Choosing Your BMW M6

BMW M6

BMW offers the M6 Gran Coupe Convertible and Gran Coupe (listed separately) each in one grade. Both are rear-wheel drive only models.

The 2018 M6 has a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine generating 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. The M6 comes with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, delivering an EPA-estimated 15 city miles per gallon and 22 highway.

Priced from $124,595, including a $995 destination charge and the $1,300 gas guzzler tax, the M6 Convertible at least comes with a long list of features.

Standard equipment includes adaptive LED headlights with automatic headlights, retractable high-intensity headlight washers, power-folding and heated side mirrors, a carbon fiber composite roof panel (on hardtop models), a quad-tip exhaust system, and 20-inch light alloy wheels set within high-performance run-flat tires. The M6 also has a full leather interior with Merino leather upholstery and door trim, adaptive cruise control, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and a navigation system with a 10.2-inch high-resolution screen.

Although extremely well equipped, the 2018 M6 offers several upgrades beginning with six BMW Individual paints costing $1,950 or $3,600, and requiring additional build time. Three wheel choices are a no extra cost option. A fourth wheel choice with the convertible requires opting for the Competition Package.

Convertible models offer three roof color options at no extra cost.

The available $8,300 Competition Package ups output by 40 horsepower, adds special wheels, upgrades the sport suspension system, and brings in black chrome tailpipes. A $3,800 Executive Package adds a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, a power rear sunshade and rear side window sunshades.

BMW M6

For $1,700, shoppers can add a Driver Assistance Package, supplying improving rear backup support and parallel parking assistance. A $500 Parking Assistance Package supplies expanded camera view along with park distance control.

Buyers also have a choice of 13 types of leathers, including six special types of leathers with an Anthracite Alcantara headliner costing $3,500 or $5,000. Five wood choices, including three BMW Individual options costing $1,080 each are also available.

Individual options include M Carbon Ceramic Brakes ($9,250), the M Driver’s Package for a one-day high-performance driving school ($2,500), Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection ($2,300), and Active Blind Spot Detection ($500).

CarsDirect Tip

The death of the M6 Coupe means the M6 is automatically a less dynamic vehicle for 2018. Pass on the pricey competition package and grab the comfort-focused Executive Package instead, and enjoy a quick, comfortable two-door convertible.

The overachiever of the 6-Series, the 2018 BMW M6 pulls no punches when it comes to performance or luxury. It's a dramatic four-door offering sumptuous appointments, twin-turbocharged V8 power, and the ability to cruise at felonious speeds. For buyers with the means to indulge, the M6 obliges like mad.

Best Value

The coupe and convertible versions have departed, leaving the sleek Gran Coupe to carry the M6 banner. It's always been our favorite body style, offering mouth-watering looks and first-class accommodations in back. Most of the features available on 6-Series come standard on the M6, including adaptive cruise control, navigation, automatic soft-close doors, and an extended leather interior. Some driver assistance items remain optional, but can be added inexpensively enough.

The available Competition Package bumps the twin-turbo V8's output from 560 to 600 horsepower and permits a top speed of 186 mph. It's a must-have for track enthusiasts, but the modified suspension isn't for everyone. It can get harsh in civilian driving. A six-speed manual transmission is a no-cost option for buyers who still insist on shifting for themselves.

  • Model: 2018 BMW M6
  • Engine: 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8
  • Output: 560 hp / 500 lb-ft
  • Transmission:Seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with launch control
  • Drivetrain: Rear-wheel drive
  • MPG: 14 City / 20 Hwy
  • Options: Executive Package ($3,800, heated steering wheel, Bang & Olufsen sound system, ventilated and massaging front seats), Driving Assistance Package ($1,700, head-up display, speed limit information, blind-spot monitoring, active driving assistant), Parking Assistance Package ($500, side and top view cameras), Apple CarPlay Compatibility ($300)
  • Base Price: $124,595 (including a $995 destination charge and a $1,300 gas guzzler tax)
  • Best Value Price:$130,895

Performance

BMW M6

Behind the wheel, it's easy to forget that the M6 is a spacious four-seater that weighs 4,500 pounds. It takes off with a muted growl, and then the scenery gets blurry. The M6 hits 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and keeps sailing until the electronic limiter kicks in – at 155 mph. The seven-speed automatic transmission isn't shy about dolling out power. Any prod to the pedal produces an instant, satisfying response.

The suspension quickly dispatches any challenges thrown at it on public roads and highways. There's always the Competition Package for the feel of a street-legal racer, but the M6 doesn't need it to be thrilling. Most drivers will reach their limits long before the M6 does.

As much as we admire its power and reflexes, the M6 shines brightest as a touring car. On long stretches of road, it coddles passengers with a glass-smooth ride and an overall feel of being chauffeured rather than transported.

Style

The M6 represents the largest and most ambitious application of BMW's Gran Coupe body style. The couple-like contours look especially good stretched over the 116.7-inch wheelbase. The M6 comes off lean, agile, and poised – quite an accomplishment for a car of this size and weight.

The finely detailed interior lives up to our expectations for a car in this price class. The fine leather extends to the dashboard and door panels – and can wrap nearly every surface for an additional fee. The palette of available finishes includes carbon fiber, aluminum, black lacquer, and a variety of woods, from traditional to exotic. The 10.2-inch central touchscreen provide a dash of high-tech color to the affair. The center console runs to the rear seat, where passengers can make their own climate selections.

The Best and Worst Things

Many cars claim to offer performance and luxury, but few can provide them on equal footing to the extent that the M6 does. There are no compromises or trade-offs to be found in either department. That makes the M6 a true standout in the marketplace.

Although the M6 has four doors, it's not our idea of a luxury sedan. The full-length center console prohibits five-passenger seating, and the sloping roof limits rear head room and makes getting in and out less than graceful.

Right For? Wrong For?

BMW M6

Buyers who want a prestigious car that's truly unique will think the M6 was made just for them. It's not for everyone, and that's the whole point. The M6 is a rolling contradiction – and a delightful one at that.

Those who measure performance in terms of lap times and g-forces should look elsewhere. No matter how it's equipped, the M6 is simply too heavy to compete alongside dedicated sports cars.

The Bottom Line

The 2018 BMW M6 can make heads turn and hearts race while soothing the soul.
