2012 M6 Coupe Spied With Less Camouflage

Spied here is the 2012 M6 coupe with less camouflage than previously seen. Although much of the front fascia remains covered in camouflage tape, it will resemble the recently revealed 6-series Coupe (official info and photos), but with an M styled bumper of course. The front brakes feature huge calipers with cross drilled rotors front and rear. Traditional quad exhausts are seen at the rear, surrounded by a still-camouflaged rear bumper which will also sport M-styling. The wheels appear to be for testing only as their offsets are clearly too high for the M6's fenders.

The 2012 M6 will share the same motor and drivetrain as the upcoming M5 - a tuned version of the turbocharged 8 cylinder motor from the X5 and X6 M (the BMW S63 engine, a 4.4L twin turbo, twin scroll, direct injection).

The new M6 Coupe is expected to debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. The M6 Cabrio will follow later in 2012. An M6 Gran Coupe (4 door) is rumored to arrive in late 2013.

Although these are just static photos, we've previously seen and heard the M6 in live action. Those videos are posted below.

Why so much camo on the roof still? Possibly some sort of ducting on the C-pillar? Doesn't really make a whole lot of sense because they've already shown us what the standard coupe will look like.
