BMW M6 560hp 500lbs-ft tq twin turbo S63tu engine

BMW M6 Engine Details
The M6 Coupe and convertible share the same S63tu engine. This is the same turbo V8 engine which powers the F10 M5. Not to be confused with the S63 which is similar to, but not as powerful, and found in the X5 M and X6 M.

To avoid a performance penalty from the additional potential weight BMW has tapped is extensive light weight materials knowledge and used weight saving throughout construction of the 2012/2013 M6.

New beast is awesome but I am surprised to see the coefficient Drag still at .32 when the new E Coupe from Mercedes is .24 Would have been nice to have seen them get it below .30 Otherwise I really like it. Last but not least it would have been even better if it were 200-300 lbs. lighter.
