BMW launched a new version of its 6-Series convertible that's, er, a bit smaller than the current model. The new version offers a reductive take on the 2006 6-Series, including a single forward gear plus reverse, a hand brake and foot brake, and "real" electric horn. Two powerplants are offered, including an electric motor โ€” with indicator light and 90-minute range โ€” with a top speed of two to five miles per hour (faster downhill), or a more economical leg-powered pedal-drive version. An assortment of signs and cones are available, with which which drivers can make and enforce their own traffic laws. The new model carries an MSRP of $425 for the electric-powered version and $250 for pedal-drive. No word on the release of an M version. (Purchase details at
