BMW M6 Convertible vs Boxster S

Given these figures, it's hardly surprising that neither was lacking pace out on the track; even the serious supercars failed to pull away completely down the straights. And both put on speed with minimal fuss - planted foot, a couple of tugs on the paddles and hello to licence-losing rapidity. The slick, dual-clutch gearboxes help. You can arrive at a corner, bang down the 'box and get on the power early to sling up the straighter bits. Concentrate on mashing the throttle as soon as possible because of the instant and punchy power delivery.
