BMW M6 – Motorpoint Car Review
From the team that brought you the M635 CSi in the ’80s BMW has brought to life the M6. With it’s 5.0-litre V10 engine and the custom-made parts it pushes this model into the same league with the makers of other fast luxury cars. This beauty is set to give the boys at Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division a run for their money.
Now we get to how well the car actually performs on the road and the results are very promising. The M6 drives well when you’re cruising along the highways and does not disappoint when it tears down the tracks on your local circuit. To experience the full 507bhp the driver has to just press the button located near the gear level and you will enjoy the smooth transition from the 400bhp you would have been driving at earlier. Because of the changes done to the weight of the car the M6 is able to achieve the 0-62mph milestone a tenth of a second faster than the M5 model. What helps achieve this is also the carbon fibre roof which reduces the weight by 5 kilograms. The designers have also included a F1-replica launch control facility that turns the M6 into menacing race devil on the circuit. As for the M6′s handling it comes with a stiffer chassis and its’ extra chassis bracing rounds out its weight to 220 kilograms. This model also comes with two options for its steering default assistance mode which depends on the electronic damper control (EDC). The EDC gives the car a more suave flair rather than the run-of-the-mill different assistance mode of just changing speeds. The M6′s dynamic stability control comes in three modes; namely the default the MDynamic and being completely disengaged. Even though it may seem that you have an immense amount of energy from the car from all it’s power it drives perfectly within the normal range on highways and city roads.
The M6 comes with the perks of a luxurious ride with comfortable room for a two-plus-two 450 litres in its luggage compartment heated leather seats that can be adjusted electronically and can be used as an automatic car as it comes equipped with the sequential manual transition. The M6 also comes with a head-up display a lacquered carbon fibre trim on its dashboard and a satellite navigation system. Other standard features like the six airbags automatic stability control and traction control automatic headlight activation and the like are included.
With its six airbags and their electronic safety systems the drivers and passengers of the M6 are safe behind the wheel of this performance machine. It comes with the obligatory parking censors brake lights that become brighter with harsher brakes oil level warning puncture warning and its adaptive bi-xenon headlights.
Although it may seem daunting with all the gizmos and gadgets included on this model but to the high-performance enthusiast this car should be on your list for top choices as long as you have 80 000 pounds sterling and a few months to spare.
