The BMW M6 is the pinnacle of the M Division by numbers and market position. And at $106,995 it better be damned impressive. Luckily it ‘s more than impressive combining BMW ‘s best technology with greater power, efficiency and control as compared to the last M6. We ‘ve now driven both the convertible and coupe (check out the reviews below) and have come away thoroughly impressed by the new the M6.
THe M6 is powered by M ‘s S63Tü, an all aluminum 4.4L twin scroll twin turbo engine with a 10.0:1 compression ratio and a personality that is eager to please. It ‘s also an engine with a rather complex engine and exhaust note that comes (unsurprsignly) from the complexity of the mechanicals;
- Twin-scroll turbochargers with zero interference between gas pulses.
- Cross-bank Exhaust Manifold.
- Routing with perfect sequencing of exhaust gas pulses which results in perfectly “regular” charging of each turbine wheel and minimum possible turbo-lag, razor-sharp response, and vastly-improved efficiency.
The results are 560 hp at 6,000 – 7,000 rpm and maximum torque of 502 lb-ft from 1,500 rpm. We ‘ll have much more on this engine in the coming days in the form of our real-world BMW M5 review. But until then check out the video and our previous M6 reviews from the past couple of months.
