BMW M6 GTR Video Review
Not cars, but instead we create 'emotion and passion', that is, the GTR.
What is a car? What is GTR? 4 years have passed since the debut of GT-R, constantly progressing to the next level at top speed. During the process, we would always step back to where it all started, and would ask ourselves this question. The joy of driving cars, unlike trains and airplanes, comes from actually being able to steer the vehicle yourself. No matter how the times may change, the desire for the excitement of driving will never change. I want GT-R to be the car that most fulfills that desire in the world. To create a car that delivers the most emotion and passion; the only reason why we continue to take GT-R to the next level. In Japan, there has long been a culture of Omotenashi (hospitality), represented by the Way of tea. Only in Japan, is Omotenashi taken to a new level, turned into a form of pure art. We see 'NISSAN GTR' as 'NIPPON GT-R.' The soul of Omotenashi in the Japanese DNA is embedded into GT-R in its ultimate form through our diligence and spirit of encouragement. We have been, and always will. This is us, our quest; taking GT-R to the next level.

GTR Engine
By improving the GT-R’s engine efficiency, its fuel economy has been raised to 8.6km/L (tested under Japan’s 10-15 mode) or 8.7km/L (in JC08 mode), while engine output has been significantly improved to 404kW (550ps)/6,400rpm with maximum torque of 632N・m(64.5kgf・m) from 3,200 to 5,800 rpm. Engine response and torque at mid- and low-speeds, and power at high revolutions, has been significantly improved, mainly due to:
  • Improved intake efficiency - Air flow resistance has been reduced by adding an intake manifold fitted to the head of each unit and the use of resin in the enlarged air intake duct for the intercooler, and
  • Improved exhaust emissions efficiency and enhanced control - Air flow resistance has been reduced through a more compact underfloor catalyzer which improves emissions efficiency and reduces weight. For improved exhaust valve cooling performance, a newly-designed metallic sodium-filled valve has been adopted. Valve control timing, the air mixture ratio and ignition timing have been improved as well.
The new BMW M6 concept made its debut at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the BMW E63/E64 6-Series, introduced in 2004. It shares the same 5.0 L V10 S85 engine and SMG III gearbox with the E60 M5, and produces 514 hp (383 kW) / 520 N·m (380 lb·ft).

BMW claims it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds (0-60 mph: 4.1 s [Road & Track [2/06]) the top speed can reach 205 miles per hour (330 km/h) (limited to 155mph).

The BMW M6 has the same 'power button' as the M5 which modifies the throttle response. From ignition, the car delivers 399 bhp (298 kW; 405 PS), but engaging the M button allows the full 373 kW (507 PS; 500 hp). It weighs 3,770 lb (1,710 kg) thanks to a carbon fibre reinforced plastic roof panel as well as thermoplastic front wings, aluminum doors and bonnet (hood) and compound boot (trunk) lid.

The carbon fiber and other light materials are used in places like the bumpers and roof that are far from the center of gravity and/or high up, so that they not only reduce the overall weight but improve the handling by reducing the moment of inertia and lowering the center of mass height.

It was offered as both a coupe and a cabriolet. A lightweight CSL version of the M6 was expected to be released in the near future, however, BMW has since officially stated that no such version of the M6 will be built, as there is currently no market for such a model. The 2007 coupe is expected to have a 0-60 mph time of about 4.1 seconds (4.6 convertible)(Road and Track, March 2006). Both the M6 coupe and convertible can be visually distinguished from the 630i, 645Ci and 650i by their deeper front valance with air intakes, more contoured side sills, aerodynamic side view mirrors, an additional rear valance with diffuser and the absence of front fog lights.

In the 2010 model year, the M6 was the second-most expensive BMW sold in the U.S. after the 760Li ($137,000), with an MSRP of $108,150 for the convertible and $102,350 for the coupe. In the U.S. the M6 had one of the largest residual value drops at 19%, as it had little if any changes since its 2006 introduction

Production of the M6 ended in mid 2010, with sales over the five year run totalling 9,087 for the coupe and 5,056 for the convertible.

2012 BMW M6
What is 2012 BMW M6:
The most powerful 6-series, sharing its underpinnings with the next M5; coupe and convertible versions will be offered.

Why BMW M6 matters:
It’s as close as BMW gets to a muscle car.

Platform: A two-door version of the 5-series sedan’s F10 platform, dubbed F12.

Powertrain: The first BMW M6 was equipped with a 256-hp inline-six, the second generation was powered by a 500-hp V-10. The new M6 will have a nearly 600-hp, 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. Sound familiar? It’s basically the same engine found in the X5 M and X6 M.

Competition: Audi RS5, Cadillac CTS-V coupe, Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG, Porsche 911 Turbo.

What might go wrong: The turbo engine may be less thrilling than the high-revving V-10, and the handling sharpness may be dulled by  weight, as in the new 5-series.

Estimated arrival and price: Look for it in 2012 with a price just north of $100,000.
