Be interesting to do a poll and see of the people pumped about how it looks, who's dropping $120k of their hard earned money on this car?

Who's putting one on order?

The M6GC is a whopping 11 lbs heavier than the M5 (i.e. 1950kg vs 1945kg). It's even a staggering 55 lbs heavier than the M6 Coupe, which weighs 1925kg.

My M6GC weight comments are intended as sarcasm (i.e. as a retort against all those naysayers who were certain the M6GC would be so much heavier and slower than the F10 M5).

I still think the design of it is great; but for some reason they made the mistake of adding 2 doors that shouldn't be there

They can't get the parking brake to work in a fixed caliper.

Fixed 4-pot and separate parking binder and call it a day. Just saying.
