New for 2018

The 2018 M6 is only available in two body styles: the convertible and the coupe-like sedan called the Gran Coupe. BMW has discontinued the M6 Coupe.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2018 BMW M6 is a high-performance, rear-drive convertible or sedan that slots above the smaller M3 and M4. It's available as a single loaded trim.

Standard features include 20-inch alloy wheels, an Active M differential, a performance-tuned suspension and drive model selector, full LED headlights, heated 20-way power adjustable front multi-contour seats. a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Bluetooth, BMW's iDrive interface with a 10.2-inch screen, navigation, a rearview camera, keyless entry and start, parking sensors, ambient lighting, a wireless phone charging pad, and leather upholstery.

Options include Individual two-tone leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, heated rear seats (Gran Coupe only), active front seats, power rear and side sunshades, a surround-view camera system, Apple CarPlay, carbon ceramic brakes, and night vision.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2018 M6 comes with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual or a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission are the two gearboxes available. Output increases to 600 hp when equipped with the Competition package. EPA fuel economy ratings regardless of body style are 14/20 mpg city/highway with the manual or 15/22 mpg with the automatic.

Safety

Adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams are standard on all models. Additional active driver assistance features are available via the Driving Assistance package, which adds blind-spot monitoring, speed limit info, and the Active Driving Assistant, which bundles together lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking.

Utility

The 2018 BMW M6 Convertible has 10.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the roof down and 12.4 cubic feet with the roof up. For more cargo capacity, the M6 Gran Coupe has 16.2 cubic feet with the split-folding rear seats in place and 44.7 cubic feet with them folded.

What We Think

In a 2013 First Test, we said that the M5 offers strong straight-line performance and, for such a large car its stopping ability is impressively short. Despite its size, the M6 handles in a neutral manner but is also capable of big smoky power slides thanks to its potent turbocharged engine. The interior is well-appointed and the convertible's soft top can be raised and stowed at speeds of up to 25 mph.

Cool Fact

The BMW M6 is currently the only M vehicle available as a four-door coupe-like sedan called the Gran Coupe.
