BMW M6 continues its striptease

Now that the ink has dried on the 2012 BMW 6 Series coupe and convertible, it's time to focus on the rest of the Big Six range. BMW is hard at work on a four-door Gran Coupe version of the 6 Series, but the car we're waiting for is this, the next-generation M6. Like the previous M6, the new model should be available in both hardtop and droptop body styles, and the powertrain will likely be ripped right from the recently unveiled M5 sedan. With 560 horsepower on tap from a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8, the M6 will surely be no slouch, sending all of that power to the rear wheels via a... Read More

    Review: 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupé
    1382976060

    A moment of 560 horsepower zen... In our line of work, we are behind the wheel of many cars each year. It's not uncommon to drive over 100 different vehicles if there are round-ups and full line tests. Truth be told, many cars tend to blend together and one could easily swap badges leaving no idea what it really is. The styling, the technology, the ...

    Featured: M-fographic breaks down the history of BMW performance machinery

    Few characters carry the kind of clout among performance enthusiasts as the letter M. For 35 years now, that one letter has adorned over 300,000 BMWs, each tuned to deliver a higher degree of performance than the stock models on which they're based. The M division has worked up nearly 100 different models over the past third of a century, which can leave ...

    Video: Supercar parade entering highway is mesmerizing
    1368125940

    In what must have looked and sounded to motorists on the M6 like an invasion of The Swarm, a parade of 50 enthusiast gems leaving a charity event were caught shooting down the on-ramp and merging into traffic. There were plenty of Porsches joining the 959 and Ducktail above, Aston Martins going back to the badboy V8 of the last millennium, a Ferrari ...

    First Drive: 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe
    1368028800

    Is This A Great Idea For An M Model? The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is already an issue of large debate. The essential business case for the car is that it's more distinctive than a straight 5 or 6 Series, and has much of the sense of space and luxury of a 7 Series. It has the wheelbase of a 5 Series, the relative width of a 6 Series, and an exterior ...

    If you're anything like us, the first half of that headline made you smile. The BMW 1 Series M Coupe was, without a doubt, one of our favorite cars from the past few years, and according to a BMWBlog interview, Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, head of the company's M division, has confirmed that a successor is in the works.

    BMW's 6 Series Gran Coupe is a grand sedan with sexy stature and a little less rear headroom - in a sentence. But having driven it on curvy Californian roads, we found it lacked grip and could use beefier brakes to match its power and heft. BMW's M department has quickly taken care of our concerns in the all-new 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe... and added another ...

    We've known about the ins and outs of the lovely BMW M6 Gran Coupe for a while now, but that doesn't mean we weren't happy to see the thing in the metal for the first time, here in Detroit. The M-tuned Gran Coupe utilizes the same 4.4-litre forced-induction V8 that powers both the BMW M6 and the M5, with an output of 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of ...

    Teased: BMW M6 Risden is amped up for track duty
    1356886860

    Risden Engineering is a bit of an unknown, if we're being completely honest – we have yet to report on the company to date, and its corporate website is really an information desert save for the name and a few email addresses. Even the press release that we requested from Risden's contact person is short and vague. That's all pretty much okay with ...

    Purists Be Damned, This Is A Proper M The new BMW M6, and to an even greater extent this M6 Convertible, often causes automotive apoplexy in your typical armchair motoring enthusiast. That's because as soon as the M badge is applied to any BMW, all sorts of expectations are heaped upon it. Mostly those entail remembering what we, collectively, loved ...
