At the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, BMW introduces the 2016 BMW M6 Coupe Facelift in the beautiful Austin Yellow color. The BMW M6 is a 560 hp luxury and performance monster. It’s a gorgeous and powerful looking. Fortunately that aggressive flared wheel arches, athletic stance and turbocharged ///M Motor remain for those well heeled customers in the ultra-high-performance luxury segment.

For the 2015 M6 line, BMW adds a wide array of standard equipment including LED lights. BMW also adds new trim levels and leather that can be optioned with deviated stitching. BMW M offers new paints such as Jatoba Brown Metallic. BMW offers BMW Individual treatment for those who desire a more personalized appearance.

For those that like to shift themselves, BMW offers a 6-speed manual transmission for the U.S. market. M Carbon Ceramic Brakes are an option, and having used them to haul a M6 Gran Coupe down from 155 mph on Circuit of Americas race track to make a hard left hander, I can tell you first hand these things are like dropping a boat anchor out the back. If you drive solely on the street thought they might not be necessary but then neither is driving a 560 horsepower car that can reach 60mph in just 4.1 seconds from a dead start.

Sporting a front end with the now standard LED headlights and defined M-specific double-bar kidney grille, the BMW M6 also includes the unique M gills, side skirts, and the exclusive forged 19-inch M light-alloy wheels, with 20-inch M light alloy wheels optional.

Using a 4.4-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine which generates 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, the M6 Coupe and Gran Coupe will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about four seconds (4.3 seconds for the M6 Convertible). The BMW M6 transfers the engine’s power to the rear wheels via either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic.
