    Despite the fact automakers have times when they want us to believe that the German Power War is over, reality shows us that this is far from being true. Later this year, we'll get one of the best examples of this, when BMW launches its M6.

    Our team of spy photographers have recently managed to capture the vehicle during a winter testing session and we can now give you a serious of shots of both the coupe and the cabrio versions. The prototypes shown here ride on wheels that come in 20-inch size and we have reasons to believe that BMW will offer even larger optional ones.

    There is no official word on the output yet, but various media sources indicate that BMW will beef up the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 unit for these two cars. Thus, while the poweprlant delivers 560 hp in the M5, under the bonnet of the m6 it could climb up to 570 or even 580 hp.

    I think that "estyled" BMW badge is a lame attempt to hide the fact the cars in question are BMW's.

    2013 BMW M6 Revealed with 560 Beautiful Horsepower

    BMW has finally unveiled its third generation M6 Coupe and Convertible after a two year break. The stylish M6 comes back “more powerful, more athletic, more luxurious and more efficient than ever before.” It’s also significantly better looking.

    First to arrive US dealerships will be the M6 Convertible as a 2012 model year starting in June, while the Coupes will come this summer as a 2013 model year. Pricing and full technical specifications including EPA mileage ratings won’t be disclosed until closer to the official launch of the vehicle.

    What we do know is that the M6 will be powered by the same powerplant that’s seen in the M5 Sedan, a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 with 560-hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a high-torque, seven-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission.

    The new M6 will also be the first cars in the history of BMW M to be offered with optional M Carbon-Ceramic brakes. Those that do opt for the brake upgrade will also get 20-inch M wheels. With it comes massive 16.1-inch rotors for the front while the rear receives 15.6-inch rotors made from carbon-fiber ceramic compound. Not only are the brakes 42.8 lbs lighter than the standard units, the optional system also comes with six-piston calipers in the front and a single-piston floating caliper for the rear. The calipers are finished off in a unique gold shade.

    Standard wheels for the M6 will be 19-inch variants while (as previously mentioned) 20-inch M wheels are available as an option. While the majority of the M6′s styling is predictable given the recent design history of the German automaker, the new M6 does sport a Carbon Fiber Composite roof similar to its predecessor. It will be offered in one non-metallic paint choice and eight metallic shades, including four exclusive M finishes.

    Here’s to hoping its pricing isn’t completely out of this world, like the recently announced 640i Gran Coupe pricing.
