The BMW M6 is back after a two-year absence, with the performance version of the German convertible scheduled to reach U.S. showrooms in June, just in time for open air weather.
The BMW M6 Convertible will bear a 2012 designation, the M6 Coupe will be badged a 2013 model, however, when it lands in the States late this coming Summer. Both models, the maker claims, will deliver track-level performance while setting “new benchmarks in dialing driving comfort…and fuel efficiency.”
The third-generation M6 models – which go into production a quarter-century after the original – will share the most powerful engine ever fitting into a production model from BMW M GmbH and will introduce an innovative Active M Differential to optimize rear axle power transfer. But while the new engine will bump up horsepower by 10% over the prior M6 V-10, and torque by 30%, fuel economy is also expected to improve by 30%,
