Fully redesigned for the 2013 model year, the latest M6 proves once again that it fits in well amongst a group of select top-notch grand touring vehicles. It will join the M6 convertible edition line that has been introduced for the present model year. Let’s try to get a closer insight into all its salient features in the following sections.
Main Rivals and Key Highlights
The two major competing models for the upcoming 2013 M6 Grand Touring coupe include Porsche 911 and Jaguar XKR. It’s really a tough task for the German automaker to outdo both these rivals, as they are really exceptional in each and every aspect of both interior and exterior designing.
However, with the help of its key highlights, including roomier interior cabin, excellent performance, sharper styling, enhanced fuel economy, and latest twin-turbo V-8 power, it is expected to give a stiff contest to both its rivals.
Under the hood, a standard 4.4-liter V-8 twin-turbocharged power-train will be featured in the forthcoming 2013 M6 coupe, which is estimated to deliver an incredible 560-horspower at 5,750 to 7,000 RPM, and maximum torque of 500 pound-ft at 1,500 to 5,750 rpm.
Both dual-clutch 7-speed auto manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive system will be offered as standard options with the latest 2013 edition.
0-60 MPH and Top Speed Details
The German carmaker claims that with the help of its new package, the 2013 model will be able to effortlessly sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.2-seconds, and it has been said that the 2013 BMW M6 top speed will be limited to around 155 miles per hour.
Fuel Economy Estimates
The EPA hasn’t released the fuel economy estimations of the upcoming 2013 model yet, but its manufacturer asserts that the new V-8 twin-turbo engine will consume nearly 30-percent less fuel as compared to the earlier V-10 engine.
The official pricing details of 2013 BMW M6 are not available at this point of time, so stay tuned to know more about the updated pricing.
