Turner BMW F13 M6 Project Car

** Updated 7/13/2015 **

The BMW M6 has been considered a flagship M car since its introduction in 1983. Since that introduction, the BMW M6 has always been acclaimed throughout it's lifespan for it's somewhat aggressive lines and styling, giving rise to it's nickname the "Shark Nose". The current F13 M6, the successor of the E63 M6, is the third generation in the lineage of the M6. Between 1990 and 2004 BMW removed the M6 from their model lineup, reintroducing it with the S85 V10 engine at the Geneva Auto Show in 2005.

This latest M6 comes from a background of high performance coupes which means it has an extremely high expectation to live up to. Both the E24 and E63 M6s set the bar for performance during their time of production. The E24’s 3.5-liter inline six, a modified version of the M88 used in the legendary M1 super car, produced 282 hp and over 250 lb-ft of torque. In 2005 the E63 was introduced with the extremely high-revving, S85 5.0-liter V10, producing a whopping 500 hp and 384 lb-ft.

This latest M6 comes with the S63TU which is a twin turbo 4.4-liter V8 producing 560 hp and just over 500 ft-lbs of torque, edging out the previous E63 generation by 60 horsepower and 116 ft-lbs of torque. In addition to the added power, there is quite a bit of added weight as well; the F13 M6 is over 400 lbs heavier than its predecessor.
