BMW Unveils 2013 M6 Models
Known as a “sportier” version of the M5, the new M6 takes the best elements of the lower series model and packs them into a two-door form, compacting the engine, transmission, and electronic gadgetry specifications.
According to AutoBlog.com, the 2013 M6 Coupe and Cabriolet will boast a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 (codenamed S63), which boasts an output of 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque — almost exact duplicates of the M5′s specs.
It also boasts the same seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox as the M5, which sees the it performing from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Sources told the auto blog that a six-speed manual option is under consideration, but won’t be available at launch. Fuel consumption has been improved as well, reduced by 30% while power has increased by around 10%.
The 2013 M6 will arrive first as a convertible, followed by the coupe will go on sale later this summer.
