2017 BMW M6: What You Need to Know

1 of 13

The M Stands for Fast

In BMW nomenclature, the M stands for “Motorsport.” A designation originally reserved for BMW’s racing program in the 1960s and 1970s, the M badge today finds its way onto BMW vehicles throughout the lineup. But it isn’t just a badge. If your BMW has the M, that means it has a hotter engine, a better suspension, and a much larger price tag.  

The 2017 BMW M6 continues this tradition with a twin-turbocharged V8 and a dual-clutch or manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The M6 is very fast, but it is also comfortable. BMW tuned the full-size M6 suspension for quiet comfort rather than corner-hugging prowess like the 3 Series. The result is something that might be called a four-door grand touring car. It won’t scare a Porsche 911 around the track, but there aren’t too many cars this size that could pass it on the highway or beat it to the next stoplight.
