    4.9s from 0 to 60 with 407hp?!
    Oh man, can’t wait till the M6 :x

      I know, that’s pretty impressive

      • Frederico Silva

        If the M6 has the M5’s engine, than, with almost 200hp more it could do impressive numbers!
        Damn, will arrive the day when I’m not proud of Bmw, or their engines? I don’t think so..

      This thing is really fast!

  • Woo Hoo

    Would be nice if a retractable hard top was an option. I get it, the soft top was weight saving…etc, but some of us want the security and longevity of a hard top. Perhaps carbon fiber?
