I have to say it looks stunning. Its nice to see the newer design of the front and rear bumper. I was expecting the power close to 600 ps but with that monstrous torque, who's to complain. The only thing i dont like is the //M badge on the front grill. Other than than it is simply perfect. I am looking forward to the M grancoupe. And as much as i love the cls design, the cls amg has no chance against this elegant beast.

And more expensive. I believe they also revealed a convertible version.

Its a very good looking car. And I love that roof and the rear. Doesn't look that fat or ungainly.

But still prefer the M5 to this. There is something about a family saloon capable of giving the 'sports cars' a bit of dust.

I would go with the M5 over this. Purely 1 reason - This is going to be a LOT ..LOT more expensive.
Just got news that the 640d is northwards of a crore. Imagine the landed cost of the M6 then.
The f10 M5 is 95-95 lakh ex showroom so its OTR cost is a lot more believable compared to the completely over the top M6.
The engine is the same and in my books its senseless to pay hoards more just for a little more dynamic pleasure.

This M6 looks menacing compared to the older generation which looked very sedate. What I've liked about the previous M6 was the exhaust note, simply intoxicating. Hopefully this should be better with the newer powerful engine.

What is with everyone saying they prefer the horrible-looking M5? This is the real thing! This or the M3. The F10 M5 looks just blah. Just like the sedan. An E60 M5 though... now that is a different story altogether.

Agreed! This M6 looks aggressive, if its expensive so be it. if I had the money, I would go for it blindfolded. M5 still looks like a regular 5 sedan. I would rather go for M3 V8 any day before they roll out the next one with twin turbo V6.

I just love the design of the roof on the M6. Its definitely a looker. And as it comes from the BMW M stable- Power and Handling should be a piece of cake.

A 6 series looks much more mean and this one wearing the M-badge is posing even more cool, definitely looks good than the rest except the 1-series M. Any revelations on the cost aspect?
