COMMENTS

The 2013 BMW M6 coupe (F13) press launch is underway in Spain and we've uploaded the newest official hi-res wallpaper images of the M6 coupe and convertible (F12) into our Official M6 Thread. If you noticed a slightly new look to the F13 M6 coupe, it's the new trunk spoiler that it now receives as standard equipment in order to improve aerodynamics.

Check out the full set of wallpaper photos below.

I like the new 6, even the GC is beautiful. But it can't beat the coupe.

I'm not a fan of the spoiler. I think that it looks like a cheesy afterthought. Just my opinion, but I wouldn't want that on my 130k car...

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

That leather dashboard looks too rough, kinda cheap, especially as it spreads all the way to the gearshift/armrest area needs a nappa leather treatment.

Does the carbon-lip front spoiler come as standard for the coupe too? Cause there's no front-lip for the convertible in these pictures.

I think the exact opposite, the leather looks beautiful and smooth. and I would bet my left nut that it is exactly that. BMW uses some of the softest, nicest leather in the automotive industry if you ask me.

That's not a carbon fiber lip, just a plastic 'lip' that's part of the lower front bumper. The convertible has it too, it just doesn't show up that well in these photos.
