New BMW M6 Series

BMW have kicked the latest BMW M6 Coupe and Gran Coupe models up a notch with a few updates and changes. The most impressive spec, is the combined fuel consumption of 9.9l/100km which is quite good considering both models are hiding a 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 engine under the hood. This engine pumps out 560 horsepower – which takes the engine to between 6000 and 7000 rpm in its peak. Drawing on its 680 Nm torque, the M6 Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds – an uncommon number for an M series.

Aesthetically its the classic M shape, featuring a wide and mean-looking rear end and 19-inch alloy wheels on the sides. Large air intakes on the front of the car meet exceptionally well with a soft curve down the side of the body, leaving a further refined look.

One thing I would love BMW to pursue with their M models is a more aggressive grill. To me it looks very similar to your standard, stock BMW – but now we’re getting picky.

All in all I have always been a fan of the M6 coupe, for its dominating stance on the road and mean roar, and this model neither pleases or displeases me. The low combined fuel consumption is something to admire, and potentially something to continually improve in the future as CO2 and green restrictions become tighter around the world, particularly in Europe.
