BMW Ceased Production Of M6 Coupe and Cabrio


With the new model shaping up pretty nicely, BMW announced that they have finalized produciton of the current generation M6 coupe and convertible.

They ceased the production of these models and started a bit of housekeeping for the new version which will arrive next year.

The mighty M6 joins the recently done M5 in BMW’s history book, and like the M5 it will go down there as one of the greatest. This model started life in 2005 and since then 14,152 units of it were produced and sold – 9,087 coupe and 5,065 Convertible. The car’s V10 engine will also die with it as it’s being replaced with a more powerful more efficient twin-turbo V8.

With the departure of these two fascinating and exceptional athletes and the already discontinued fourth-generation BMW M5, production will now also cease for the unique V10 high-rev engine. For years the 373 kW/507 hp powerplant has set the benchmark for delivering sheer power in cars that are both highly dynamic in character and symbolic of the outstanding expertise of BMW M GmbH in developing high-performance engines.

For two years in succession, 2005 and 2006, the ten-cylinder unit took overall victory in the prestigious Engine of the Year Award, and in the two years that followed achieved first place on each occasion in the category for engines with displacement above 4 litres.
