According to the guys from BMWBlog, the new generation of the BMW M6 will be making its official debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show which is scheduled for March.
Rumors say that the car will be benefiting from a sportier suspension, lightweight alloy wheels, carbon ceramic brakes. Under the hood it is expected to have the same engine as the M5 which as you probably know is a V8 4.4-liter unit that pumps out 552 hp (560 PS / 412 kW) and a peak torque of 502 lb.-ft (680 Nm). The power unit is linked to a seven-speed M DCT transmission.
According to various sources, the BMW M6 (F12) will be able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in 4.2 seconds, which means that it will be 0.2 seconds faster than the outgoing model. The convertible will need about 4.5 seconds to hit 62 mph from start.
