The new BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible have been launched in the UK, so it’s probably a good time to take a look at what this car is capable of from a right-hand-drive point of view. As with other M cars, the M6 has two personalities; on one hand it’s a big, lavish, comfy coupe, and on the other, a growling sports car – if you keep the M button pushed of course.
It is brilliant at both its purposes. But as Autocar’s Vicky Parrot argues, the new model has gone a bit soft, even when you set every setting on full attack — and you’ve got an awful lot of settings to fiddle with. Does a slight compromise on M goodness matter when you get more convenience in return? That is a question that people willing to spend 95 grand on this car should answer.
