Vehicle Make/Model Specifications:
Make: BMW
Model: M6

The motorsport division of the German automotive manufacturer BMW has sure been busy perfecting the M6, which is a high-performance version of the 6-Series automobile. The M88/3 engine, a modified version of the M88/1 taken from the BMW M1 was placed in the E24 chassis of the BMW 6-Series, creating the M6. This development was made in 1983. This daring move paid off given that the M6 has continuously received positive reviews all around. It has been recognized throughout its lifespan for being an elegant and yet aggressive vehicle. It earned the 'aggressive' title from the "shark-nose" styling. The elegance is easily a product of its well-appointed luxury features and its quick performance. To distinguish the M6 from other E24 models, look for a larger air dam and M6 badges on the grille and back, as well as a subtle spoiler. At the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, the newest BMW M6 to join the family made its debut. It is based on the BMW E63/E64 6-Series, which was introduced in 2004. BMW has claimed that the car will accelerate from zero to sixty mph in 4.6 seconds. Like other BMW models, it has an electronically limited top speed 155 mph. However, it you dare to remove the limiter, it will reach top speeds up to 206 mph. However, people have managed to achieve an outstanding top speed of 211.27 mph, as well as multiple road tests that have shown that the M6 accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds. Lastly, the M6 is equipped with the same 'power button' as the M5, which modifies the throttle response. From ignition, the car delivers an impressive 430 hp (298 kW), but engaging the power button allows the full 507 hp. This car delivers top performance for those willing to take the time an experience it.
