The BMW M6 is a high performance rear-wheel drive coupe that can manage 0 - 62 mph in 4.2 seconds thanks to its 4.4 litre (552 bhp) twin-turbo V8 engine. You can tell it apart from the standard BMW coupe by its in-your-face styling: quad exhausts, large alloys and flared wheel arches – and of course, its unique M6 badge.
Expect to pay over £90,000 for this prestigious car, and £490 a year to tax it, but this is nothing less than you’d expect from a car that counts the Porsche 911, Audi R8, Nissan GT-R and Mercedes-AMG GT as its rivals.
The M6 includes huge tyres, variable suspension, and steering and gearbox settings that will allow you to change the way this car behaves depending on whether you are looking for a comfortable cruise or a more sporty set-up. Driving modes are adjustable via the M6’s on-board computer, but whichever you choose, the supple and supportive leather seats will ensure comfort.
Also included in the price is a satellite navigation system, dual climate control and a display that will give you a heads up if there is anything that needs attending to.
Build quality of the M6 is superlative; all the materials are of the highest quality regardless of whether they are for the heating controls or the way the steering feels – and careful consideration has been given to practical elements too.
The boot space offers a massive 460 litres of room but that doesn’t impinge on the cabin space. There is plenty of head and legroom in the front, and the back is also big enough for two adults – an unusual feature for a car that focuses on performance.
