There is only one major beef that owners have with the current BMW M6; its stock exhaust note. The fairly tame sound coming from the quad exhaust pipes doesn’t do the M6 any justice, even though it is a perfectly capable sports car. It simply sounds somewhat tranquil.
Some aftermarket companies certainly jumped on this opportunity, giving us a taste of that V8 rumble through their more open, full exhaust system solutions. Akrapovic is a well-known name in the exhaust market and they’ve given us a taste of their knowledge and expertise with this BMW M6 exhaust system. Their systems allow for better performance and a better sound, while also removing excess weight compared to the stock exhaust. But they come with a hefty price tag, usually in the thousands of dollars, depending on the type of exhaust.
The BMW M6 is equipped with a 4.4 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine delivering 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. The Launch Control feature lets your engine achieve maximum acceleration from a standing start, so you can brandish every lb-ft right off the line. The car accelerates from a standstill to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds.
