Beauty and charisma: two things a Miss America judge looks for when voting on some of the country's best and brightest women. They're also major selling points for BMW's convertible GT cars. The two characteristics are delivered in spades with today's featured car.

For sale on AutoTrader is a 2007 BMW 650i convertible that once belonged to Vanessa Williams.

Williams is a singer and actress who currently stars in the ABC TV show Desperate Housewives. Through her career she has been nominated for Grammy, Emmy and Tony awards but she may best be known for being the first African American woman to win the Miss America pageant in 1984.

Her Miss America title became the source of some controversy after some nude photos surfaced, which eventually caused Williams to resign from her position. She was never officially forced from the crown and the pageant currently lists Williams and runner-up Suzette Charles as winners of the 1984 pageant.

In 2007, Williams bought the BMW new and before too long, she decided to swap it out for an even more lavish sports tourer. She took delivery of a Maserati GranTurismo and sold the BMW to her manager and producing partner, Michael Gruber, who is selling the car now.

The 6 Series convertible is BMW's most luxurious convertible. It comes with a 360 horsepower 4.8 liter V8 engine that can propel the car from 0-60 in around 5.6 seconds. When equipped with the automatic transmission that Williams opted for, the car is capable of a respectable combined 18 MPG.

Gruber said the car is in great condition and still has four years worth of BMW's transferable extended warranty left.

The 650i is being listed for $44,700 which is pretty close to the KBB estimated value for similar cars.
