BMW represent the third generation to 6 series BMW. Yes not simple any, and technological, developed by sports division of a German motor-car manufacturer. Yes, it is a question of BMW M6 which for the first time have looked at “this world” in far 1983 (Е24). In 1989 in Munich took “compensatory holiday” and returned to project M6 (Е63/Е64) only in 2005 again to close in its summer of 2010, selling for five previous years of 9 thousand cars in a body “coupe” and 5 thousand cabriolets. Pictures and novelty specifications (a coupe and a cabriolet – F12/F13) in BMW are ready to give to the impatient consumer right now. And here to look at the car “alive” it will be possible or in March of 2012 in Geneva, or in April, but already in New York. Under a cowl at 2012 BMWs M6 Coupe/Convertible there is a same engine, as at sedan M5 «last assembly» – 4,4-litre V8 with two turbines. It gives out «on mountain» 560 h.p. of the maximum capacity in a range from 5750 to 7000 ob./minutes; its maximum twisting moment makes 680 Nanometers (at 1500-5750 ob./minutes). All power of a power-plant is transferred to rear wheels through 7-step robotised КП M-DCT with two clutches and active differential. In plans is also a 6-step mechanical gear box, but will not put it by cars for the European market. Such complete set will be accessible only to Americans.
Dynamics at new BMW M6 – at level. The coupe is capable to break a high-speed barrier from zero to hundred for 4,2 seconds, the cabriolet is dispersed from a place to 100 km/h for 4,3 seconds. Thus the maximum speed M6 in both cases is limited by a mark in 250 km/h. Who wants heat, can order a car with an additional package of options «M Driver’s», giving the chance to the car to be dispersed to 305 km/h.
In spite of the fact that as a part of BMW M6 of the previous generation there was motor V10, and new «Em six» is completed V8, last it on 10 % is more powerful. Thus, V8 in structure F12/F13 consumes approximately on 30 % less combustible (a coupe – 9,9 l/100 of km in the commixed mode; a cabriolet – 10,3 l/100 of km), than the 5-litre 10-cylinder unit.
New BMW M6 in the sizes is more than old. But it at all does not mean that she put on weight. On the contrary, dumped. For this purpose, truth, was necessary to make a roof at a coupe from strengthened carbon plasticity (CFRP), and at a cabriolet a cover of a box for collapsible top – of a special composite material on the basis of fiber glass (SMC). Both versions received aluminum doors and a cowl, and also the front fenders made of easy thermoplastic from developers. As a result equipped weight of a coupe of BMW M6 Coupe made 1850 kg, BMW M6 Convertible cabriolet – 1980 kg.
To make of the standard chassis 6-Series a hi-tech sports car of “M-series”, engineers of division of BMW M recustomized a suspender, used steering Servotronic with variable effort (three modes of behavior), put more «strong and quick» brakes. «The Bavarian motors» in the practice used for the first time a combination of so-called carbon-ceramic brakes (M Carbon-Ceramic) with 20-inch wheel disks from a light-metal alloy that allowed to dump about 20 kg of “live” weight. However such variant of equipment is accessible only in an additional set of options. In standard equipment on BMW M6 there are light-alloy wheel disks in diameter of 19 inches.
Than still a sports M-series from standard BMW 6-Series differs? Obviously, aerodynamic weather-cloth which by the car of the third generation looks a little more refined. New bumpers, moldings enter into it on thresholds and the choke tube behind with exhaust system – on two tips of a tube from each party. In front the car is distinguished by a new radiator enclosure, which modestly flaunts shield «М6». As a part of the previous generation of BMW M6 such was not. Stole, probably …
Interior 2013 BMWs M6 – “the derivative” of standard model strengthened by M-characteristic details. These are new sports seats and distinct from former an upholstery plus the changed design of a steering wheel, devices on the panel, the selector of drives.
In Europe (and consequently, and in Russia) new BMW M6 appears in the beginning of summer of 2012. In the same terms wait occurrence of a novelty and in showrooms in the North America. But Americans – they artful: in June start on roads cabriolet M6 and only in couple of months – a coupe. So is cooler!
