The 2016 BMW M6 will make its world debut at the North American International Auto Show and arrives in US showrooms in the second quarter of 2015.
New Adaptive LED Lights
The enhanced BMW M6 Coupe announces its high-performance credentials with its athletic appearance. New, standard Adaptive LED headlights make the intentions immediately clear - the M-specific double-bar kidney grille and eye-catching front apron with large air intakes see to that. The front wing mirrors, the side skirts and the forged 19-inch M light-alloy wheels add to this impression. The sporting looks of the 2016 M6 Coupe are rounded off by a rear apron with integrated diffuser insert, two sets of M-specific twin tailpipes and the M6 logo on the trunk lid. Another unique M feature is the ultra-lightweight contoured carbon fiber roof of the Coupe, which also helps to lower the cars' center of gravity.
2016 M6's Interior Design
Key elements in the interior are the M leather steering wheel featuring shift paddles for the M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic and M Drive, along with the distinctive M gearshift lever, special M instrument cluster, enhanced-style iDrive screen, center console in black panel look and an M-specific Head-Up Display. Setting the seal on the unique Merino full-leather interior appointments with contrast stitching are the electrically adjustable M multifunction seats, illuminated M door sill finishers with M6 logo, and an M driver's footrest.
4.4-Liter Twin-Turbo V8 Engine is Unchanged
The 4.4-liter M turbocharged V8 engine develops 552 hp between 6,000 and 7,000 rpm in the new BMW M6 Coupe, and its peak torque of 500 lb-ft is available across a broad rev band (1,500 - 5,750 rpm). Its power delivery allows the new BMW M6 Coupe to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The top speed of the new BMW M triumvirate is electrically limited to 155 mph or 187 mph when equipped with the optional M Driver's Package.
In the US, the new BMW M6 models transfer the engine's power to the rear wheels via a choice of either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic.
