The BMW M6 is a high-performance version of the 6 Series coupe/convertible, designed by the motorsport division of BMW.
The newest generation M6 is based on the BMW F12/F13 and shares its 7-speed M-DCT gearbox, BMW S63 V8 engine and other technology with the BMW M5 (F10). The M6 coupé has a carbon-fiber roof and other weight saving measures, making it 20 kg (44 lb) lighter than the M5, however it is 140 kg (309 lb) heavier than the previous M6.
The official performance figures claim acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.2 seconds. The design style is similar to all recent M cars. The front of the car has a newly designed M kidney grille with an “M6” badge – a homage to the first generation M6.
