New addition to the family.

Well as I posted about a while ago my father was looking into replacements for his 03 SL500. Well, he finally decided (With my persuasion). Here she is.

I just called BMWNA and the car has already completed production!!!!!
Also what the hell is a launch kit?

AHHHH IM SO IMPATIENT!!!!!!!!
Thanks for looking and help me get through this .

"The M6 will have the same 'power button' as the M5 which modifies the throttle response. From ignition, the car delivers 400 hp (298 kW), but engaging the button allows the full 507 ps."

perhaps that's what you are referring to?

Wow!! M6 convertible. What interior? Nice color

Possibly 'launch supply' refers to special equipment packaging for the 1st batch. I think MB does this a lot with their high profile models e.g. the recent S550 Launch edition etc.
