The 2017 BMW M6 is a grand tourer that provides luxury, comfort and phenomenal power. If you find yourself wanting some of the best of what BMW has to offer, you need look no further.
For that phenomenal power, the 2017 BMW M6 uses a snarling, turbocharged V8 that puts out 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. Not enough? Opt for the M6's optional Competition package and you'll get 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque from the same engine.
More than just bringing you a fire-breathing V8, the M6 also adds handling performance, including M-tuned active suspension, steering, brakes and an electronically controlled rear differential. These performance add-ons are balanced by a beautiful, comfortable cabin comprising the finest materials. BMW's iDrive interface provides Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity along with a 10.2-inch display, wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a Harman Kardon surround-sound system. Luxury and performance blend well.
One of the most exciting features of the 2017 BMW M6 is an increased top speed limit, set at 190 mph. And it now comes with an optional M Driver's package, which includes a full day of high-performance driver training at a BMW Performance Center. Returning this year for true purists, the M6 also offers the option of a manual gearbox at no extra cost. This option isn't available if you decide to go with the Competition package: You have to have the standard seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission there. But it's nice to know that you can opt for a manual if you want that extra bit of driving engagement.
At the Edmunds test track, a convertible M6 with the dual-clutch automatic transmission zipped from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. And though the coupe is 250 pounds lighter, it will likely make the sprint to 60 in about the same time. As you might expect from such a powerful car, EPA fuel economy estimates for the M6 aren't exactly astonishing. With the automatic, it will return 16 mpg combined (14 city/20 highway). With the manual, the EPA estimates are 17 mpg combined (15 city/22 highway). Both the coupe and convertible return the same numbers.
Because the M6 is a premium model to begin with, most features come standard. You can expect to see 19-inch alloy wheels, a front fascia specifically designed for the M series, adaptive suspension, automatic adaptive LED lights and more. The optional Executive package offers additional creature comforts, while the Competition package throws extra performance into the motor and suspension.
If you're in the market for a grand tourer that does it all and you'd love having an M badge on your pride and joy, look no further. Edmunds can help you find the perfect M6 to meet your needs.
