It looks like BMW had a little surprise up its sleeve. Both the F12 BMW M6 Coupe and the F13 M6 Cabrilolet were expected at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. However, turn your attention to the 1:40 mark of this video posted by Shmee150, and you’ll notice Tiff Needell is behind the wheel of the drop-top.
The 60-year old TV presenter and ex-racing driver knows how to work the crowd and even gets the tail out for good measure.

Both cars are powered by the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, good for 560 hp and mated to a 7-speed DCT transmission and an active M Differential.

In the M6 Coupe, this means 0-100 km/h (0-62mph) in 4.2 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.6 seconds. While the convertible is a bit slower, it’s still quicker than the M5, which has the same engine.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
