BMW M6

While many are sitting back, patiently waiting for the arrival of the BMW M6 , German tuner Alpina has been hard at work on a project that will shed some light on the future model. Their new B6 Biturbo Coupe may not be as impressive as the upcoming M6, which is rumored to deliver about 600 HP, but it’s here now. Plus, we’re sure Alpina left enough room for a new tuning package for the M6.

But back to their Alpina B6 Biturbo Coupe. The B6 is an evolution of the old 507 HP B6 cabrio , but uses an aluminum twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, equipped with MAHLE pistons and a high-performance cooling system. This setup is give for a total output of 540 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. With the extra power, the B6 Biturbo will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and will hit a top speed of 198 mph. Alpina has also opted for a Akrapovic titanium exhaust system that will make the car sound better than ever and, of course, a new set of 20" Alpina Classic rims fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

For the aerodynamic updates, the B6 BiTurbo Coupe has been fitted with a front spoiler, an integrated carbon fiber front splitter, and a rear spoiler with an optional rear wing. The interior was also revamped with a sport steering wheel, hand-stitched in LAVALINA leather, blue illuminated entry sills, a navigation system with preparation for Bluetooth mobile phone, USB audio interface, Xenon lights, and LED fog lights.

BMW M6 Convertible

It seems BMW has gotten the look of the BMW M6 just right after the questionable design used on the previous generation, so now it’s time for the Convertible version of the sports car to get testing. Our spy photographers were available to capture the drop top Beamer in a gray exterior paint, looking just about ready for its official debut.

The upcoming BMW M6 will feature a more aggressive design language defined by a larger air dam, a lower bumper, a new bullish nose, and a bulging bonnet with air intakes positioned at each corner. At the rear, the model will get quad exhaust pipes, a wider track, and a new bumper with an integrated rear diffuser. 20" wheels seal off the package.

As for the engine, BMW will be using the same turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 used in the M5 , however, the M6 will get about 600 HP, up from the M5’s 560 HP.

BMW M6 Coupe

The most powerful version in the BMW 6-Series line-up has been caught testing once again, this time wearing less camouflage than ever. The new BMW M6 will be launched by the end of this year and will be offered in both coupe and convertible versions.

Like with the BMW M5 , the M6 will be powered by a 4.4-liter V8 bi-turbo engine that delivers a total of 560 HP and 502 pound-feet of torque. It is expected to hit a top speed of about 186 mph, while the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is expected to be made in under 4.5 seconds.

The latest spy shots reveal the design of the front spoiler that is clearly more aggressive than the current 6-Series. Next to this, the new M6 will be distinguished by quad exhaust pipes, a wider track and bumper with integrated rear diffuser, and of course, the hallowed M6 badge.

Prior Design knows a thing or two about tuning BMW models, having done so with their previous works on the new 6-Series and the M5 .

Taking their experiences in hand, the German tuning firm has introduced their new program for the BMW M6, one that features an astoundingly flashy lime widebody kit.

Among the features included in the M6 package include a new front bumper lip, a pair of fenders, a pair of side skirts, a rear spoiler, a roof spoiler, and a trunk spoiler. According to Prior Design, all the parts included in the program are from Dura-Flex Epoxy Fiber Reinforced Plastic. This particular material comes with a top-grade surface finish that provides above-standard flexibility and high stability. And as an added option, customers can also avail of a new quad-tip exhaust system with an exclusive lime green finish with black racing stripes running along the center of the entire vehicle.

The powertrain for the M6 remains untouched, but it shouldn’t make much of a difference, especially for a car that already features a 5.0-liter V10 engine. This engine produces 500 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque with a 0-60 mph time of just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.

Back in September, a Canadian resident saw his $235,000 Ferrari F430 Scuderia confiscated after it was caught doing 124mph in a 37mph zone. Apparently, the owner of the Ferrari was racing a $75,000 BMW M6 that was also confiscated during the whole speeding ordeal. The two morons almost hit a mother walking with her children, so we don’t blame the Canadian police for taking away the two vehicles and giving the idiotic drivers 15-day driving bans.

"Our laws now work to take vehicles away from reckless drivers before they hurt someone, because they are demonstrating no regard for the safety of themselves or others on our roads," said one of the policemen. "This is probably the first time it’s been used at this level. We decided to use this particular new [forfeiture] section on this particular case, and I’m glad we did."

But there’s always a silver lining to every dark cloud. In this case, that silver lining comes in the form of an auction that saw the Ferrari F430 Scuderia being sold for $306,000 - quite a boost from its $235K price tag. The money will be divided between the vehicle’s owner and the government in an 80/20 split which is surprisingly fair considering the danger the driver put pedestrians in. Basically, the driver of the Ferrari walked out of there with more money than he paid for the car originally. We’re figuring, after the subtraction of the $235K, the owner saw a profit of about $10K. Depending on the fines given to him for his ignorant spectacle, he could actually make money on this deal.

The BMW M6 will be auctioned sometime next week. You never know, this guy may be able to turn a profit as well.

Meet the new M6 Hurricane RR - the world’s fastest 4-seat coupe. Based on a BMW M6 , the Hurricane RR is G-Power’s latest full speed creation. It may look familiar, considering this is practically the same kit that was blended in to the BMW M5 juts a couple of months, but this latest masterpiece is just a tad faster, making it that much cooler.

Following in the footsteps of theM5 Hurricane RR , the M6 can now develop a total of 800 HP and is capable of hitting a top speed of no less than 230 mph. This increase was attained by adding the same bi-supercharger system to the V10 engine as found in the previous Hurricane RR. This setup is cooled using a dual-flow, water-cooled charge air cooler system and works with a new set of lightweight, precisely balanced Mahle high-performance forged pistons.

The result of all that work is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph made in 4.35 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in 9.5 seconds, and to 186 mph in 24.9 seconds. The latter being the only time that was an improvement over the M5 Hurricane RR, albeit slightly.

The BMW Concept 6-Series Coupe is becoming a popular choice among car artists to flex their rendering muscles and work on what the next-generation BMW M6 ought to look like. We’ve already seen one rendering a few weeks ago that was based on the just-revealed Concept 6-Series Coupe. This time, Bimmerpost’s Alpine325ci takes a stab at his own version of the future M6.

Just like most of the M6 models we’ve seen in the past, Alpine325ci incorporates a number of design elements that are usually found in the M6, including a redefined bumper, fresh side skirts, and allow wheels, all of which he decided to add to the Concept 6-Series Coupe. Comparing it to the other rendering we saw before, Alpine325ci’s take looks fresher and less intimidating than the other rendering. Make no mistake, both score aces on our scorecard, although if we’re going to pick one, we’d choose this by a very slight margin.

BMW’s Concept 6 Series Coupe will only be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show next week and we already have some renderings of what the M6 Coupe could look like. We don’t want to say the artist was a little overeager with the rendering – it actually looks pretty awesome – but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to wait for the Concept 6 Series Coupe to be unveiled first. Not that it matters; we’re just saying.

In any case, the 2012 M6 rendering, courtesy of a very promising artist from Bimmerboost, doesn’t look a whole lot different from the 6-Series Concept Coupe with the exception of a new front bumper sans the longitudinal grilles present on the latter, the quad exhaust tips on the rear, and the addition of side skirts. Apart from that, we’re thinking that, as always, the biggest difference between the 6-Series Concept Coupe and the M6 lies on what’s under the hood of both cars.

We still have no idea what powertrain the 2012 M6 Coupe will come in, but it could come in something along the lines of a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with a few tweaks here and there to increase the car’s overall output. Like we said, all of this is still conjecture so we won’t dwell too much on it.

After 14,152 units built, it’s the end of the road for the BMW M6 . The sports car, in both coupe and convertible versions, was officially given the axe by BMW after six years of production for the coupe, and five years for the convertible.

The BMW M6 is powered by a 5.0 liter V10 engine that delivers a total of 500 hp at 7750 rpm and 383 lb-ft. of torque at 6100 rpm. The car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds for the coupe version, and in just 0.2 seconds longer for the convertible. Their top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.

The BMW M6 Coupé and BMW M6 Convertible received worldwide acclaim as dream cars for automotive enthusiasts with sporting ambitions. Out of the 9,087 coupes sold and 5,065 convertibles sold, a record of 3,528 coupes and 3,247 convertibles were sold on the US market. But the U.S. market shouldn’t mourn the loss for too long; the next generation 6-series will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September, and we can only hope to see an M-series spawn from that generation.

Being somebody that earns millions and millions of dollars to play basketball certainly has its perks, one of which is that the person can afford just about any car that catches his wandering eye.

Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum is no exception to that. With a salary of $13.8 million for the 2010-2011 season, Bynum can practically open the doors to any dealership in the world and drive off with that dealership’s most expensive ride. Yes, it’s unfair, but we’re not 7 feet tall and we certainly don’t play professional basketball for a living. Tough luck, eh?

In any case, of all the cars that he can choose from, Bynum decided to opt for a pretty nice ride, a modified-to-the-brim BMW M6 . Apparently, there are other endeavors pro ballers enjoy as much as putting the ball to the hoop; tuning up their already expensive sports cars.
