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).
The sporty and dynamic looks of the new BMW M6 Coupe, new BMW M6 Convertible and new BMW M6 Gran Coupe already indicates their high-performance potential even before the driver gets to drive them. For instance, the front end of the M6 models are provided with new standard LED headlights flanking the M-specific double-bar kidney grille. Below of the striking grille is the stunning front apron laden with large air intakes.
On the sides, the M6 models are marked by exclusive forged 19- inch M light-alloy wheels (20-inch M light-alloy wheels for the BMW M6 Gran Coupe), dynamic side skirts and powerfully sculpted front wings with the signature M gills and integrated side indicators. On the rear end, the new BMW M6 Coupe, new BMW M6 Convertible and new BMW M6 Gran Coupe are defined by two sets of M-specific twin tailpipes, a rear apron with integrated diffuser insert as well as the M6 logo on the boot lid. Both the new BMW M6 Coupe and new BMW M6 Gran Coupe are provided with an ultra-lightweight contoured carbon roof.
Meanwhile, the sporty and luxurious interior of the new BMW M6 Coupe, new BMW M6 Convertible and new BMW M6 Gran Coupe is marked by special M instrument cluster, an M leather steering wheel (with shift paddles for the M Double Clutch Transmission) with Drivelogic and M Drive and characteristic M gearshift lever.
