The new 2013 BMW M6 Coupe [Live Images] image

Yes this is the new 2013 F13 BMW M6 Coupe.

If you noticed a slightly new look to the F13 M6 coupe, it’s the new trunk spoiler that it now receives as standard equipment in order to improve aerodynamics.

The new M6 gets a high-revving 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that’s good for 553hp (560PS) linked to seven-speed M double clutch transmission driving the rear wheels.

BMW quotes a zero to 100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 4.2 seconds and to 200km/h (124mph) in 12.6 seconds along with an electronically governed top speed of 250km/h (155mph) or 305km/h (189mph) with the M Driver’s Package for the Coupe.

Even with the increase in horsepower, the 2013 M6 sees improved performance in fuel-efficiency with fuel consumption of the respective predecessor models cut by more than 30 per cent. The improvement comes from the use of Auto Start-Stop function and comes standard on both the Coupe and Convertible.

Like the new M5, the M6 will get the Getrag six-speed manual in the United States by the middle of next year; North America is not due to get the optional Drivers Package, which takes the top speed limiter from the standard 155 mph up to 189 mph; and starting in the middle of 2013, M cars with the double clutch gearbox will finally be given a clear and present no-duh P button to be certain the car is in Park.
