New BMW M6 to debut at Geneva

2012 BMW M6 (render)

The new BMW F10 M5 has gained much media love and coverage over the past year or so and we’ve all seen the production versions since its debut sometime in June.  BMW Blog has done much coverage on this and there are lots of great articles by BMW Blog on the F10 M5.  But not much is known of its (faster) sibling to come; the M6.  The above picture is a render or an artist’s impression of the M6, but we believe it will be close to the actual model that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 2012.

Here is what we can speculate:

Engine: bi-turbo V8 4395cc producing 552bhp and 501lb ft of torque that stretches from 1500-5750 rpm (very flat!!)  from the F10 M5.  the F10 M5 has a 0-60 mph of 4.4sec. we expect the M6 will do slightly faster.

Body: 2-door coupe but could see a 4-door Gran Coupe version (don’t know if that is good or bad…). With BMW ///M boasting new composite manufacturing skills, we should see lighter body and more Carbon Fiber use, especially on the roof.

Brake: Carbon brakes with “Blue” calipers (the new BMW ///M Signature?)

Using the very potent bi-turbo V8 from the F10 M5 brother mated with the seven speed M-DCT and the active Differential, the M6 will be blistering fast and styling doesn’t look too shaby!  I am just wondering if a Gran Coupe version wouldn’t cannibalize on the F10 M5 or is there enough demand for both. We can only wait.

BMW X6M by Vorsteiner

The E71 X6M by BMW is a mean machine to begin with.  Although, some may call it an SUV or a Cross Over, there is nothing “Utility” about the X6M.

It is all about Performance and with so much power to the rear wheels, I am not sure that this is the best Utility that you’d take to your next ski trip. But, it sure is a mean machine to blast through town and have enough room for that trip to grocery store that you promised your wife/girlfriend about.

Vorsteiner took on themselves to bring some character to the X6M.  They added an aggressive front lip and an all new vented hood (in carbon fiber; of course) and finished up the rear end with a new deck lid spoiler and a full carbon fiber diffuser to match the 4-tip exhaust that will scream “power” at the blip of the throttle.

Here is a video of the BMW X6M by Vorsteiner

This pictures perfectly captures the lines that make the 911 and perhaps I’d go as far as saying it has made “Porsche” what it is today.

Stretched R8 V10 Limo?

The Audi R8 V10 is a marvel of a machine and has all the ingredients that make it a super car.

The only thing it doesn’t do is probably haul a half-dozen of your best friends around town. Now, LimoBroker of the UK decided that this shouldn’t be the case and they have cooked up (or in the middle of cooking up) a stretched R8 V10 with 8 gullwing doors and 8 bucket seats. I should be surprised but this isn’t the first time as they have done this before with the Ferrari 360 Modena.
