BMW M6 gets tuned

What's the news?

Tuning company G-Power has turned its hand to the BMW M6 with the aim of making the already fast coupé even quicker. The result is this: the G-Power M6 F13.


On the whole, G-Power has left the M6's body kit alone; simply giving this example a very loud orange paint finish. G-Power 'Silverstone RS' 21-inch alloy wheels have been added though; shod in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. Round the back, the new titanium exhaust system is visible thanks to the car's quad tailpipes.


The G-Power M6 comes with the same high quality interior found in the standard model; meaning that, while performance has been increased, comfort and luxury have not been compromised.


Maximums of 640hp and 777Nm of torque. These are the figures that the modified 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 engine now produces - up from 560hp and 680Nm of torque. G-Power says that this hike in output is due to the company applying its supercharger knowledge to the turbocharged unit. This newfound power means the M6 now gets from 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds and top speed is a derestricted 196mph.

Chassis modifications include a new coil-over suspension system and large ceramic brakes.

Anything else?

Upgrading the M6 certainly doesn't come cheap; each new part is individually priced as opposed to the whole lot coming as a package. Prices start from around £1,900 for the suspension upgrade, to a massive £12,600 for the ceramic brakes. The power upgrade and exhaust system are individually priced at £4,500 and £5,150 respectively and the new wheels will set you back £7,200*.

*Prices converted from Euros, but may alter due to local taxes.
