A GT cruiser or an M powered rebel?
We love the M6 as it combides the monsterous power of the a 4.4-litre twin-turbo 32V V8 with huge sofa-like seats in a luxurious leather-clad interior scattered with modern carbonfibre trim. These have an already very well equipped specification as standard with the £95K list price but after upgrades, like in the case of our example, such as full Merino leather, soft close doors and B&O sound, they push them easily over £100K. Now 6 years on it can be can seen as somewhat of a bargain at £29,995 for the MK2.
With this model M6, BMW replaced the 5.0-litre V10 which translated to more economy with claims of nearly 30MPG but realistically its probably closer to 20MPG. It's capable of 0-62mph in 4.2secs when the pedal is to the metal and there's a number of driver modes depending on your mood. The combination of 552bhp, rear wheel drive and sharp steering gives a fun and well balanced driving experience. Our 2012 example is fininished in stunning "Alpine White" with full black Merino leather and perhaps the best of both worlds, pure comfort and exhilerating driveability?
