BMW has released info on its new 2013 M6 Coupe that features lots of stuff that the popular M5 has but places it in a two-door model. At the heart of the new model is its high-revving 4.4L V8 with M TwinPower Turbo Technology that pushes out 560 ponies (with 500 lbs.-ft. of torque), allowing it to sprint from 0-62 mph in only 4.2 seconds.
It also features a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission and has a more robust chassis than that of a standard 6-Series. Customer options include some M carbon-ceramic brakes and a set of 19-inch light-alloy wheels (some 20-inch ones will be available as an options soon). Also available are Adaptive LED headlights, a carbon fiber composite roof, and a head-up display in the interior.
The 2013 M6 will go on sale starting in June, with deliveries arriving later this summer. There’s also a convertible version that will actually be shown at the New York Auto Show with the coupe debuting in Geneva.
