Whether behind the wheel or admiring from the outside, BMW's M6 Coupé leaves a lasting impression. Its beautiful, aerodynamic form is just the start – the vehicle performs like a racecar yet during everyday journeys delivers comfort in abundance.
Based on the 6 Series, the M6 Coupé has a similarly sleek shape that gives it an imposing presence. To this elongated profile BMW has added a number of eye-catching features which reflect its athleticism and power. A neat fold stretches from front to rear, with creases along the bonnet enhancing the feeling of constant forward motion. An M chrome grille is flanked by narrow headlamps and sits above three large air intakes that feed the engine with cooling air. Design cues straight from the racetrack are also seen, notably the alloy wheels, performance brakes and quad exhaust pipes at the base of the sporty rear.
The car's interior is the ideal environment in which to fully enjoy its inspiring performance, as you feel connected and supported from the moment you take the wheel. Carefully considered ergonomics angle the cockpit and all key features towards the driver's seat, so you can command the M6 Coupé instantly. Meanwhile, three passengers are seated inside the cabin with surprising amounts of space and refined materials surrounding them. Stitched leather features heavily throughout in true BMW fashion, and with the BMW Individual service you can express your own personality in the car by selecting from a host of personalisation options.
Technological advancement is a high priority for the German brand as the M6 Coupé demonstrates. Plenty is found on-board to support you when on the road or track, starting with the 10.2-inch Control Display which combines with an intuitive iDrive Controller for simple command of multimedia functions. BMW Online Services is the integrated web portal giving access to various online services, while enhanced Bluetooth® with voice control enables you to dock a smartphone, receive calls legally and listen to SMS messages via text-to-speech. Another highlight is BMW Professional Navigation with intelligent route calculations, real-time traffic information and a split-screen display.
The car's centrepiece is its magnificent 4.4-litre twin-turbo charged V8 engine tweaked to send 560bhp to the rear wheels. It takes the model from 0-60mph in around 4.2 seconds of pure excitement, with a top speed of well beyond 100mph possible when you venture onto the track. Ample torque means the M6 Coupé surges forward confidently at a dip of the accelerator, and the seven-speed M double-clutch automatic transmission it couples with feeds power to the road with little interruption as you move up through the gears.
Reassuringly, careful attention has been paid to safety performance in the M6 Coupé to keep its bundles of power in check and give you complete confidence. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with three modes counteracts oversteer and understeer by automatically braking, helping you remain on the intended line. M Compound brakes slow and stop the vehicle from high speeds in a controlled way, and the Dynamic Safety package combines various proactive technologies to protect during hazardous situations. For example, the seatbelts are tightened in fractions of a second if an imminent collision is detected.
The M6 Coupé rightfully takes its place among the best in the class with leading performance dynamics and generous amounts of standard equipment. You can discover this all with a test drive from Williams BMW across the North West of England; simply enquire for details.
