Spyshots: 2012 BMW M6 on the Nurburgring

Since we’ve already met the 2012 BMW M5, our greedy nature now only wants to get to know the 2012 BWM... M6. All said and done - our spy shooters were summoned at the ‘Ring for the 1000th time this year and here we are, sharing the spy photos of the upcoming M6 with you.

The vehicle is wearing heavy camo, but we can see that it uses generously-size quad exhaust pipes, as well as redesigned front and rear fascias, which serve an aerodynamic, cooling and aesthetic role.

Under the hood, we’ll find the M5’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 unit churning out 560 hp an working with a seven-speed M DCT dual clutch gearbox, which brings gifts such as a launch control function and paddle shifters.

However, the coupe will be slightly lither, which means that the 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) sprint time will drop to around 4 seconds, the 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) game should be played on 13 seconds, while the top speed will be limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). However, the latter value can be increased to 180 mph (290 km/h) by opting for the performance package.

Do you believe in Santa Clause? Well, the answer would better be yes, as the 2012 BMW M6 should land around the time when people buy Christmas tress.
