And don't forget BMW has always had vertical slats in the kidney grill. This is not so for Audi....

Sick for sure. Awesome CF roof on the F13.

But don't like that new grill.

Like someone else posted, if you don't like the badge on the grill, have your grandma or mommy remove it for you...

The new M6 is fricken sick! The roof is simply stunning!

All I can say is wow. The front looks so mean and beautiful. The side grilles look good too. The only thing I think they fell short is the rear. It doesn't match the front half it looks like a completely different car from the back.

Probably no spare tire (because of the RFT) and no space in trunk once you go convertible (as the top takes all the space in it). Have never understood the German thinking with RFT and lack of trunk space... as beautiful as the car is... Haven been a BMW driver for most of my adult life... I guess I am driving a Mercedes (spare tire and trunk ******* for another year or until BMW decides to go back to a spare tire and trunk space (I know they wont).

wow. Beautiful car. BMW's nailed it perfectly with the proportion of this M6.

Those who are looking forward to the M6 grand coupe. Forget it. the proportion won't be the same. It'll be a freaking boat.

BTW, 560hp 500 lb-tq 2-door coupe can only do 0-60 in 4.2 sec? Must be a misprint!!!

Also, I wish it was a bit lighter, somewhere in the 3700 lbs range.

M cars and the M6 specially do not have Run-Flat-Tyres , mainly a get-you-home option of compressed foam in a can. The M6 Cabrio has that typical cabrio space enhancer which Mercedes also offers.

BMW will not go back to spare tyres and you will find that other manufacturers in their quest to match the competition weight for weight will also begin to ditch spare tyres.

First of all it's 0-62 in 4.2 which you take 0.2 off for 0-60. So 0-60 in 4.0 as a BMW "official" time is really really good because they are very conservative with times. For example, the "official" M3 0-60 is 4.5 with DCT, and it really is like a 4.1.

Also, I think 4000 lbs is pretty light for that big of a car. Remember the M3 is from 3600-3700lbs and this car is MUCH bigger.


On another note, I absolutely love the car! And holy 410mm front rotors for the carbon ceramic brakes!!

Yeah it's true that BMW used these M badges on front fascias way back, however they never were put INSIDE the kidneys themselves, which breaks the pureness of the the almost religious icon that are these symmetrical double kidneys. This marketing 'icing on the top of the cake' is useless and bad taste and looks like a stain imo. And yes it clearly reminds of Audi's badging today. Of course it will be removable but I'm suprised that BMW even considered this stylistic stunt.

Wow, that's a bit of a reach. The small front badge was on the outer grill,(outside the kidneys) in the past. Currently there is no outside grill. So where are they supposed to put it.
