BMW M6, This Is Your Life (Top Gear)

     Featured on
Perhaps unwittingly, BMW technically referenced the iconic ‘less is more' aphorism of legendary architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe when building its new M6. Because with the announcement of the new super coupe, BMW has waved a fond farewell to the old high-revving, 5.0-litre V10 monster, and introduced a new, smaller, 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8.

The new V8 produces 552bhp - 42bhp more than the old car - and as such, ascribes to the late architect's maxim of minimalism. Sort of. Because as TG's Paul Horrell found out while driving the new M6 Coupe, that engine "goes like stink - it's an absolute monster".

Little wonder, if you'll excuse the pun, when you consider this new twin-turbocharged V8 extends a family tree that sprouted forth from a 3.3-litre straight-six in what is considered the first of the big, M-Power Six Series with the BMW 3.0 CSL.

So with our man's verdict on the new Big Beemer - "it's too remote to be a sportscar" - does old Ludwig's saying, that ‘less is more' actually ring true? Have a click through the gallery of the M6's family tree and see what you think...
