It's amazing to think that, in the past 25 years, the horsepower sum of the two most iconic German GT cars has risen by more than 500 equines. But then, together they've also added nearly 1,300 lbs. Yes, they're very different cars these days. » 2/07/13 3:40pm 2/07/13 3:40pm

2013 BMW M6 Coupe: The Jalopnik Review

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… » 9/21/12 12:00pm 9/21/12 12:00pm

The 2012 BMW M6 Wants To Kick The CTS-V Coupe's Big American Ass

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.

Teen-age BMW M6 drifting, head-on edition

Our story about the 11-year-old Audi R8 driver spurred Dan to send us this clip of himself drifting his father's BMW M6. Not only is the driving skill better, so's the fatherly camerawork. Thanks Dan! » 7/15/11 1:00pm 7/15/11 1:00pm

BMW's forgotten mid-engine supercar for sale on Ebay

When it was introduced at the Paris Auto Show in 1978 the BMW M1 was the first mid-engine vehicle BMW had ever built. 33 years later, the low production M1 is the only mid-engine vehicle the company has ever built.

G-Power's New (Insert Superlative Here) BMW M6

In the battle of ridiculous tuner shop superlatives, tuning shop G-Power takes the cake with the BMW M6 Hurricane RR, calling it the "world's fastest four-seat coupé." Really? Could we possibly get any more infantile infinite in our regression here? » 11/12/10 1:30pm 11/12/10 1:30pm

BMW To Pimp Performance Cars Like Hookers

We banned the word "pimp" for aftermarket modifications some time ago, but no such ban exists for legitimate uses of the term. Like when BMW starts a by-the-hour car rental program in Germany that includes the 500hp M6. [WSJ] » 10/25/10 10:30am 10/25/10 10:30am
