V12 M6??????



I just read this at:

http://www.bmwinsight.net/news.htm

Quote:
6-Series Debut

The all-new 6-series is set to debut in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Production is set to start late 2003 into 2004. Expect the iDrive system with easier navigation and control set. Engines include 3.6, 4.4-Valvetronic, and a 6.0 V12 M6 due out later in 2004.

V12??? So it wont share the M5's engine? Instead it will be a pure all out benz destroyer?

You know what though. I can see this hapenning. The reason is, because there has to be some reason for a person to buy an M6. There needs to be some justification for the (probably outrageous) price its going to cost for one. Also they have to up the power because it has to be faster than the M5 since it is an M6!

7-SERIES TO UNDERGO MAKEOVER -

IT APPEARS WITH THAT WITH ALL THE COMMOTION AND CLATTER OF THE REDESIGNED 7-SERIES, BANGLE AND HIS DESIGN TEAM HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A BETTER MAKEOVER FOR THE 7. BECAUSE OF THE HIGHLY-CRITICIZED COMMENTS SURROUNDING THE REAR AND FRONT END, YOU CAN EXPECT THE MADE-OVER 7 TO HAVE A MUCH IMPROVED TRUNK-LID AND REAR THAT IS MORE CONSERVATIVE. YOU CAN ALSO EXPECT THE ELIMINATION OF THE AMBER EYEBROWS THAT SURROUND THE HEADLIGHTS BUT NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED. THERE IS NO CONFIRMED WORD OF WHEN EXACTLY THE NEW 7 WILL MAKE THE DEBUT BUT PROBABLY SOME TIME LATE THIS YEAR, THE LATEST AT THE 2004 NAIAS. BOY, THAT WAS A FAST MAKEOVER BEING THAT THE NEW E65 7 WAS INTRODUCED LAST YEAR!
Does this sound bad?
they gonna have another make over?

I hope Bangle doesn't mess the M6 up too! That guy needs to be shot

If I was in the market for a high end luxury car? i'm sorry but i wouldn't buy a BMW! Maybe an Audi S8 because it doesn't look like 14 year old sci-fi geek designed it.

We discussed this last night at my BMW CC meeting, and they are calling for a price range of Z8 territory or higher...

actually to see what future M6 gonna be you have to check the past.
Just compare E28 M5 to E24 M6.
from that you can see find out the price of the next m6
