In case you are one of those strange people without access to either a television or the internet (in the latter case, how the hell are you reading this????), there is a quirky Canadian show called How It’s Made: Dream Cars that is beloved throughout the world. Tonight, they’re looking at the BMW M6, and I am enthused…
When your view suddenly gets obscured by your own hood at speed on a race track, and you lose control of the car, oh hon. Prepare thyself. Clench thy buttocks. This one may smart a bit.
BMW is reportedly killing the manual transmission in both the M5 and M6 models once production ends later this year, and it is most likely never coming back.
Any concerns you may have had about the hybrid BMW i8 being only a sports car with supercar looks need to be relinquished, because the carbon-fiber BMW of the future is about to be packed and powered by the engine out of the M6 — a 4.4 liter V8.
Welcome to Little Car in the Big City, where I highlight fascinating cars I found walking around a town that is known for being bigger than everything else, but where every car is fighting to stand out: New York, New York.
Remember when a BMW M6 driver smashed his own car with a sledgehammer because he claimed BMW refused to fix its rough driving and shifting problems? He restored the car and smashed it again.
As far as we know, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe Horse Edition doesn't include an actual horse. It's more in honor of the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse. Although for $458,000, a pony would be nice, too.
We all have our own biases, I'll be the first to admit. I really, really did not like the second generation BMW 6-series. It looked fat and slow, in every way possible. But the third 6er, especially in M form, looks as far from that as possible. It looks lean, slick, and fast.
It turns out that there can be some hidden consequences when you destroy your own car with a sledgehammer and an axe. For instance, sometimes you have to return the car in good condition.
Italy-based businessman Pourmohseni Hadi complained of vibrations, rattles, jolts, and bad shifts in his 120,000 Euro ($160,000) 2008 BMW M6. BMW Italy jerked him around and gave him no fix, so he smashed his car with an axe and a sledgehammer in protest.
You. Yes, you there reading this. You seem like the type of person that whines about the demise of the manual gearbox in performance cars. Am I right? Well, BMW has heard your complaints and is actually going to trust you with shifting gears yourself in the M6. Just be careful.
If you're going to show off in a hot car, you should probably take a few spins around an empty parking lot to make sure you know what you're doing.
We've seen a lot of videos with the woman-freaking-out-in-fast-car formula. This one, starring the mega fast new M6, is something special.
My gripe with BMW has never been about performance. Nor has it been about quality. I have just never connected with the styling, finding their appearance dull and uninspiring. And I'm not a fan of bland. I do not own a beige pair of anything. But there is one BMW that has remained an exception to my grievance. The BMW…
The new BMW M6 convertible must be a lot of fun to drive, because one auto journalist from the Pacific Northwest managed to hit 136 MPH on a public street during a vehicle launch in California last month. We have a record of this not because the journalist admitted to it in an article, but because he got popped by the…
If you're rich enough, you don't have to worry about anything. You can buy an expensive car and little winged fairies will hold it upon hillsides for you with a golden net while you're at the club.
This is it. The new third generation 2012 BMW M6. Armed with a big TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, the new M6 is here to deliver a 560 HP ass-whooping to the CTS-V and any other coupe with the balls to get in the ring with this Teutonic two-door. But, if you're hoping for a manual — don't hold your breath. At least not…
