2013 BMW M6 Coupe Road Review by BMW Blog
BMW Blog shares with us their very own review of the new BMW M6 coupe. Overall, they find the car luxurious yet sporty, and says that this definitely feels like a very special car. Read an excerpt of their review below.
Traction control is flawless, I wouldn’t change a thing. When left in full nanny mode, you simply can’t put a tire wrong, no matter how clumsily you attempt to unleash all 500 lb-ft of torque. Those with a hankering for spirited drives will appreciate M dynamic mode (MDM) which allows for a good amount of wheel-spin and yaw before taking the reigns. You cannot drift the car in MDM mode, but you can manage mild slides before system intervention, enough to put a smile on your face. Less experienced drivers will appreciate MDM mode during track days, particularly wet track days, as 500 ft-lbs is a lot to manage.
While relaxing in the cabin you’ll also appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of the interior. When you’re frequently surrounded by a gold standard, it can be hard to recognize the standard as gold. I’ve always appreciated the functionality and form-follows-function design of BMW interiors since the company’s inception. But after driving a V12 Vantage and spending some time sitting in the new Vanquish – I have a new appreciation for BMW’s interior quality. Aston Martin claim that second to Rolls-Royce, no car has as much hand-assembly involved in the production process. I would never have guessed. The Aston’s seats, dash and doors are beautifully crafted, but the center control column is made of plastics that look cheap and feel cheaper – barely a step above a base model GM car. When you press the buttons, they click like a child’s toy instead of offering up a positive feeling of engagement at your finger tips. They’re also a forensic officer’s dream as every finger laid upon the dash leaves a perfect fingerprint behind.
