The all-new BMW M6 will be the most powerful super-coupé in BMW’s history, says UK magazine Autocar. The new M6 will be unveiled this year with sales beginning in 2013.

An insider reveals to Autocar that the M6 will make use of the same powerplant as the F10 M5 which goes on sale this summer, producing 560 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque ( 680 Nm) at 1500 rpm. Same insider says the M6’s rear-drive chassis has been tuned extensively at the Nürburgring and it has the dynamic proficiency to cope with prodigious power outputs.

The super-sporty M6 will feature carbon fiber roof and body panels that will help with weight savings. A carbon-ceramic brake system and lightweight ally wheels are also part of the package.

Is the M6 BMW’s own version of a supercar? At Detroit Auto Show, same insider says “M wants to build its own car. BMW has a great heritage of super-coupes and the M6 is the latest part of that. But we also want to do something that we can call a ‘super sports car’.”

Can the M division put together a compelling case for an M supercar? Time will tell, but in the mean time, stay tuned for the M6 Coupe debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

    O BOY! A BIMMER SUPER CAR, TWIN TURBO V8 WITH 750 HP AND 595 TORQUE!!!!! I WISH..

    not that 560HP isn’t enough,  but giving a little more juice is very easy on these twin-turbo monsters, so make it a round 600HP and call it whatever you want.
    Not that i would be buying it, unless somebody tells me the 6 magic numbers for this coming Saturday lottery :-)

    still, its time to make a distinct difference between the soccer-mom M5 and the über-exclusive M6.

    soccer-mom you ask ? well I have a very good friend and she has an E60 M5 and takes her son to soccer practice.  She is a soccer Mom and drives an M5.

    Looking forward to it, Im sure BMW M will not disappoint us as usual. I hope they do build their own car, it will blow the SLR and R8 out of the water.
