Lots of power for the new M6
BMW makes some nice M cars for sure, and my favorite by far is the M3. While the M3 is far from cheap, it's one the most reasonably priced BMW M-series vehicles. BMW has been on-again off-again with M6 production over the years and for 2013 the car sticks around and gets a complete redesign.
BMW offered up more official images of both coupe and convertible versions of the M6 today. I don't really like the way the front end of the car looks, what do you think? My uncertainties about front of the car aside, BMW is packing in a lot of power under the hood. Both the convertible in the coupe will share the same 4.4 L bi-turbo V8.
That monster V8 has 560 hp and 500 LB-FT of torque output. While the M6 is a bigger vehicle, that is enough power to scoot the coupe to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds and the convertible gets to the same speed in 4.3 seconds. Both vehicles get a seven-speed DSG transmission, a special rear differential, and the latest DSC system. Pricing for the car is unknown, but expected it to be well on the six-figure range.
