The 2010 BMW M6 shares most everything aside from its powertrain with the BMW 6-Series--but it's the powertrain that really matters, isn't it?
From first glance, the M6's swooping, aerodynamic front end leads to a rather thick and squat rear end that, despite previous restyling attempts, still seems at odds with the rest of the design. The interior's more friendly and usable, especially with the updated iDrive system fitted this year. Coupe andversions are available, and both offer the same 2+2 seating layout.
Stunning's the best word to describe its performance. The 5.0-liter V-10-powered M6 offers a whopping 500 horsepower of output for blazingly quick times of 4.5 and 4.6 seconds for the sequential-manual equipped Coupe and, respectively. All models are electronically limited to a maximum speed of 155 mph. The M6 is available with either a seven-speed sequential manual or a traditional six-speed manual transmission.Ultimately, the M6 falls a little flat, with excessive curb weight and overly complicated electronic controls smothering some of the BMW essence.
