You don’t need to know loads about cars to acknowledge that next year’s flagship road-friendly sports car from German giant BMW, the M6 Coupe, is a keeper. We, for instance, at The Beautifulist were impressed by the fact that the upcoming model has preserved some of the key features on its four-door predecessor. Like the M5, which many have deemed sportier, the 2013 M6 Coupe BMW features the same type of engine, transmission and electronic specs as its fore-runner. To boot, it’s got a much sleeker design, geared toward the young, trendy and speed-loving drivers out there, who are sure to appreciate the switch to a two-door design.
And since comfort, adventure and a sense of fun seem to be the high-concept behind this car model, it is only fitting that it will first drive out through BMW plant gates as a convertible. The switch to the two-door version is inspired by the 1970s original M 635 CSi, one of BMW’s biggest selling successes to date. The coupe will follow the release of the cabrio model, but they will both feature 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 powerhouse that puts out 560 horsepower and 500 ln-ft of torque through their 19-inch alloy wheels. And if your fingers are itchin’ for a new car purchase, know that the vehicle will hit dealerships worldwide this June. Just in time for a spin under summer skies toward your holiday destination of choice.
