Your brother already had the 6 series and getting a M6 would be the same feeling and looks on the overall. enginewise a beast. R8 on the other hand he is yet to taste and the R8 V10 engine is a monster, but practically get the V8(exhaust note is far better). I just saw a White R8 with red interiors here in bombay and the car looks stunning. Your brother likes all his cars white and thats why i am mentioning it to you. If the R8 then Carbon fibre side panels please. It would look like a true beauty.
I think they M6 and R8 V10 are similar ain't it ? V10 versus a V10 ?

The R8 V8 surely does better but why not buy a car with a bigger engine considering the fact that there is already a V8 standing in the garage ?

But thank you so very much for the information and valuable opinion . Surely will get it into consideration !
R8 V10 should be similar in terms of engine specs bro ! V10 vs a V10 , aint it ?

The V8 definitely sounds better but he already has a V8 ( the m3 ofcourse ) why not get a bigger one ?

I thought you were compareing the out going 6 series, Sorry my bad. A V12 would do the trick then, I would suggest Lambo dealership or the Ferrari boys can do the trick . R8 v10 good but the exhaust notes are not intimidating atall. but then again it depends.

This looks like the one that was in Chennai. I just love the rims on the Superleggera. I can only imagine how the mad yellow Lambo would stand out in your brother's comparatively "understated" white garage. :clap Great choice your brother's made. Have fun with it. Drive safe.
