Here’s something you don’t see very often, a very sought after car gets spied completely undisguised. It’s one of our favorites, the upcoming BMW M6, in convertible form.
The snapshots came courtesy of Autospies who were lucky enough to be near the Bayonne Military Ocean Terminal in New Jersey at just the right time.
That’ll be the right time to spot a completely naked F13 BMW M6 in the area, among a sea of Bavarian products, including a 2012 M5.
As expected, the next generation BMW M6 sticks very closely to its lesser 2012 BMW 6 Series in terms of proportions but wears a special body kit.
The new body kit is more aggressive looking than the M division has us used to. It’s far from your typical tuner paradise, but the sporting traits of the BMW M6 convertible are now much easier to spot.
After all, no matter how up-class and luxurious your motor is, when it has vents in its fenders, we’re not talking about discrete performance are we?
Other wise, the M division makeover of the BMW 6 Series Convertible seems to follow the usual rules. Four exhausts at the back, enormous wheels and brakes and a distinctive look for the exterior.
Still to be confirmed, but the BMW M6, in either coupe or convertible form, will be powered by the same engine as the M5.
This means there’s 560 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque coming from a 4.4 liter V8 with twin turbos. That’s enough performance for a 0 to 62 time that’s well under 4 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.
The latter is electronically limited, with a possible package option to take it up to 180 mph and in non restricted form 200 mph could be possible.
