    Is the two-tone leather a BMW Individual option only? It’s absolutely stunning, potentially the most beautiful production interior I’ve seen.

    Best car BMW ever made so far! With V8 engine it outperforms E60 M5 and eats less fuel. I can`t even imagine how fast M6 Coupe is going to be.. faster than 458 Italia perhaps?
