The BMW M6 is a high-performance version of the 6-Series automobile, designed by the motorsport division of the German manufacturer.

In 1983 BMW took the M88/3 engine, a modified version of the M88/1 from the BMW M1 and put it in the E24 chassis of the BMW 6-Series, creating the M635CSi (called “M6” in North America). The “M6” was critically acclaimed throughout its lifespan for its elegant, aggressive “shark-nose” styling, its well-appointed luxury features, and its quick performance. An M6 can be distinguished from other E24 models by a larger air dam, M badges on the grille and back, and a subtle brakes

In the U.S, the E24 “M6” was fitted with the catalyzed S38 motor, producing 256 hp (191 kW) and 243 ft·lbf (329 N·m) of torque. The European version did not need catalysts, and produced 286 hp (213 kW) and 251 ft·lbf (340 N·m) of torque. The “M6” was good for a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 6.4 and 6.8 seconds for the European and American versions, respectively. However, Car and Driver Magazine tested the U.S. “M6” in July of 1987 and achieved a 0-60 mph (100 km/h) time of 6.1 seconds.[citation needed] Also in 1987 Road and Track featured the U.S. “M6” as one of the 10 fastest cars in America.[citation needed]

Production of the “M6” ended in 1989, with 5,855 cars sold, 1,767 of which were North American (U.S. & Canada) models.

The new BMW M6 concept made its debut at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the BMW E63/E64 6-Series, introduced in 2004. It shares the same 5.0 L V10 S85 engine and SMG III gearbox with the E60 M5, and produces 507 hp (373 kW) / 384 ft·lbf (521 Nm).
