Really, it is a stretched version of the f12 platform, which shares some parts with the f10. I'm not saying I agree with where they're coming from, but that's where they're coming from.

I do believe the 6GC is the best looking car in the entire BMW lineup, but the excessive sharing of engines/tranny/etc.. among the M cars has gone overboard now. M now is nothing different than AMG.
And I'm getting bored of the argument that the car engine is the sole reason for a car to be expensive it's called a luxury car for a reason.

First people cry at BMW for adding ///M badge on everything then they cry about the price for the top of the line car being expensive.
