How is passion expressed? You can try it with numbers. However, 560 hp and 4.2 seconds for 0-100 km/h reveal just a fraction of what constitutes the fascination of the BMW M6 Coupé. One look at the aerodynamically optimised body gives you an idea of what makes M engineers tick. With its imposing presence, it demonstrates directly just how much motorsport DNA is in this sports car. This is also reflected in the cockpit. Containing exclusive materials from the BMW Individual Collection if desired, it exudes sportiness right down to the last detail. All this puts the BMW M6 Coupé in pole position for impressive engineering. The same is true of the agile M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine. With technologies such as the Active M Differential and high-precision M suspension, this centrepiece is a perfectly attuned unit. And with the optional M Competition package, the BMW M6 Coupé gets even more racetrack feeling. With power boosted to 600 hp and driving dynamics optimised in many other details, taking things to the limit is more tempting than ever before.

DESIGN.

EXTERIOR DESIGN.

The BMW M6 Coupé appears to lurch just above the road as if ready to pounce. At every touch of the accelerator pedal, the engine draws fresh air in through the large inlets in the aerodynamic front section. The M emblem flashes briefly on the double slats of the kidney grille. The tyres already grip the asphalt. Pure power supremely pushes the athletic body forwards. The eye wanders across the side line: The optional BMW Individual paint finish Frozen Red metallic perfectly highlights the elongated lines with its matt surface. The curved M exterior mirrors and contoured carbon roof are integrated harmoniously into the overall image. An intensive encounter, perfected by the striking rear. With a perfectly integrated spoiler lip and diffuser, it increases downforce, leaving a powerful impression.

INTERIOR DESIGN.

The perfect conditions for a personal best: The interior of the BMW M6 Coupé provides an ideal set-up for driving at threshold level. And without compromising on luxury and exquisite materials − the entire range of the BMW Individual Collection is available on request. The driver can draw on innovations such as the full-colour Head-Up Display with M specific functions. In the driver-orientated cockpit, the ergonomic leather steering wheel with integrated shift paddles intensifies the feeling of being at one with this driving machine. Individual settings are retrieved directly at the press of a button. The optional M multifunction seats − covered with exclusive BMW Individual full-leather ‘Merino‘, for example − provide optimum lateral support, even when cornering at high speed. Details such as the roofliner in black Alcantara perfectly round off the overall sporty concept.

WHEELS.

In addition to the standard 19'' M light alloy wheels Star spoke style 344 M, there are three 20" variants available to choose from for the BMW M6 Coupé: the forged Double-spoke style 343 M with mixed tyres is also an option, either polished or in matt black. The latter features five striking spokes, perfectly framing the M compound brakes − tried and tested on the racetrack, with its callipers finished in blue and bearing the M logo. The third alternative within the optional M Competition package is the burnished Double-spoke style 601 M in Bicolour finish, for example. Sporting an even more filigree design with its seven spokes, it accentuates the toughened appearance of the BMW M6 Coupé: always ready to demonstrate its passionate spirit unashamedly at a touch of the accelerator.

DRIVING DYNAMICS AND EFFICIENCY.

ACTIVE M DIFFERENTIAL.

The Active M Differential variably distributes the drive torque between the two rear wheels to optimise traction and driving stability during dynamic lane changing or accelerating out of curves, when making curves at high speeds or on roads with uneven surfaces, including on snow, gravel and ice. It even provides precise handling during extreme lateral acceleration. The constant, smooth adjustment of the differential lock harmonises the vehicle's driving performance, improving control in extreme driving situations. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels. The system, which was developed for motor sports, is connected to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) via an electronic control unit. It proactively provides the perfect use of locking action between 0 and 100 percent, neutralising even the finest differences in torque between the rear wheels – without the tendency to understeer. The Active M Differential provides optimal grip as well as great directional stability and perfect handling, and it converts virtually all of the engine's drive power into acceleration.

M CARBON CERAMIC BRAKE.

The M Carbon ceramic brake* is a result of the transfer of technologies from the motor sport industry. The application of an innovative carbon fibre compound ceramic makes the braking power even more direct and improves brake-fade stabilisation. It is also non-corrosive, very resistant to abrasion, tolerates more heat and contributes to a lower vehicle weight. Its lightweight construction reduces rotating and unsprung mass, improving acceleration, responsiveness and overall handling, but also increasing the driving dynamics and traction, improving suspension comfort and reducing fuel consumption. With its unusually large brake discs (front 410 mm, rear 396 mm), six-piston fixed callipers at the front and one-piston floating callipers at the rear, the M Carbon ceramic brake is fit for the race track thanks to its very high heat resistance even over long periods of use. At the same time a perforated and ventilated brake disc ring guarantees more powerful heat dissipation. The M Carbon ceramic brake is easy to recognise, thanks to its matt Gold-coloured brake callipers featuring the classic M designation.

* The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.

7-SPEED M DOUBLE-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION WITH DRIVELOGIC.

The M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative double-clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-revving engines. It comes with traction-optimised automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance, as well as the Automatic Start/Stop function. It can be controlled either automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the M leather steering wheel or the gear selector in the centre console. The M double-clutch transmission makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without an interruption in tractive force. This is due to two subtransmissions, each with its own clutch, which continuously relay the power of the engine to the wheels by overlapping the clutches. The gear shift strategy is also optimised with the help of existing navigation data – the M double-clutch transmission, for example, downshifts proactively ahead of bends. The additional Launch Control function, which allows maximum acceleration from a standing start, offers an extremely dynamic driving experience: shifting gears at high speed is possible without using the clutch, and without any interruption in the power delivery. Regardless of whether the driver selects the automatic ("D" mode) or manual ("S" mode) mode, Drivelogic always offers three shifting options: extremely sporty, comfortable and efficient.

M DRIVER'S PACKAGE.

The M Driver's Package increases the top speed from the standard 250 km/h to 305 km/h. The M Driver's Package can be ordered straight away when purchasing a new vehicle or can easily be added on at a later date. All other technical data remain unchanged once installed. This also includes a voucher for BMW M Intensive Training as part of BMW Driving Experience. Should the M Driver's Package be purchased more than once then the Driving Experience training can be switched for a different training, including an additional charge.

BMW INDIVIDUAL.

BMW INDIVIDUAL FOR THE EXTERIOR.

Luxury, perfection, conviction – as demonstrated by the interior of the new BMW M6 Coupé with equipment from BMW Individual. One particularly special combination, shown here, is the BMW Individual full-leather trim ‘Merino‘ in impressively radiant Opal White and the contrasting interior trim in Piano finish Black, with its unique, deep gloss. Contrasting stitching, revealing true attention of detail, is perfectly matched to the colours and, along with the Alcantara roofliner in Anthracite, creates an interior composition with the colours of a piano keyboard. The further four BMW Individual ‘Merino‘ full-leather colours also have their own distinctive character: from Platinum to Champagne to Cohiba Brown. They offer a unique luxury feel, too, thanks to their natural, open-pored surfaces. This luxury can be further enhanced with the BMW Individual roofliner in Alcantara. To perfectly round off the interior, you have the choice of two further BMW Individual trims – each equally impressive when it comes to craftsmanship and quality.
