Jon Sibal and LeftLaneNews bring us a new rendering of the next generation BMW M6. Most of the known details at the moment can be found in our previous report, so far now we will focus on some insight provided by the usual BMW agent Scott27.
“M6 Coupe like 1M is a Segler car (Dr. Kay Segler, M boss). The forthcoming M5 was initiated before he took over the reigns. The M6 features sharper edges within the aerodynamic packet of the 1M Coupe and M6 Coupe.
The M6 also brings a new sharper visual appearance to the M cars with the M3 and future 1M, as well as Z4M all set to benefit from the new edgier look.
The reason for this is the Gran Coupe which will arrive as an M variant in early 2014, so to have two four-doors vehicle doing the same thing is entirely confusing to the customer.
The new M6 Coupe will have its own attributes and characteristics in order to challenge established rivals from Porsche, Audi, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz.
The new M6 Coupe will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. The M6 Cabrio will follow later in 2012. M6 Gran Coupe will arrive in late 2013.
A Possible M6 Shooting brake is on the cards.”
Here are the latest rumors and as always, we advise you to take them with a grain of salt.
