In slower corners, the front tires held on long enough to give way to full-throttle, tail-out antics, provided the stability control was completely disabled. So despite the Golden Girls' inexplicable survival in syndication, the world moved on and has arguably improved. It's still heavy at an estimated 3900 pounds, but the clever M boys worked to move the center of gravity of the M6 inward and down to ease the stress of directional changes. Stunning five-spoke forged aluminum 19-inchers are used instead of the 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels that are on the M5. Crack off another shift, and almost instantly the needle is against the red again.
The one he tools around in every few Sundays. Set the various parameters to their max settings, and the M6 goes ape. General Issues In the 1980s, the frequent problems of the M6 were related to its cooling engine, service brakes, and suspension assembly. The performance is nearly the same as that of the less practical M6, and it's just more outrageous to challenge 911s in a sedan than a coupe. The model had changed little since being introduced in 2006, resulting in a residual value drop of 19%. Track impression 1: Even the spacious, 3.
Track impression 4: Stability control bad. The M6 edges ahead, then, not with extra muscle but with reduced mass. The M6's standard exterior trim includes 19-inch, extra light alloy wheels and distinctive aerodynamic wing mirrors. So, if you want to buy a clunker that willets likely need major repairs within weeks, if not within days of purchase, then this is your place. Which, if you consider its likely window sticker, probably confirms that this sexy beast is a go. To play hard there, you need an empty mountain road, an autobahn, or, best of all, a racetrack.
It is offered in 2-door coupes and convertibles and in 4-door convertibles, which has an exclusive kidney grille with an M6 badge as a tribute to the first M6. Struts suspend the front wheels, and a multilink arrangement in back does its best to keep the rears out of arrears. The car's extreme performance capability comes at the expense of its fuel economy, which is just 11 city, 17 highway, and 13 combined miles per gallon. A few additional braces will be added for M duty--along with the top, they'll raise the M6's weight by as much as 200 pounds, sapping a tad of performance in the bargain. The interior was well maintained and is extra clean. Just tap the shift paddle, squeeze the gas, and you're gone, the M6 not even breaking into full stride. However, there were a few issues with the car a few days after purchasing it.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration noted that overheating may still take place even when the vehicles are not in use. This front-engined, rear-wheel drive car is famous for its extremely powerful V10 engine, lightning-fast gear changes, and super lightweight but strong materials, all combining to offer a performance equal to that of racecars. On the longest straight, we're only into fifth gear for a moment--and there are two left! Although it's fine for preventing mayhem of the too-much-throttle-on-a-wet-entrance-ramp variety, the M6's Dynamic Stability Control system blunts racetrack performance severely. Which, after all, is a luxury automobile packing a Formula 1-inspired, 500-horsepower V-10 engine that revs like a dentist's drill; a seven-speed, paddle-shift, sequential manual gearbox that Mark Webber might think got stolen from his Williams; and an aluminum suspension so sophisticated you could drive over a newspaper and practically read it. Also, there was an error in the software which caused incompatibility with the system's communication. It'll be nearly a year before Americans can get their Nomex gloves on this F1 car in a three-piece suit.
The 5-L, naturally-aspirated V10 engine offers 507 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and it is capable of 7,740 revs per minute. The honesty and integrity from them is deserving a 5 star rating. It was known for its aggressive shark-like appearance, luxurious equipment, and fantastic performance. Better yet, be like Webber and use the shift paddles mounted behind the steering wheel. Behind the lighter wheels are the same brakes found on the M5.
The chewing-gum-in-the-hair Pirelli ringers certainly made the M6 less prone to power oversteer than the M5, which is shod with more conventional, longer-lasting Continental ContiSportContact 2s, which will be the standard tire on the M6. Performance-wise, the M6 is all the M5 is and more. On the approximately three-mile circuit, the M6 displayed easy-to-explore limits that erred on the side of understeer. Not the most comfortable car for the wrecked road standard of day to day Houston commuting. Maybe that's why there has been a constant string of M5s since the wine-cooler era and this is only the second M6, ever. The paint is in great shape and condition.
Keeping the M6 grounded is a chassis setup that is nearly identical to the M5's except for the tuning of the springs and dampers. Fat is also trimmed from the wheels. Options for paint finishes include the signature Indianapolis Red as well as numerous other classy shades. This front-engined, rear-wheel drive car is famous for its extremely powerful V10 engine, lightning-fast gear changes, and super lightweight but strong materials, all combining to offer a performance equal to that of racecars. The ride is both sporty and comfortable with the flip of the m switch and it handles almost like a dream. And less, too, in a few key areas where less is in fact more. It is controlled with either paddles on the steering wheel or a shift lever on the central console, rather than a clutch, just like in Formula One racecars.
. Need to pass a lumbering truck? Oh and did I mention the 500hp? It was known for its aggressive shark-like appearance, luxurious equipment, and fantastic performance. It was available in two body styles, the coupe and the cabriolet, more commonly known as the convertible. But with the top down. But as soon as you mat the accelerator and the gearbox drops down three gears, the engine's wail will quickly remind you that this is no ordinary 6-series. In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, the M6 Convertible belongs to the super racer class and its colors are customizable.
The V10 engine sound is intoxicating. The 5-L, naturally-aspirated V10 engine offers 507 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and it is capable of 7,740 revs per minute. As speed builds to highway cruise, the transmission computer quickly upshifts all the way to seventh gear; you can sense the individual cog changes, but it all still feels fairly conventional. The M6 seats a total of four. This resistance may cause overheating and electrical system problems. And for one good reason: torque. And that's precisely where we romped with an M6--at the Ascari race circuit ascari.
