We recently said we were interested to see what the M version of the new 3-series will offer, and we were uber pleased to see BMW’s recent press release for the all-new 3rd generation M6. Ditching the predecessor’s V10, a new twin turbocharged V8 capable of 560hp and 500 lb-ft of torque takes the reins. While horsepower is up 10% and torque an impressive 30% – fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced nearly 30%. 0-62mph is achieved in a blistering 4.2 seconds all while you enjoy the creature comforts of this luxury touring coupe, which also holds two seats in the back. The 2012 M6 Convertible model will hit US shores in June 2012 followed by the coupe in late summer as a 2013 model.
