The next generation BMW M6 continues its pre-final evaluation phase testing runs. Based on the upcoming 6 Series models due to be unveiled at the end of this month, the 2012 BMW M6 flagship will continue to sit at the top of BMW’s lineup.

Rumored to be phased out when the new bodystyle arrives, the M6 prototypes show that F12 M6 project is still on track.

As seen in the spy photo above, the M6 continues to carry the typical wider rear fenders and the usual four-tailpipe exhaust system characteristic to M models. At the front end, a more aggressive and typical M-style bumper with integrated diffuser is included as well.

The new M6 will likely be powered by an upgraded version of the 4.4 liter V8 engine, producing near 600 horsepower. A similar engine but will less output is rumored to appear in the next M5 as well.

The power is exclusively directed to the rear wheels and should make for an impressive acceleration. A regular sprint to 60mph is not expected to take more than 4 seconds.

F12 M6 will be launched in early 2012.
