One of the latest releases from Kyosho comes from their line up of "barely street-legal" BMW M super machine replicas. The 2006 BMW M6 Convertible version replicated here, features a 5.0-liter V-10 engine producing 500 horsepower at 7,750 rpm and 383 lb-ft. of torque at 6,100 rpm. This enables the M6 to achieve a 0-60 MPH time of 4.8 seconds and a limited top speed of 155 MPH.

Kyosho's execution of this super car is of course well done. Build quality is excellent, and shut lines are extremely tight. So tight in fact, that I had trouble opening the hood and trunk-not a complaint, just an observation. A neat feature is the undercarriage button that props the engine hood up just a couple of millimeters so that you can easily open and view the engine bay. As with most of the modern-day luxury supercars though, the engine bays are disappointingly sparse, with the most everything contained beneath molded covers, but Kyosho has replicated it well, complete with the M V10 badging.

The wheels are exceptional, complete with BMW emblazoned center wheel caps. The chrome finish on these 5-spoke wheels has a slight smoke effect that goes very nicely with the silver paint and black interior. The 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes even feature the directional-drilled pattern found on the real car and have a nice brushed stainless finish. The massive tires have a nice feel and width to them, and the car has an active suspension, with a little more play in the rear.

The interior is also done very well. All seats feature a soft to the touch surface, which make them feel like they are real leather, and the rear seat back cushions give with a light touch. The center console opens and the dash is nicely appointed, although the seats don't recline. A nice extra is the available soft top. But this is not like any soft top I've ever seen in 1/18 scale. While it is a fixed molded piece, it has a simulated-rubberized outer layer and interior matching inner layer. It’s almost as if Kyosho replicated BMW’s triple-layered roof design. All that’s missing is the insulating polyurethane foam layer!

I was very impressed with this Kyosho model. As I said before, build quality is excellent, with zero paint flaws detected, shut lines are very tight, and the interior was nicely executed. This release is available in Silver with Black Interior and Dark Blue with Tan interior. Both are sure to make fine additions to your collection. Legacy Motors has both in stock now for just $95 each.
