2012 BMW M6 Coupe & M6 Convertible first video & new picturesTue, 14 Feb 2012 00:00:00 -0800
New video and new photos of the 2012 BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible
The 2012 BMW M6 was revealed at the weekend, and today we have the first videos of the coupe and convertible, and new photos too.
As is their wont, BMW choose Sunday morning to reveal the new M6 – as the BMW M6 Coupe and BMW M6 Convertible – with plenty of photos and most of the detail. Now, just 48 hours on, BMW has managed to come up with a pair of short promotion videos – one for the M6 Coupe and one for the M6 Convertible – and some extra photos.
The videos of the M6 are both short – just 30 seconds – and are similar, but one focuses on the M6 Coupe and one on the M6 Convertible, so we thought you’d like to see them both. And they do look good; dynamic and aggressive and better looking than than the previous V10 M6, which could look a bit like a Monkfish from the wrong angle.
BMW has also chosen to send us a new set of photos to go with the video. So we’ve added the action shots of the M6 Coupe and Convertible to the gallery of studio photos BMW sent us on Sunday in the photo gallery below.
Just as a reminder, the 2012 BMW M6 (which, we suppose, could be considered the 2013 BMW M6 even this side of the Pond as it won’t arrive in showrooms until September) pretty much gets the underpinnings of the M5, with the 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 producing 552bhp and 502lb/ft of torque, can get to 62mph in 4.2 seconds and, with the M Sports Pack, hit 189mph.
The new M6 Coupe will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month and the M6 Roadster at the New York Auto Sho in April. Both coupe and convertible should arrive in UK showrooms by September, with the new M6 Coupe costing £94k and the Convertible £99k.
