The start of the week is the perfect time to challenge the BMW purists in a big way. And this duo of Matte Purple builds will certainly play with the emotions of those that love to color within the lines. For others, the freer spirit BMW fans, these two cars will actually show everything that’s good and wrong with the aftermarket industry today.
The outgoing BMW 6 Series (in its current form) is powered by a 4.4 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, delivering 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. By utilizing its Launch Control feature – letting your engine achieve maximum acceleration from a standing start – you can brandish every lb-ft right off the line, accelerating from 0 to 62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.3 seconds.
While some will argue the BMW M4 is still rocking hard, the successor is nearing its birth date as well. The vehicle is powered by a 3.0 Liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, delivering 425 horsepower and 486lb-ft of torque. It is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds. Both the BMW M4 and the BMW M6 will accelerate to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h). For many, this is the perfect foundation for an aftermarket build.
As stated previously, the owner of this dynamic duo went in a different direction. Both of his vehicles feature a rather interesting Matte Purple wrap, reminiscent of the launch color for the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. In true fairness, both coupes look rather stylish and the matte purple accentuates perfectly aggressive and beefy lines of both cars. The BMW M6 features a set of Ferrada FR8 wheels. The BMW M4 on the other hand comes with a set of Ferrada FR5 wheels. Additionally, both vehicles feature an upgraded suspension system, so they are lowered and sit pretty much stanced out.
While not everyone’s cup of tea, the builds give us a great perspective of today’s aftermarket industry. It needs to be flashy, it needs to scream and it needs to attract attention. But this also means that the parts or work needs to be flawless. The same principle ensures the Matte Purple wrap or the wheel fitment in both cases is on point, adhering to enhanced demands from this owner.
