The 2016 BMW M6 Coupe offers a winning combination of classic good looks and today’s
cutting technologies. The latest engineering techniques have been applied to
create a higher horsepower engine. The latest inventions are on the dash and
integrated into the safety systems.
BMW's M6 Coupe mixes high style with sporty flourishes and a distinctive front fascia. LED lights include adaptive headlights that can adjust to match the car’s actual trajectory. The side mirrors power-heat and power-fold. The wipers know when they are needed. The available convertible adds an easy-open insulated roof.
The M6 cabin is crafted with extended leather trim, carbon-fiber accents, a suede-like headliner, and premium leather upholstery. Details include a programmable thermostat, ambient lighting and push button start. Comfort is assured by the power-heated front seats with 16-way power adjustments and adjustable bolsters. Executive seating adds ventilation and fatigue-reducing active features. A heated steering wheel and a head-up display improve the driving experience. BMW manages to reserve 13 cubic feet for a larger trunk than you’d expect in two-door sports coupe.
A 10.2-inch display anchors the cockpit of the 2016 BMW M6 coupe. BMW iDrive interface features Bluetooth streaming audio with smartphone apps and online services. Surrounding the cabin with sound, the Harman Kardon system places 16 speakers. It comes equipped with iPod integration capability as well as HD radio and satellite radio. Navigation and real-time traffic wrap this up into one of the best systems available.
The twin-turbo V8 has cranked up the horsepower to 552, which is up 107 from its previous incarnation. Even torque has improved to 502 lb-ft of torque. Whether you prefer a traditional shifter or the automated manual, you’ll find these are ready to handle the speed of this intelligent powertrain. As always, BMW takes performance further than just what’s under the hood. The M6 Coupe also has a limited-slip differential, which Edmunds calls a real trick, and a number of suspension upgrades. Adaptive suspension dampers respond to real-time road conditions.
If you still want more power, the new Competition package really piles it on. The suspension and steering have been retuned for greater performance. The rear differential has been reworked for more speed. The horsepower has been increased by 48, hitting the 600 mark. Stability control reacts at a higher threshold to give you more time to direct the action when you are in M Dynamic mode.
Safety is a given with BMW’s record for excellence. To that, you can add the latest warning systems for lane watch and frontal collision. A camera system can generate around-the-corner views for low speed driving. A blind spot monitor watches incoming traffic. The night vision system can detect pedestrians outside of the reach of your headlights.
The 2016 BM6 Coupe is offered in one trim level. Several packages and many options are available to allow you to personalize your choice.
