2013 MotoGP M Award Winner Gets BMW M6 Coupe Frozen Black
In a historic finale to the 2013 MotoGP season, Marc Marquez was crowned world champion who also became the youngest ever to win the title. He managed to beat the reigning world champion in his rookie season, becoming the second rider to achieve this feat since Kenny Roberts in 1978.
Each year, BMW sponsors the racing series and the rider with the most number of pole positions is awarded a special "BMW M Award" in the form of a latest BMW M-Series. This year, the 20 year old Marquez was awarded a truly menacing BMW M6 Coupe in Frozen Black. What a rookie season it has been for Marc with the M6 being the icing on the cake.
Hopefully, Marc can handle this powerful four wheeler as well as he does powerful two-wheels sport bikes.

The BMW M6 Coupe features a 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 coupled to a seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission. The M6 awarded to the 2013 MotoGP world champion gets a unique frozen (matte finish) black treatment on the exterior and Merin Sakhir Orange leather on the upholstery. Luckily, the interior theme also matches with Honda Racing’s factory colors.
Having said that, there’s 560 horsepower on tap and 502 pound-feet of torque, allowing the almost 4,000-pound coupe to accelerate up to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. BMW’s M Division revised the exhaust and improved power delivery over the standard 6 Series. Large air-intakes and all-LED headlights make up the front. The quad-exhausts on the rear do a great job when it comes to providing acoustic pleasure.
