2013 BMW M6 Review
Reviewed by Automotive on
Vehicle OverviewThe 2013 BMW M6 has been completely redesigned, with updated engines, styling, and driver interface. The new M6 drops its original V-10 engine for a new twin turbo V-8, giving the new coupe better fuel economy. The BMW M6, sharing the same powertrain as the M5, is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 560 horsepower and manages to go from 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds. The new M6 gets an EPA-estimated 14/20 mpg city/highway, and has a range of 359 miles.
In a mid-2012 test drive (http://www.automotive.com/bmw/m6/2013/first-drive/) along the California coast in Santa Barbara, the 2013 BMW M6 managed to stay solid in almost any situation. There was no excitement when driving at normal cruising speed, which is not what this car was intended for. The M6 taunts its driver on to "keep pushing it harder, going faster next time around than the one that preceded it." The best features about the new BMW M6 can also be seen as some of its worst. While it manages to go from 0 to 60 in just over 4 seconds, it doesn't feel as fast as it should. "As a purpose-built tool made for speed, the M6 is a car that's best-suited for a long stretch of desert highway, or autobahn. Or a race track."
BMW has replaced all wood interior accents with carbon fiber in the new M6, and has added a three-spoke M steering wheel. The M6 features M-specific front and rear styling, including M front fenders integrating side gills, with quad exhausts to help identify this vehicle as the top-of-the-line 6-Series. Also featured on the M6 are standard twin-spoke, nineteen-inch wheels, with optional twenty-inch units.
New for 2013The 2013 BMW M6 has been redesigned for the 2013 model year, boasting a new powertrain and a new exterior and interior design.
