The next generation BMW M6 has been spied once again. Due out in 2012, the new M6 will be available in both Coupe and Convertible variants. The new M6 will have its own attributes and characteristics in order to challenge the established rivals from Porsche, Audi, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz.

As seen in these new spy photos, 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 test mule showcases big brakes behind the larger wheels and M-signature quad-exhaust pipes out back.

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. A regular sprint to 60mph is not expected to take more than 4 seconds.

The 2012 BMW M6 is rumored to launch at the Geneva Motor Show next year.

    Why less hp for the m5 than the m6, they used to have the same isnt???

      They should both have the same – around 600HP with the same V8. Since no official HP number being released so safe to say around that number.

    It would actually be great to have different hp outputs rater than usual all the same , show some originality bmw , M6 600hp and M5 570hp….although M5 should have more because it will be heavier
