMMENT und make sure to LIKE &
