A new U.S. tuner plans to launch its operation with a highly modified BMW M6 Coupe (F13) tuning program, on the M6 which they’ve called the Risden 6R.
The Risden 6R M6 coupe features a functional aero kit, the most prominent part of which is the double rear trunk spoilers – one is the fixed duck tail CSL style spoiler, while the other is a retractable spoiler, deployed when needed to improve downforce and stability.
The 6R is also said to feature a fully adjustable suspension system, rollcage, and stripped down interior. The overall goal is to reduce the car’s weight, while adding a stiffer chassis/suspension and increasing power output.
So, it appears that the Risden 6R has been designed for track use and not just for … CONTINUED
BimmerWorld has started a build journal documenting the preparation of their V8 project M3 race car. They have gathered a lot of information and continue to do so.
Via JamesClay, BimmerWorld Team owner:
Red Line Oil has partnered with us on this project because they love the BMW marque almost as much as we do, and because they are also car guys who enjoy building something and running it around a track as more than something to slap a decal on. We have learned a lot from Red Line as we have interacted more frequently, and that too will show up here from time to time, not as a commercial message but hopefully more as a sharing of knowledge that is the reason we put Red … CONTINUED
Several frozen (matte) painted BMWs were recently on display at the BMW owned dealership in Munich, Germany. Seen by one of our members was a Frozen Red M6 coupe, Frozen Broze M5, and Frozen Blue M5.
Have a look inside.
M5POST member and F10 M5 owner noxredna shares with us his experience so far from living with the M5 on the street and at the track.
The just announced M6 Gran Coupe comes next summer to compete with the Mercedes CLS63 AMG. Until now, the CLS63 has really had no direct competition in terms of a car that closely matches its size, styling, performance, and segment.
Now that the CLS63 has some competition, we’ve put together this comparison of specs and photos for your reference. We don’t yet have final physical specs for the M6 Gran Coupe, but we’ve used the 6 Series Gran Coupe exterior dimensions and took a good guess as to the M6 Gran Coupe’s weight.
Here is the first live action video featuring the M6 Gran Coupe. Pretty cool one, so check it out inside.
We present to you the BMW M6 Gran Coupe!
In early summer 2013, the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe will join its famous BMW M5 Sedan and M6 Coupe siblings as what is perhaps the perfect combination of both. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is an ultra-high performance, four-door Coupe design with stunning aesthetics, race- bred technology, and the signature driving character of BMW M GmbH.
The M6 Gran Coupe is made instantly unique among four-door vehicles by its bonded-in carbon fiber composite roof panel, similar to the one found on the M6 Coupe. Between the doors is a cabin of sensational coupe-like design and first-class materials. The M6 Gran Coupe’s control placement and – equally important – control feel are second to none. The four-plus-one seating … CONTINUED
We’ve put together some renders of what the BMW M4 Coupe (F82) may look like, starting with the 4 Series Coupe Coupe and incorporating what the M3/M4 prototype spy photos and videos have revealed so far, along with some speculation/imagination.
We’ve given the M4 the 1M+M6 style front bumper spied on the F80 M3 prototypes, but the M4 bumper will likely look somewhat different. We’ve also incorporated the M sideskirts, wide fenders and hood bulge spied in the prototype photos. It may also get double slatted grilles with M4 badge and a shaped carbon fiber roof, both like on the M6 Coupe.

To recap, here is an updated list of what we know about the F80/F82 so far:

It currently features IND painted side grills, painted front grills, painted reflectors, and Eisenmann 102mm Race Exhaust with cross pipe.
