Put your down and the M6 accelerates with the you’d expect, and there’s any let-up – even when you autobahn speeds.

You only the smallest of gaps to carry out manoeuvres, then, but the straight-line is only part of the story.

The M6 features bespoke alloy and a trick limited-slip differential, BMW has swapped the regular Gran electro-mechanical steering for a hydraulic in an effort to improve feedback.
