2012 BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible revealed

BMW has released details and images of its brand new 2012 M6 model in Coupe and Convertible configuration.

Making use of the same 4.4 L V8 Twin Turbo engine as the company’s F10 M5, the M6 has 412 kW (560 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb/ft) of torque at its disposal, resulting in a 0–100 km/h (62 mph) time of just 4.2 seconds for the Coupe (Convertible: 4.3 s) and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) which climbs to 305 km/h (189 mph) when the M Driver’s Package is specified. The transmission used is BMW’s seven-speed M Double Clutch system, which sends power to the rear wheels via an Active M Differential. The M carbon-ceramic brakes are optional.

Visually, the Coupe features a CFRP (carbon fibre-reinforced plastic) roof, while both versions are easily identified by their flared wheel arches, wider side skirts, adaptive LED headlights, trademark M gills, kidney grille with black double slats, an aggressive front bumper with large air intakes and lower spoiler, rear apron with diffuser, quadruple tailpipes and 19-inch (20-inch as an option) forged M alloy wheels.

Inside the cabin there’s Merino leather upholstery, carbon fibre trim, illuminated sill plates, 2-zone automatic climate control, an M-specific instrument cluster and Head-Up Display. M Drive buttons on the steering wheel can call up individually configured settings related to the car’s engine responses, M Servotronic mapping, Drivelogic shift program, DSC stability control and damper settings.
