The M6 is BMW's high-performance version of its 6 Series sports car. It has more aggressive, M-specific styling cues and is powered by a turbocharged V-8 engine that's rated at 560 horsepower. Introduced last year as a convertible, the M6 is now also available as a coupe. A Gran Coupe version joins them later in the model year. The M6 competes with the Porsche 911, Audi R8 and Jaguar XKR.

New for 2013
The M6 coupe (two-door) and M6 Gran Coupe, a four-door with a coupe profile, join the convertible this year.
The M6's sporty styling includes a number of changes to the body, including a different treatment for BMW's signature twin-kidney grille, an aggressive lower front bumper with gaping intakes and revised rear bumper styling with quad exhaust tips. The convertible features a soft-top, and when raised the top keeps the graceful roofline of the coupe. Exterior features include:
The M6's cabin retains BMW's familiar driver-centric dashboard design, which features at its center a 10.2-inch screen that serves as the display for the standard iDrive system. The M6 can seat up to four people, and the front bucket seats have an M-specific design and aggressive side bolstering, integrated active head restraints and an embossed M logo. Interior features include:

M6 Gran Coupe
The Gran Coupe body style is equipped similarly to the other M6 versions. The biggest differences are in the body style itself and the resulting interior space. From bumper to bumper, the Gran Coupe is 4.4 inches longer than the M6 coupe and 4.1 inches longer than the 5 Series sedan. The front seat dimensions are essentially the same as the coupe's, but the Gran Coupe boasts a roomier backseat with three rather than two positions. There's 35.3 inches of legroom versus the coupe's 30.5 inches and 37 inches of headroom versus 35.8 inches in the coupe. Shoulder room is greater, too, by about 5 inches at 54.6 inches. The 5 Series sedan further improves on these backseat dimensions. The Gran Coupe shares the coupe's 16.2-cubic-foot trunk, which is 2.2 cubic feet larger than the 5 Series sedan's trunk. Back to top
