There's a little rush that comes from getting a first peek at a yet-to-be-revealed model's styling, especially if it's an M model, and even if it's just a diagram. We're happy to share with you the first look at the upcoming 2013 M6 coupe/convertible's external styling bits, from official parts diagrams.

These M6 parts diagrams give us a good view at the upcoming 2013 M6 front and rear bumpers. As M6 spyshots suggested, the M6 follows the latest M styling cues with its inverted-mouth front bumper design previously seen on the E9x M3 and F10 M5 models. The lower edge of the outside front bumpers (splitters) appear sportier than that of the new F10 M5. The spoiler lip seen in spy photos will also form part of the M6's front fascia. The rear bumper design is fairly similar to the F10 M5 with its rear diffuser design.

The The F12/F13 M6 coupe and convertible will get different standard wheels - a seven double-spoke 19" wheel called Style M 344. The optional 20" wheels from the M5 will be available on the M6 as well.

Technical specifications are the same as the F10 M5, so expect the marvelous twinscroll twinturbo 4.4l V8 (S63Tu) to offer 560hp and 680Nm of torque.

Finally, there'll be an additional interior color for the F13 M6 coupe. Zandvoort Beige will complement the other already known choices (Black, Sakhir Orange, Silverstone II).

We expect BMW to announce the first official details on the 2013 M6 shortly, prior to its public reveal at the 2012 Geneva motor show next month. Expect a US launch this summer.

wow, gotta love the internet... i still think it could have looked better. Not a big fan of BMW in terms of their design philosophy at the moment.

Awesome find, southlight. Harold Wood & Co., take note. The front bumper of the M6 will inform the styling of the front bumper for the M3 and M4 more than any previous M car to date.

Looks like that power bump to 580 was just a rumor.

Now im guessing the F80 and F82/3 will have the same power. I always thought it was kind of lame to uprate the coupe engine.

... now I'm sure BMW will offer it with a manual transmission, but you can't turn the traction control off...


Sound familiar?

It's an entirely different market than the 1M and what you don't see here is some of the finer details etc. as they are not included in the parts images. There is some aggressiveness that has yet to be revealed... the shots above do give some clues. The car looks fantastic for the intended purchaser and use. Compared to the outgoing model it is a huge step.

I am not so sure why people think the 1M was so aggressive aside from the rear haunches which were functionally needed- with a bigger car that was designed from the get go to get wider wheels that is not necessary on the M5/M6. Much of the elements from the X5M -> 1M are in this car such as the larger more square bumper cutouts, the air curtains and the rear bumper look- not much is different. The biggest difference is yet to come.

Does "us launch this summer" mean customer deliveries this summer and is that a solid time frame ?

Thanx

There's obviously no official confirmation yet but I'd consider it an "educated guess".


Best regards,

You see, that's what I was hoping for in the 7 spoke setup but only if the 7 spoke comes in a 20" diameter, which according to the info listed they don't .... :
