The muscular M6 has new chiseled features that are well in tune with its enhanced performance potential.
Compared to its predecessor, the new M6 has a far more aggressive facade that's better in tune with its newly improved power capabilities. Out goes the naturally aspirated V10 and in comes the new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 found in the M5, delivering 552hp to the wheels via a seven-speed M double clutch transmission system. The muscular sports coupe can shoot from 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph (with the limiter disabled top speed increases to 189 mph).
An aerodynamically-sculpted carbon-fiber double-bubble roof affords the car a great two-seater look, while new to the 2013 M6 are carbon ceramic brakes, the first time this has ever been offered as an option on a BMW model. Distinguished by their bright gold calipers that shine through the upgraded 20-inch wheels, they not only help with track racing but also drop around 20kg off the weight of the car. Pricing starts at 94,795 (UK market) and 123,600 Euros (German market) and the new model will be launched by the end of the summer and hit US showrooms in June. The convertible will hopefully put in an appearance at the New York Auto Show in April.
