A bulletin issued to UK BMW dealerships announces the arrival of a trunk lip spoiler for the 2013 BMW M6 Coupe. The rear lip spoiler will increase down force at high speeds therefore improving the aero dynamics of the car.
BMW of North America has yet to make an official announcement, but we expect some news around this new addition within the next weeks. 2013 BMW M6 Coupe will arrive in late summer and will carry Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices $106,995 (including destination and handling).
The new BMW M6 comes with overall improved aero dynamics, as well as with a more aggressive front-end that dominates the road with its air intakes and the road-focused design of the hood. The kidney grille also receives a fresh design with paired blacked out kidney grille slats take their cues from the characteristic double-spoke design of the M light-alloy wheels. The newly designed M kidney grille now bears an M6 badge.
At the rear, the new M6 sports a lower profile and a redesigned diffuser. The taillights continue to wrap around the body, but with the L-shape now continuing onto the trunk.
The M6 Coupe is powered by a high revving 560 hp M TwinPower Turbo V8 mated to a 7-speed M-Double Clutch transmission (M-DCT). BMW said a manual option will be offered next year, but only for U.S. customers. 0 to 62 mph is achieved in 4.3 seconds while the spring to 124 mph (200km/h) takes only 13.1 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). BMW has not release the official MPG numbers, but the company says the new M6 Convertible consumes 30% less fuel than its predecessor.
The new BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible will be the first cars in the history of BMW M to be offered with optional M Carbon-Ceramic brakes which will come to market in 2013.[Source: bimmerfile]
