Production of the BMW M6 has ceased, the company has confirmed. The M division’s 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V10 powerplant, that also powered the M5, has therefore been killed off as a result.
The BMW M6 concept made its debut at the 2005 Geneva motor show and was based on the BMW E63/E64 6-Series. BMW is expected to unveil its next-generation 6-Series at the Paris motor show in September.
Speculation has suggested that the new twin-turbo V8 – due to power the 2011 M5 – will also be used for the next 6-series. There will almost certainly be a replacement for the M6, but BMW cannot decided whether to grant it full 'M' nomenclature.
In India, the M6 is currently available in Coupe and Convertible versions. The M6 is powered by a petrol V10, 4999cc motor that churns out 507bhp and 53kgm of torque. The M6 Coupe currently retails at Rs 153.50lakh while the Convertible is priced at Rs 162.48lakhs (prices on-road Mumbai).
