From the E24 to the F12…no F13…wait nooo F14! Whatever chassis number they call it for the different designs (cabriolet, coupe, GT) its the M6 we are talking about. Looking better each year, the M6 is an M5 that hugs you with all its might and gives you a race car sport like feel than a family event in the M5.
I love it that bmw is still trying to stick with manuals, well at least testing popularity in the US. This also confused me when it was only the Gran Coupe that had the option. Usually sedans would be the ones least likely to have a manual transmission….whatever maybe in the 2015 models it will go to all models; doubt it. The V8 engine is an s63 so different from the outgoing e90/e92 M3’s which, will add value to these M3’s down the road. The only problem I have is that is not as agressive as it used to look. The M-spec models look a little more aggressive that the actual M-powered vehicles.
