If your name is Marco Wittmann and you are a DTM driver, then you are probably the luckiest man these days as BMW has just revealed an M6 Coupe designed especially for the German driver. The first visual impact with the car shows the impressive BMW Individual “Fire Orange” paintwork, the carbon fiber roof and the carbon fiber rear spoiler.
In addition, there are new wing mirror caps painted in high gloss black. Inside, the vehicle features a carbon fiber trim with Fire Orange accents as well as an M steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara. Moreover, the M6 Coupe comes with fine-grain Merino leather in Black with BMW Individual contrast stitching in Kyalami Orange.
Under the hood, we find the standard high-revving 4.4-liter V8 engine with TwinPower Turbo technology found also on the BMW M5. The twin-turbo V8 engine delivers 560 hp (412 kW) at 6,000 – 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm.
As a result, the BMW M6 Coupe zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.6 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
Equipped with the M Driver’s Package, the top speed is raised at 305 km/h or 189 mph. Despite these numbers, fuel consumption in the EU test cycle is 9.9 l/100 km (28.5 mpg imp).
