Current Generation: (2012-Present)Edit

F12/13 M6 (2012–present)

Third generation (F12/F13)

The new model 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 M6 convertible is 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the previous M6 Convertible.

The official performance figures claim acceleration from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 4.2 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) without the M Driver's Package (allows it to run up to 305 km/h) . The design style is similar to all recent M series cars. The front of the car has a newly designed M kidney grille with an “M6” badge – a homage to the first generation M6.

see BMW E63 for more details

The E63 M6 was introduced in 2005. It has the same 5.0L V10 S85 as found in the E60 BMW M5. Uses the seven speed SMG III electrohydraulic manual transmission.

  • A lightweight CSL version of the M6 is expected to be released in the near future.
