The Germans from BMW officially unveiled the new BMW M6, the high-performance version of the standard 6 Series, a model developed by the well-known M division. As mentioned in the title, BMW plans to unveil the all-new model at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March for the European market.
The Americans will take a look at new M6 a month later, namely at the New York Auto Show which is scheduled to begin in April this year.
To begin with, the new M6 is offered with a 4.4-liter turbocharged unit able to deliver 560 horses and 680 Nm of torque (502 lb-ft).
This is the same unit found under the bonnet of the BMW M5 and uses two twin-scroll turbochargers being linked to a seven-speed M-DCT transmission.
With such specifications, the new BMW M6 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4,2 seconds (Coupe) and 4,3 seconds (Convertible), hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h. These performance figures are available for both Coupe and Convertible models, an additional M Driver’s package increasing the top speed from 250 km/h to 305 km/h.
“New edition of the BMW M6 in Coupe and Convertible body variants; generous dose of M feeling combined with alluring design aesthetics, a luxurious aura, seating for four and innovative equipment features,” says BMW.
We will publish a new article about the all-new BMW M6 in the next hours, a post where we will talk more about the new German model.
