if you are a style connoisseur with deep pockets, chances are, you would settle for nothing less than the best in any categories. so when it comes to BMW, you probably want something that’s worthy of your style-demanding taste – something like the flagship road-going sports car, the BMW M6. never mind the number, just the lone character ‘M’ would spell power, luxury power that would make any grown man weep with joy. destined to be available in both the coupe and convertible versions, the new M6 sports a visually imposing body with a very athletic look that has been closely associated with the M cars. regardless which version you choose, beneath its bulging hood is a rev-happy 4.4-liter V8 petrol unit equipped with M TwinPower Turbo technology that sends a rubber-burning 560 horsepower (412 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque to its Active M Differential-equipped rear wheels and along with its seven-speed M Double Clutch transmission, the M6 Coupe makes a century sprint in just 4.2 seconds (4.3s for Convertible version) and rocketing it to an electronically governed top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), or 305 km/h (189 mph) if you opt for the M Driver’s package.
some of the highlights include carbon fiber-reinforced plastic roof, cross-bank exhaust manifold, high precision direct petrol injection, VALVETRONIC fully variable valve control, flared wheel arches, functional rear apron diffuser, adaptive LED headlights, luxuriously appointed interior, and 19-inch M light-alloy rolling stocks. it’s a M car, so naturally it sports a host of M-specific features such as M-specific Dynamic Damper Control, lightweight compound high-performance braking system, just to name a few. state-side folks can expect this dynamic duo from June onwards but exact technical specifications and pricing are yet to be announced. a sweet gallery of the new M6 is available after the break.
