Additional Info: No official 2011 M6. The 2012 BMW M6 coupe has the code F13 and the convertible is the F12. Now with the new V8 M Twin Power Turbo engine and with close to a 50:50 weight distribution you can be assured of great performance and handling. The new V8 engine is a huge 30+% more fuel efficient than the previous V10, yet still produces more power. Much has been done to improve upon the previous model and that in itself is an achievement. Some of those changes, apart from the new twin turbocharged engine, includes a wider front track, the introduction of a 7 speed double clutch transmission (M DCT) with drivelogic, re-engineering of the suspension, with much use of forged aluminium, variable damper control, variable rack and pinion steering, a driver controlled dynamic stability control and many more driver button controlled changes via the idrive system. Optional are M carbon ceramic brakes. The interior also gets some attention with Merino leather, M specific heads up display, showing a digital speedo, gear and rev counter and shift lights. There’s also a 2 zone climate control, heated and multi-adjustable M Sport seats and even night vision. 2013 see’s the introduction of the Gran Coupe M6 with 4 doors. In 2016 a Competition Package option was made available with 600hp/516lbft with 0-60 in 3.9 seconds or 4.0 seconds as a convertible
