The BMW M6 is a sports car and the successor to the BMW M635CSi and 850CSi. It is powered by a S85 V10, BMW's first V10 engine ever made, which was also used by the E60 M5.
Most noticeable traits of the M6's exterior are the carbon-fibre roof and five spokes wheels. Until the car's production end in 2010, over 14,000 exemplars were sold.
Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit
The M6 has mediocre acceleration and a low top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) in contrast to other Tier 2 cars. It possesses a responsive and stable steering as compensation.
Need for Speed: WorldEdit
The M6 Coupé was added to the car dealer in Need for Speed: World as a Tier 2 vehicle on April 20th, 2012. Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as an 'A' Class car. A 'B' Class in-game cash variant was added on October 16th, 2012. It was retired on January 23rd, 2013 and re-released on March 19th, 2013.
The M6 has short gear ratios, resulting in quick acceleration times. However, once the player reaches the final gear, which has the largest ratio out other gears, its power shows a notable decrease. Other similarly ranging cars might be able to reach top speed sooner than the M6.
It also has a more powerful nitrous boost than the BMW M3 Sport Evolution and turns very precisely in corners without losing any traction. It weighs as much as most BMW cars in the game. Top speed is 189 mph (304 km/h) and 210 mph (338 km/h) with nitrous.
The M6 is a good alternative to the M3 Sport Evolution due to its well rounded performance and being available for in-game cash.
Shift 2: UnleashedEdit
The M6 with standard performance possesses an adequate acceleration and grippy ride. Its rear can break out when the car is moved to quickly. Players can apply a Works upgrade to the M6 to improve performance substantially.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)Edit
The M6 Convertible is featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as a Super class Racer vehicle. It can be played by racers only and is unlocked upon the player earning 593,000 bounty in the Racer career.
It performs noticeably worse in races than other cars within its range. The M6 Convertible suffers from a heavy weight that can cause severe understeer through corners, although this trait is useful for sustaining damage in Hot Pursuit.
Need for Speed: WorldEdit
Performance-wise, the M6 Convertible is nearly identical to the Coupe with the difference of a lower top speed of 178 mph (286 km/h). It can reach 193 mph (311 km/h) with nitrous.
An Art Director version was released on August 17th, 2012, which is known as "Monochrome." It is currently unavailable for purchase.
The Monochrome variant is fitted with the same performance parts as seen on the standard version. The two tone paint job of the Monochrome consists of BMW vinyls and is inspired by the BMW Concept 1 Series tii. Neon, a "RNFHR3R" licence plate, BBS wheels and a body kit are included as standard aftermarket parts.
- In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, the M6 Convertible can be selected in Alpine White, Black Sapphire Metallic, Indianapolis Red Metallic, Interlagos Blue, Monaco Blue Metallic Sepang Bronze Metallic, Silverstone or Stratus Gray Metallic.
- In Shift 2: Unleashed, the BMW M3 Sport Evolution, BMW M3 E36 and BMW Z4 M Coupe can have their engines swapped with the V10 of the M6.
- The BMW M6 Convertible in Need for Speed: World does not use its inner headlights, although the Coupe utilises them, along with the outer headlights.
- The licence plate of the Monochrome Convertible is a wordplay of the German word "Rennfahrer", which means race driver in English.
