The new 2013 BMW M6 coupe (F13) and convertible (F12) have been priced for the UK and German market.
The new M6 Coupe will start in the UK at £93,795 and in Germany at EUR 123,600.
That’s almost 30% higher than the UK F10 M5, which starts at £73,040.
The new M6 enters the range above the flagship in the ‘regular’ 6 Series range, the. It also replaces the tough-as-nails E63/E64 380kW/520Nm V10 M6, retired back in 2010.
The coupe and convertible get the same engine and drivetrain, with both vehicles sharing a 4.4 L bi-turbo V8 engine producing 560 hp.
BMW claims the M6 coupe reaches 60 mph in about 4.2 seconds and the convertible in 4.3—those figures are likely conservative. For reference, the company projected a 4.4-second 0-to-60 time for the new M5; in our hands, the über-sedan hit 60 in just 3.7 ticks.
The engine is mated to a 7-Speed M-Double Clutch Transmission and an innovative Active M Differential. A manual option might be offered for U.S. customers.
