I love the frozen colors. How do you go about getting a frozen color, and how long will they be available for? Also, does anyone know pricing on the frozen silver or frozen grey?

Awesome, awesome car and pics. Thanks for sharing. One question though - is there any reason you don't hear aggressive rev-matching throttle blips on downshifts? I haven't really heard that here and come to think of it, not in the F10 M5 either. Is it me or is it just not there in the way it is with an E92 M3 DCT, for example or with the E63 AMG BiTurbo V8?

Great looking car and digging all colors except Silver.

Would have been nice to see the cockpit view of the hot laps, similar to what was done for the F30.

The new M6 looks stunning , much better than the previous version IMO. I really dig the mate silver.

However it sounds so un-inspiring

But I am sure it performs very well though.

Is it only me, or the track video sounds as if it is a 6MT .

It's gotta be a DCT. There's no 6MT available for M6 until next year.

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?!?!?!?!

Hmm? How'd they film that? One second we are in the car with nothing in front of us then we are looking back at the car. Hmm?

It's mixed footage from an on-board (M6) camera and another camera on the Alpina B7.

It's the popping sound from the exhaust on throttle liftoff, which sounds like it's perhaps rattling the recording device.

The sound from lifting off the throttle actually sounds great on the M5/M6.

Ah, I figured something like that. Thanks, Jason.
