The photo comparison tradition we have started years ago continues today with a new installment: 2013 BMW M6 versus the previous generation M6.
Compared to the previous E63/E63 M6, the new F12 and F13 models have slightly grown in size. The F13 Coupe now measures 4,898 mm in length, 1,899mm in width and 1,374 mm in height compared to 4,871 mm, 1,855mm and 1,372 mm for the previous model.
The F12 Convertible is also marginally larger than its predecessor, but slightly lower: 4,898 mm length, 1,899 mm width, 1,368 mm height versus 4,871 mm, 1,855mm and 1,377 mm.
Design wise, the new BMW M6 kicks the level of sportiness a notch higher, with a much 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 2013 BMW M6 shines with its interior design which can be described as xtremely sporty and luxurious. The driver-oriented cockpit reminds of the sporty allure of the M6, while the luxurious and premium feel are given by the newly developed M sports seats, Merino extended leather upholstery, door sills with “M6” lettering, an M driver’s footrest, exclusive carbon fiber interior trim and the BMW Individual roof liner in Anthracite.
In our opinion, the interior design of the new M6 is a huge step forward.
The new F12 Convertible retains the soft top.
The new 2012 BMW M6 Convertible will be the first to reach US BMW Center showrooms in June 2012, followed by the Coupe in September.
