    sportauto supertest of BMW M6

    sportauto finally tested the M6 (BTW: the next issue of sportauto will cover the F430):

    Tested car was equipped with Pirelli Corsa (i.e. sport tires) which are not available as an option to customers. The car still had the speed limit of 259kph installed (The question is why? If they even mounted tires which cannot be ordered as OEM equipment...)

    Hockenheim (with Corsa tires): 1:14,4
    Hockenheim (with regular tires): 1:15,9
    NBR (with Corsa tires, regular time not available): 8:09

    0-200 kph: 12.8 secs (seems they selected the tested car properly...)

    sportauto claims that the M6 with regular tires but without the 259kph-limit would probably do around 8:09 on the NBR as well. I personally doubt that: I am sure BMW tested the configuration made available to sportauto in advance. The delimited car was probably not substantially quicker than the limited version. That could be the reason why they sent in the car with the limiter and hoped that there might be speculation about how much faster the car could be without the limiter...

    Re: sportauto supertest of BMW M6

    Translation of the most important comments:

    - The intensity of the Servotronic support depends on speed and revs. Result: The steering feels perfect.

    - Nordschleife: The 8,09 min. lap time (fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsas) was done with a speed limited M6. When hitting 259 km/h on Döttinger Höhe the M6 is way below its best. At least a lap time being intimately near the magical 8 min. mark is out of the question if the M-package is installed.

    - At Hockenheim (1.14,4 min.) the M6 benefits strongly from the Corsa tires' grip qualities. The M6 did a 1.15,9 min. lap time with Continental tires (M5 = 1.16,5 min.).

    - An M6 filled up with gas weighs 1.761 kg (M5 1.844 kg).

    - Even if fitted with the Pirellis the M6 does a good job on the wet handling course. That speaks for the well balanced nature of the M6.

    - The reason for the M6 being so slow on the Nordschleife despite of the r-compound-tire advantage has something to do with the road behaviour the M6 displays if fitted with the Corsas. The Corsa tires clearly worsen the understeering tendency, and the rear of the M6 tends to swerve abruptly if you hit the car's limits (Power-Oversteering). That problems don't occure if the M6 is fitted with the Contis. The Pirellis have got more grip but the Contis are more good-natured and more comfortable to drive. They assume that the M6 fitted with the Contis does almost the same lap time on the Nordschleife.

    What surprises me is that the 997 and the amv8 can get round in a simliar time despite being far less accelerative - must be all that weight......

    997S is just outstanding but the AMv8 was tested both with and without R-tires. With R-tires 8.03 min and without 8.13 min.

    Where is the test of AMV8?

    Re: sportauto supertest of BMW M6

    The Corsa tires are offered as an option! Although for daily driving there is no point in getting them, the Contis are much more comfotable. Soon the Vmax opening up to 307klm will also be offered by BMW M Gmbh. Whats amazing is 0-200 in 12,8s, Ferrari F430 in 12,6s the Ferrari is a few 100 kilo's lighter.
