BMWBLOG has just learned that the new BMW M6 will make its official debut next month, followed by a public unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

We have also learned that the new M6 will make us of a 7-speed M DCT transmission (no word on manuals yet) and will run from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in just 4.2 seconds. With the M Launch Control feature, we expect the high-end M model to get under 4 seconds.

Our sources say the car sports a very aggressive front fascia that is even more prominent in colors like Melbourne Red.

Exclusive: New BMW M6 debuting next month   0 62mph in 4.2 seconds

We continue to believe that the M6 Coupe and Convertible will be powered by 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. 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.

When it goes on sale, we predict the base price of the M6 to be above the $100,000 mark for U.S. customers.

    I hope 0-62 mph or 100km/h under 4 second , because is what M6 deserve , a real competion super car

    • BMWKILLSAUDI

      it will be under 4.2 sec. BMW always put there times higher than what they actually are. the current F10 m5 did 0 to 62 in 3.8 seconds on some track. this m6 will probably do the same or even quicker! :D ///M POWER BABY

      • Austin Powers

        With the M Launch Control – 3.6-3.9 sec! Yeah baby yeah!

      • Rs_typhoon

        With launch control f10 m5 acceleration 0 to 62 in 3.8 seconds and without launch control the current m5 did it in4.4 or 4.3 seconds! That is true!

    “we expect the high-end M model to get under 4 seconds.”

    I’m very tired so I might have misunderstood but didn’t you just say it will do it in 4.2 seconds?What do you mean by high end M model will there be more than one M6?

    I reread it a couple times and I still don’t get it :(. Sorry if I am sounding a bit rude.

      No worries, I can explain

      “With the M Launch Control feature, we expect the high-end M model to get under 4 seconds.”

      The M launch feature will make the car run to 62mph faster.

        I also have an unrelated question.

        Are the rumors of the Coupe, Softop and hardtop convertible still true? Will there be a hard top convertible like the M3?Also Is it just the coupe being announced next month or the softop as well or all 3 if the the 3rd on is even real.

        THANK YOU!

    You have got to be stupid to buy this car. For same money you can get a porche which is a proper sports car.n

      Every car has it’s niche, Porche is so small and impractical for those who want a fast car, but also have a child.  The M6 will be much roomier and much more power than any Porsche in it’s same price range. Panamera Turbo may be as fast, but is much more expensive and has a completely different look… plus does not come as convertible if wanted.  That’s why there isn’t just one car for sale, everyone has different tastes, needs and wants.

    4.2….whats the big fuss about going under 4,,,some people get off by numbers I guess…
    more power than m5 dreams are over,,,something I knew long time ago
