Vehicle Overview

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.

(Skip to details on the: M6 Gran Coupe)

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:

  • 19-inch light-alloy wheels; 20-inch light-alloy wheels available
  • Lightweight carbon fiber roof lowers coupe's center of gravity
  • Twin-kidney grille has black slats
  • M-style appliques in the front fenders
  • Adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED accents
  • Available adaptive LED headlights
  • Convertible top takes 19 seconds to open, 24 seconds to close, according to BMW
  • Soft-top can be operated at speeds up to 25 mph

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:

  • Merino leather upholstery
  • Carbon fiber trim
  • M6 lettering on the doorsills
  • Two customizable M Drive buttons on the steering wheel for vehicle settings
  • M Drive can alter the characteristics of the engine, steering and stability system, among others
  • Available head-up display
  • Available Bang & Olufsen premium stereo

Under the Hood
A twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 generates 560 hp at 6,000 rpm and 500 pounds-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. Mechanical features include:

  • Seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with steering-wheel shift paddles and launch-control function
  • Maximum turbo boost pressure is 21.7 pounds per square inch
  • Fuel-saving stop-start engine technology
  • Electronically controlled limited-slip Active M Differential
  • Adaptive dampers and adjustable power-steering assistance
  • Available carbon ceramic brakes with 16.1-inch front rotors and 15.6-inch rear rotors
  • Acceleration from zero to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds (coupe) or 4.3 seconds (convertible), according to BMW
  • Top speed electronically limited to 155 mph

Standard safety features include:

  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system with deactivation setting
  • Side-impact airbags
  • Side curtain airbags (coupe)
  • Pop-up aluminum roll bars behind rear head restraints (convertible)

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
