BMW F13 M6 Review by Car and Driver

The M6 has a long history. The first M6 to ever come out was back in the 1980s, more specifically in 1983. After the E24 model was pulled out of production, BMW took a break from building it for about 16 years, when the E63 model came out, in 2005.

The most recent model in the M6 line-up is the current F12/F13 one which seems a bit off from the original idea, which was a light, agile and fast car that really put a smile on your face and made you work to keep it in control.

The guys from Car and Driver too a Coupe M6 out for a test drive and were actually pretty disappointed. It's not because the high-performance F13 is not quick enough or because it doesn't bring a smile to your face.

On the contrary. The new car has an S63 4.4-liter V8 that produces 560 HP and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque (according to some, the real numbers are around 610 HP and 790 Nm) and comes as standard with the ultra-quick 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. Those 2 units are enough to make you smile every time the rev counter goes over 1500 RPM, where you start feeling every single Newton per meter.

The thing that disappointed them in this car was that it became too comfortable. The numbers are impressive and the feeling will blow you away, but unless you're on a track, or on a winding road, outside the cities, on highways, this car feels so comfortable you might as well call it 'the ultimate touring machine'.
