The 2012 BMW M6 has been captured once again in testing by CarPix’ spy photographers. Following the previous photos, these latest spy shots reveals the new BMW M6, but with less cammo, this time revealing the design of the front spoiler.
Comparing it with the next-gen 6-Series Coupe the M6 packs some slight yet significant changes. In these pictures, we can see quad exhaust outlets, reworked front and rear ends to snag more airflow while minimizing lift, and a similar but sleeker overall profile compared to the current model.
This model is thought to packing up to 600 horsepower from a tuned-up version of the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 found under the hoods of the X5 M and X6 M and the 2012 BMW M5 unveiled last month, and could potentially be the fastest production car ever launched by BMW.
At this time the official specs are still unknown, so we can just expect figures close to those put out by the M5. That translates to 0-60 mph times of about 4.4 seconds, 0-124 mph in 13.0 seconds, and top speed limited to 155 mph, though a performance pack option that raises the limit north of 180 mph is likely. Combined fuel economy for the M5 is 23.7 mpg in European testing, and the M6 should come in near that mark as well.
The M6 will be replaced altogether by theupcoming i8 ‘eco’ supercar, but as confirmed by these spy shots, we’ll have at least one more round of the M6.
Isn’t sure yet, but the 2012 BMW M6 is likely to make its world debut early next year, with sales to start sometime next summer. As for the pricing, expect a starting price of about $115 – 120,000.
