As the potent up-market sibling to the elegant 6-Series, the 2010 BMW M6 offers a more aggressive take on the grand touring concept. With revised front and rear valences and a host of performance upgrades, the M6 is one high-powered GT.
Available as a coupe or convertible, the M6 offers 2+2 seating, quad tailpipes, standard 19-inch alloy wheels, and vented cross-drilled disc brakes.
Powering the M6 is a 5-liter dual overhead cam V10 that sends 500 horsepower to the rear wheels through either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed direct shift gearbox, operated by steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. This setup will rocket the M6 from zero to sixty in roughly 4.5 seconds.
Fuel economy for the M6 is a follows:
Our M6 convertible model had carbon fiber interior accents, a heads-up display, a 13-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system with 2 subwoofers, and BMW's iDrive system. From the center console-mounted controller, iDrive operates the navigation, entertainment, and climate functions, all viewed through the wide screen LCD screen.
Also accessed through the iDrive system is M Drive. With M Drive an operator can pre-configure everything from throttle response, to power output, to shift times and ride stiffness, allowing the M6 to transform from a comfortable luxury coupe, to a high performance 2-door with the push of a button.
Standard safety features include 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, dynamic stability control, all-speed traction control, front and rear park distance sensors, and a full array of front and side impact airbags. Our M6 convertible came with the additional protection of added body reinforcements, and a rollover protection system- standard on convertible models.
Base MSRP for the 2010 BMW M6 is $102,100. An M6 convertible will start at $107,900. The M6 is backed by a 4-year, 50,000-mile powertrain warranty.
With all the styling of a luxury coupe, V10 power, and the latest automotive technology, the M6 re-affirms BMW's credo as "The Ultimate Driving Machine"
