Car and Driver aims to find out if the 2013 BMW M6 is truly better at the track than its cheaper brethren, the 2013 BMW M5. Both cars are powered by a high-revving 4.4-liter turbocharged unit that uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. The F10 M5 comes, in the U.S., with a manual and 7-speed DCT transmission, while the M6 is only offered with the latter option.

The new engine produces around 10% higher output than the V10 engine of its predecessors and torque is up by over 30%. At the same time, real world fuel consumption and CO2 are expected to be reduced by approximately 30%.

But which one is quickest on the track?

    Neither M6 nor M5 do it for me – they are just too big and heavy. Can’t wait for M3 to be released…

    BMW needs to do something because the upcoming E63 AMG with 4-wheel drive and the RS6 will both easily kick the M5’s ass.

      its not all about o-62. the rs6 would struggle against the x6 m and the m550ix on the track. why do you think audi has to use awd drive. because they cant make a real mans car. and Mercedes dont know to put all the power down, if you prefer 4wd what would you chose a rs6 or a m5 with the option of 4wd drive.
