The M6 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 560 horsepower, matched to a 7-speed double-clutch automated manual transmission. All that oomph is accompanied by electronic launch control and an adaptive sport-tuned suspension. To keep weight in check, the M6 wears a carbon-fiber composite roof panel, and the hood and doors are made of aluminum. Expect to rocket from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat.M6 CoupeM6 Convertible
The cabin is slathered in supple leather and black carbon fiber trim, and whole affair can be customized with a pallet of available leathers and woods. Standard equipment goes beyond the expected to include automatic soft-close doors, front and rear parking sensors with color display, a heated driver’s door lock, BMW concierge services and a ski bag. Convertible models carry special sun-reflective leather inside.
Most available equipment is distilled down to three option packages:
- Competition: Enhances the M6’s performance with 15 extra horsepower, racing-spec suspension and steering systems, sporty exhaust tuning, and upgraded tires on 20-inch wheels.
- Executive: Offers the additional luxury of massaging and ventilating front seats, a power rear sunshade, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display and full LED headlights.
- Driver Assistance Plus: Adds active collision detection and avoidance features, speed limit info, and top- and side-view cameras
Among the few standalone options are carbon ceramic brakes, Bang & Olufsen surround sound and night vision with pedestrian detection.
