2014 Bmw M6 now available with manual-transmission option

Article by Christian A., on April 1, 2013

BMW’s 2014 model year lineup for the 6 Series will be exciting with the following models offered: the ultra-high performance BMW M6 Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe models. The M6 Gran Coupe is already slated to be launched on June 5. A 6-speed manual transmission is offered with the 2014 M6 as an option.

The M Carbon Ceramic Brakes are also available. With these options, the M6 model is more striking and appealing as it permits owners to customize their driving experience. For two years before the launch of the latest generation of BMW M5 Sedan and M6 models, BMW M GmbH engineers developed the 6-speed manual transmission for the M6 Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe in house. In fact, it’s offered at no additional cost on all three models.

Furthermore, the control harmony, friction surfaces, and component strength were all modified and checked to offer the most engaging driving experience. Included in the manual transmission is an engine management software that instantly and smoothly matches engine speeds in each downshift in the EFFICIENT and SPORT modes of operation. This feature is cancelled by switching the engine mode to SPORT+, requiring the driver to synchronize downshifts with the use of the accelerator pedal for the highest level of involvement.

Opting for the M Carbon Ceramic Brakes means that the vehicle gets large-diameter, long-life front and rear brake rotors built from the most-modern carbon ceramic composite material, resulting to weight savings for the M6 of 42.8 lb (19.4 kg) from the car’s essential corner areas, particularly at the moving suspension parts and wheel hubs.

The reduction in weight boosts the effectiveness of the whole suspension system. The M Carbon Ceramic Brake system is just as important as it rapidly dissipates the extreme heat produced by high-speed braking in a way that’s most efficient and effective. The M Carbon Ceramic Brakes offer a stunning visual quality, with the brake rotor surface getting a mirror-like self-polishing finish. All four corners will get gold-painted brake calipers that are easy to identify. These brakes are referred to as true “maximum performance” option.
