The new BMW M6 - rebirth of an icon.
May 11, 2005

Hot on the heels of the new M5, and taking lightweight design solutions from the M3 CSL, the new M6 combines supercar presence with Grand Touring potential. Joining an exclusive club, the fourth new M car of the decade sets a new performance benchmark for a production car. The beauty of the M6 is also its ability to comfortably crush kilometres on a cross-country cruise.

Like its predecessor - the legendary 1985 M635CSi - the new M6 resets the sports GT benchmark, with supercar performance, dispatching the zero to 62 mph sprint in 4.6 seconds and achieving a limited top speed of 155 mph. If derestricted, the M6 would be capable of a 200 mph+ top speed. During tests at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, the new M6 regularly clocked eight minutes lap times.

Powered by the same 4,999 cc engine that set new standards in the M5, the 507 bhp power output ensures that the new M6 maintains the M car tradition of breaking the 100bhp per litre benchmark. Peak power is developed at 7,750 rpm with the red line set at 8,250 rpm. Peak torque of 520 Nm is developed at 6,100 rpm of which 450 Nm is available from just 3,500 rpm. The 90-degree V10 aluminium-silicon alloy engine block is extremely light yet robust and is the first V-arrangement engine to use a bedplate construction.

Inside, the new M6 comes with fully adjustable M sports seats that include lumber support and an adjustable backrest width as standard. They are covered in extended Merino leather, with the owner able to choose between Black, Silverstone or Sepang. As an option, full Merino leather can be specified in Indianapolis Red and Portland Natural Brown alongside the other three colours that includes a leather covered dashboard and alcantata headlining.
