2014 BMW M6 Coupe Tested

The audio system is trying to convinced us that “love is in the air”, but we’re feeling a slightly different aroma - the cabin of our 2014 BMW M6 test car says “Grand Tourer”.

We’ve spent two full days with the M6 so far and we’re still not feeling any fatigue. These seats are simply brilliant. In fact, the whole car was set up in order to sustain long trips with ease.

Gone are the F1 driving ambitions of the old E63 M6. BMW wants to sell more of these now, so they’ve made the M6 easier to use. The wide torque band of the twin-turbo V8 is the main feat here.

Alas, this BMW has lost quite a lot of its feel in the process. Sure, it’s got a good hydraulic steering and loads of power, but you never quite get sky-high thrills. We’re accelerating our way out of a tight left hander now and we’re happy, but not on an adrenaline rush. To be able to achieve this you have to send the DSC home and start drifting.

We’ll be moving away from the public roads now, straight into our 2014 BMW M6 test drive.
