BMW - 100 Years of the Ultimate Driving Machine
Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, BMW is pulling out all the stops for year long festivities. Leading the way is the BMW M Division, which is an integral part of the automaker’s continued success. This group is responsible for some of the company’s most iconic (and fastest) cars – the M-1, E30 M3, M4, and M5.

A Race Car Disguised as a Luxury Sedan
BMW’s M Division turns out race cars, fast race cars. Tasked with enhancing certain BMW models and elevating them to track-level performance means the M Division brings a great deal of racing knowledge to the design table. These cars have all the power and speed of a race car packaged in the stylish body of a sedan.
Like the M5 But Oh So Different
The M6 Gran Coupe is another prime example of the M Divison’s powerful prowess. From the platform to the suspension and its 4.4L V8 engine, the M6 has a lot in common with its predecessor, the M5, considered one of the most illustrious of the automotive world. This turbo charged sedan goes from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. Opt for the Competition Package and expect to get around 575 hp.
The M Division techies understand the aerodynamics required for blazing hot speed because they develop the cars in a wind tunnel test lab. The long sculpted hood is a testament to this, channeling air back and away from the car. The carbon fiber roof lowers the center of gravity, allowing it to hug tight curves better. The BMW website proudly states that the M6 is “the race car you can drive everyday”, and they mean it.
She’s a Head Turner
Stylish, sleek, and senusal, this Beemer oozes casual elegance, but don’t let her looks fool you. This car possesses the predatory spirit of a cat, waiting to pounce. Impressive handling and great acceleration make this one of BMW’s elite models - a wild thing that will definitely challenge your driving skills.
Luxury You Won’t Want to Leave
The interior of the M6 is also impressive. Oak trim accents the doors and the dash. A large satellite navigation screen sits front and center for easy viewing. Sink into the subtle body hugging leather seats (that are ventillated by the way) and grip the heated steering wheel. Face it, you may never want to step out of the car!
Driver Assist Keeps You Safe
Equipped with the latest in technology, the M6 comes with active blind spot detection along with side and top view cameras. The Driver Assist Package offers an active driver assist function to alert you of impending hazards ahead. Beautiful and smart!
Built for Thrills
BMW says the M6 is “built for white-knuckle thrills” and we can’t argue there. Speed, handling, and style, this car has it all. No need to settle for mere 4-door luxury car when you can have the sports car you yearn for and the sedan you need. Happy Anniversary, Bavarian Motor Works!
