With a prodigious power and plush cabin, the broad-shouldered 2017 BMW M6 is a superb grand touring machine. Users may however find it lacks the nimble feel of smaller performance cars. The BMW M6 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
Some of the highlights that define the BMW M6 2017 include widely adjustable front seats, impeccably trimmed interior with high-tech gadgetry, a responsive DCT automated manual transmission system, and an exceptionally powerful engine.

Those who can fork out extra bucks for the optional Competition package will get a whopping 600 horsepower.
Pairing for the BMW M8 is done via two transmission systems: a traditional stick shift with an actual clutch pedal, and a whip-smart automated manual. And for drivers so inclined, there are an array of suspension upgrades and a limited slip differential system for drifting.
The 2017 BMW M6 interior is elegant, well-appointed, and laden with latest technologies. To wit, it comes with a luxurious cabin that features lots of technologies than you’ll ever need.
