Regardless of what car launches when, the M6 will no doubt pack a potent punch when it finally hits the street. Powered by BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8, the big coupe (and convertible) will have a whopping 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque on tap, all of which is sent to the rear wheels via the M division's seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. That means the M6 Coupe will run to 62 miles per hour in just 4.2 seconds with the convertible only lagging behind by a tenth of a second. And while the 2012 M5 will be offered in the US with a proper six-speed manual transmission, there's no word on a row-your-own gearbox for the M6, though our sources have said that it's under consideration (of course).
