Site member hkyplaynazn was recently in Germany for european delivery and as part of the experience was given a tour of the BMW M Studio at M Headquarters in Garching, Germany. Garching is always a treat for BMW enthusiasts as there is not only the cool M cars and Individual displays within the M Studio, but also prototype/testing cars parked on the premise or driving around the neighborhood.
On this particular visit, hkyplaynazn was able to get a first look at an M6 convertible in Singapore Grey … CONTINUED

We’ve already seen plenty of the spy photos/videos of the M6 Gran Coupe, which together with the already revealed production 6-series Gran Coupe (photos 1, photos 2), gives us a very accurate idea of what the M6 Gran Coupe will look like. We previously posted some front and rear renders (reposted below) and … CONTINUED

It’s nothing major. It’s small things; it’s electronics underneath, little computer things. … CONTINUED

The all new 2012 BMW M6 coupe (official info thread) is the star of the BMW display at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow, based on our affinity for the car and how swarmed the car was. It’s no wonder given the M6′s hard-to-miss Sakhir Orange color, sculpted carbon fiber roof, and very aggressive bodywork.
And the F13 M6 coupe has got the performance to match its looks. Its 560hp/502 lb-ft torque propels it from 0-62mph in only 4.2 seconds (compared to M6 convertible’s 4.3 sec and M5′s 4.4 … CONTINUED
