BMW axes M6 performance coupe

BMW axes M6 performance coupe

05:32 AM

BMW has announced it will discontinue the BMW M6 Series and the custom 500-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-10 that powered the high-performance coupe and the last-generation BMW M5.

The M6, which was available in coupe and convertible models, featured carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic in the roof and bumper and accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, according to the automaker. That's the 2007 model in the photo.

Both the M6 and the recently discontinued M5 were built by BMW M, a subsidiary of BMW:

BMW sold 6,775 of the M6 since 2005.The automaker is offering an attractive 0.9% APR financing option on the remaining inventory. Currently on Cars.com , there are 37 convertible and 65 coupe body styles of the 2010 BMW M6 still available.

The M6 starts at $102,350. With the introduction of a new 2011 BMW 5 Series, which both the BMW 6 Series and M5 are based on, we're not surprised to see the discontinuation of the last generation in preparation for the eventual rollout of next-generation models. It will be interesting to see what new top-of-the-line powertrain will replace the 5.0-liter V-10.

I wish they didn't feel the need to use the word 'axe'. The M6 is coming back... Its merely a hiatus while things switch over.

But no, lets make everything sound misleading.

Ya, usually there is a 1 model year hiatus between the start of a new generation and the introduction of the M variation.
