We have been in attendance at the 40 Years of M event at the Nurburgring for the past few days. Besides all the awesome M cars here for driving and ogling (more on those later), BMW M brought out a special treat sneak peek during M Night – the BMW M6 Gran Coupe! Also revealed at the event was the BMW M3 DTM Champion Edition Coupe.
Though technical details were not provided at the sneak preview, it will obviously be powered by the same S63Tu engine from the F10 M5, F12 M6 convertible, and F13 M6 coupe, likely with the same output (560hp). A 7 speed DCT transmission will be available and no word yet on a possible manual option. (more…)
What we can see here is a complete aerodynamic kit comprising of bumpers, side skirts and vents and everything. The wheel arches are now flaring with their full force, and the carbon fiber hood leaves a lasting impression and hopefully, it saves weight. From the diffuser at the back, sticks out a Lumma central double-pipe exhaust system. Multi-piece wheels provided from the company measure up to 12.5×21. That’s a serious caliber.
On the inside, Lumma have made an effort as well. Once you step in, a mash up of leather, Alcantra and carbon fiber overwhelms you. Elegance plus Sportiness – it is a well known formula.
The BMW M6 with it’s bi-tubro V8 engine and it’s 412 kW of power go out on sale near the Fall. Lumma Design plan to bring out their own BMW M6 by the end of this year. (more…)
650i is equipped with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine which produces 413PS (304 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. Hence it is very easy for this car to develop 0-100 km/h for just 5.0 seconds. The engine of this outstanding car is mated to six-speed manual transmission, and in addition the model includes Dynamic Damper Control as standard and the Active Roll Stabilization.
SR Auto Group has grasped the great truth that the automotive industry is like fashion. There are always new trends which appear every day and which must be followed. What they’ve done with this BMW is exactly this: they are going after the trend which now is all about chrome!

The M6 ASR starts against RS6 Evotech. Both have 750PS, but the Audi is AWD, which is enormous advantage with such amount of power. The reaction of the driver in the BMW is just 0.494 seconds and his top speed is 289.33 km/h in this start, which seems enough to overtake the Audi.
BMW is set to add another variant of the Coupe and Convertible to the BMW 6 Series line-up with the arrival of the BMW 640d xDrive Coupe and Convertible in spring 2012. Intelligent all-wheel drive – making its debut in the BMW 6 Series – teams up with a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology to take driving pleasure to another new level. The combination of a diesel engine and BMW xDrive all-wheel drive, which will also be found in the BMW 640d xDrive Convertible, gives the BMW 6 Series a spread of abilities none of its rivals can match.
