If yesterday it was just a rumor, today it became official: Bmw has just announced the end of production of the M6 Coupé and the Convertible. 14,152 units were built by the Bavarian manufacturer since 2005: 9,087 units of the Coupé and 5,065 Convertible models (introduced a year later, in 2006).
Bmw M6 was a remarkable machine, powered by an impressive 5.0-liter V10 engine delivering 507 hp at 7,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 520 Nm. Its power-to-weight ratio of 3.37 kilograms per hp was an unbeatable key indicator. Mated to a seven-speed SMG Drivelogic fitted with Launch Control, the car could accelerate in just 4.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and had a top speed (electronically limited) of 250 km/h or 155 mph.
The M6 Convertible was able to sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds while the top speed achieved was 250 km/h or 155 mph.
The BMW M6 Coupé and BMW M6 Convertible received worldwide acclaim as dream cars for automotive enthusiasts with sporting ambitions.
"The number one market for both models was the US, which recorded sales of 3,528 closed and 3,247 open-top vehicles, followed by Germany (1,183 / 541 units). In third position for sales of the BMW M6 Coupé came Great Britain and Ireland, with 619 vehicle registrations; in the case of the BMW M6 Convertible it was Canada, with 209 units sold." stated the press release.
