BMW's big and brash super-coupe M6 is mostly unchanged for 2015. It gains a mildly revised front bumper and GoPro camera app integration for the infotainment. The M6 has a ton of power, neutrally balanced handling, and is serious fun. It’s even available as a two-door coupe, two-door convertible, or four-door GranCoupe (not to be confused with the also four-door M5). It's not as easy to drive fast as the competition, namely the Mercedes SL63 AMG, Audi RS7, and but it's vastly more involving. It even still has hydraulic assist steering, over the numb electrical assist that is just about everywhere now. With the M drive select you can adjust the steering, damping, and throttle response to make it knife edged or daily driver sedate. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 making 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. You can get a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox or a six-speed manual.
Standard features include power and leather everything, including 16-way power adjustable heated leather front sport seats. There is a 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo with USB and navigation. You also get a sunroof (except on the convertible) , and power tilt and telescoping steering wheel. There is adjustable dynamically controlled damping and adaptive headlights as well.
A driver assistance package comes with lane departure and blind spot warnings, forward collision avoidance, and side and top view cameras. Stand-alone options include a choice of wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes. An available competition package boosts power to 575 hp, adds a black chrome exhaust, and lowers the suspension by 10 mm (with firmer springs and revised dynamic damper control) along with faster steering.
The M6 coupe, cabrio and Gran Coupe are all rated at 16.1 L/100 km city and 10.8 highway with the manual, and 17.3/11.5 with the dual-clutch box.
