If it’s not broken, why fix it? That seems to be the approach BMW had with the upgraded M6. One uses the term “upgraded” quite loosely. You’d be forgiven for wondering if the Bavarian automaker actually did anything.
If you look closely at the front, you’ll spot new LED headlights. And that’s about it really. It’s all business as usual, with flared arches, gills, a rear diffuser, four tailpipes and a heavy dollop of M badges. Park distance control is standard now too.
Power remains the same, with 412kW and 680Nm courtesy of a V8 engine with a turbocharger. The M6 goes from standstill to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds. The optional Competition Package takes things up to 423kW, adds a meaner exhaust system, M-light alloys and a tauter suspension.
More driver assistance systems have been thrown into the mix, including a new BMW M Laptimer app to analyse your driving in addition to a GoPro app which allows you to record hot laps. Finally, a new Jatoba metallic paint choice is offered as well as Merino Aragon full-leather trim.
