In terms of M cars at the 2013 Geneva show, BMW has brought out two M6 models – a Frozen Silverstone M6 Gran Coupe and a San Marino Blue M6 Convertible.
Unfortunately, there has been no sign of the F80 M3 concept, which many speculated may be making its debut here at the show. We’ve reported in the past that we believe (and still do) that the F80 M3 concept will instead bow in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Watch as a member’s F13 M6 Coupe takes down a Nissan GT-R from a roll (at 50km/h or 31mph) and in second gear. The GT-R may be godzilla from a dig (standing start), but the M6 eats godzilla on this day from a roll.

Now here’s a shade of color that’s rare even among the custom BMW Individual colors that we’ve seen ordered for late model BMWs – Oxford Green, a color that hasn’t been offered as a standard BMW color for years now.
We would never have guessed that it would look so good on the 2013 M6 (F13) coupe, but it actually works pretty well in our opinion. Not many exterior colors can pull off a champagne tan interior such as this, but Oxford Green happens to … CONTINUED
Car and Driver shares their comparison pitting the F10 M5 versus the F13 M6 at the Anglesey Circuit in the UK to see if the M6 is truly better at the track than the M5, as advertised.
The M5 and M6 share the same 560hp powertrain, but the M6 is billed as being even more suited for the track with its lighter weight (about 100 pounds), lower center of gravity (due to lighter carbon roof and lower roofline) and slighter faster acceleration (about a tenth of … CONTINUED
