“TOP DOWN. FOOT DOWN. EYES WIDE OPEN.”
The 560-hp response of the M6's 4.4-liter V-8 engine is nearly instantaneous. The optional Competition Package raises the bar further, producing 575-hp. Double-VANOS infinitely variable camshaft timing and High Precision Direct Injection play in concert with patented Valvetronic individual intake valve control that eliminates the need for a less-efficient throttle plate. The result is another M characteristic: linear, instantaneous delivery of a massive 500 lb-ft of torque over a broad rpm range (6,000-7,000 rom), from idle to high revs. This results in 0-60 mph of just 4.1 seconds, or 4.0 seconds with the Competition Package.
This racing-derived 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) can be personalized by the driver to match a wide range of preferences, from Comfort to Sport +, and can operate in either automatic or sequential manual mode. In the manual mode, you shift like a Grand Prix driver by flicking paddles just behind the steering wheel, without taking your hands off the wheel.
To supply a battery with electrical energy, the generator (alternator) is usually driven using engine power, which requires fuel. With Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator produces electricity when the driver brakes or takes a foot off the accelerator. Kinetic energy that was previously unharnessed is transformed into electrical energy, then fed into the battery. In this way, electricity is generated without consuming fuel.

It's a sound experience as remarkable as the BMW driving experience. Unlike traditional stereo systems, the optional Harman Kardon® Surround Sound System uses vehicle-specific equalizing, and a powerful 600W amplifier, to deliver powerful, high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth. The result: a scintillating audio performance that pumps the highest definition soundtrack to the open road. The 16-speaker system also includes six tweeters, six mid-range speakers, two bass speakers located under the front seats, one mid-range speaker and one tweeter in the instrument panel.
LED technology is used exclusively for both high and low beams, as well as in all four Corona headlight rings. At speeds of up to 35 mph, LED cornering lights automatically light up the side of the road when turning. At faster speeds, the Adaptive Headlights feature automatically swivels the headlights to illuminate the road around bends, based on your steering wheel movements. LED lights are also used in the High Beam Assistant feature and in the turn signal indicators.
Projects important travel information, such as vehicle speed and check control warnings, onto the windshield directly in your field of vision. For the first time, all Head-Up Display data is shown in full color, making information more precise and easier to process. Additional information including Navigation directional arrows and instructions, Lane Departure Warning messages and warnings from the BMW Night Vision with Pedestrian detection system can also be displayed.
In an emergency, BMW Assist eCall, now standard in all BMWs, automatically sends your location and relevant information to police and EMT services, saving critical time when you need it most. Also standard, with BMW Teleservices, your BMW knows exactly when the next servicing appointment is coming up and informs you about any maintenance requirements. Your BMW Service Center will call you to arrange an appointment. Wherever you are, your BMW Service Center is at your side.
Night Vision is BMW's amazing system that lets you see pedestrians or animals up to 328 yards ahead - in the dark. Using an infrared camera built into the front of the vehicle, you will be able to see potential road hazards displayed on your navigation system monitor, and avoid them well before they are visible to the naked eye. This optional feature will make night driving far more pleasurable and worry-free.
