Finished in Silverstone Silver metallic with a Silverstone II Extended Merino leather interior, Powered by M-Division's awesome, high-revving 5-litre, 507bhp at 7,750rpm, V10 Massive standard specification + Comfort Access Just 45,000 miles from new. Full BMW service history. Recent service In absolutely superb condition throughout. The first generation M6 ( E24 M635CSi) was critically acclaimed throughout its lifespan for its elegant, aggressive 'shark-nose' styling, luxury equipment and its performance. 286bhp and a top speed of 158 mph made the European M635CSi the second fastest BMW ever built next to the M1. However, the next BMW to display an M6 badge was a different 'beastie' altogether. The new M6 Concept made its debut at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show and was based on the BMW E63/E64 6-Series, introduced in 2004 but the range-topper packed considerably more hardware into its beefy, Bangle-penned bodywork. Sharing its core drivetrain with its bigger, heavier sibling the E60 M5, the M6 employed the M-Division's awesome, high-revving 5-litre, 507bhp at 7,750rpm, V10 complete with Bi-VANOS valve timing, a 7-speed SMG paddle-shift gearbox, electronic damper control, and a multi-stage DSC stability control system. It's also 45kg lighter than the M5, thanks mainly to the, rather cool, carbon fibre roof which also results in the centre of gravity being lowered by 60 cm, and the 6-Series wheelbase is shorter than the saloons, all factors contributing to the car's dynamics. 0-60 takes around 4.5 secs, although one leading magazine, using the pre-programmed 'Launch Control', reported 4.1 seconds and top speed, when the limiter is removed, is an achievable 205mph. We are delighted to present this stunning 2007, BMW M6, appropriately enough finished in Silverstone Silver metallic with a Silverstone II Extended Merino leather interior, with Alcantara headlining and Carbon Fibre interior trim. The option list on the M6 was quite short as these cars were very well equipped as standard including ABS, automatic headlights, ASC, Dynamic Brake Control, M-Dynamic mode, Puncture warning, M-Drive manager, Launch Control, Voice Control, Head-up Display, M-Sports seats with Lumbar support, Logic-7 Professional Hi-Fi, Professional Navigation, and much more. In addition, this M6 also includes one of the few factory extras you could spec, Comfort Access (entry, locking, and engine start without using the key). One of the M6's party tricks is the little dashboard button that says 'Power'. It's all programmable but normally a push on this innocuous button will change a number of settings, the steering becomes sharper, the suspension characteristics change, as do the gear change settings, the seat belts tighten and, most importantly, another 107bhp are added to the original 400 (in 1965, a Mini-Cooper 1275S was 92bhp!!). The car's acceleration is enormously impressive, even addictive- put your foot flat to the floor, tweak the “up” paddle without lifting when the tacho is reading 7,750, grab 6th at about 160 and when you select 7th at about 180mph the rate of acceleration hardly seems to diminish. This lovely car has covered just 45,000 miles and has a full BMW service history. It was fully serviced at a cost of £1,000 in September 2018 with plugs and front pads and the MoT is valid until September 2019 so should continue to provide miles of effortless fast, comfortable and stylish driving. When new in 2007, this top of the range BMW would have cost in excess of £85,000 but today's guide is a quarter of that. It's worth that just for that little 'Power' button.
