Watch The 2012 BMW M6 In Action: Video

Follow Joel

It's been merely four days since BMW revealed the new 2012 M6 Convertible and 2013 M6 Coupe, but M5Board has already posted videos showing off the newest models from BMW's M division.

The two videos show off both the Coupe and Convertible M6s driving around a track with even a little tail-out action from the Coupe. Unfortunately the music is in the way, so we don't get to hear the sweet sound of that twin-turbo V-8 engine.

A quick reminder of the vitals: a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 rated at 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque powers the M6 models to a 7,200-rpm redline. You'll receive maximum horsepower between 5,750-7,000 rpm and maximum torque between 1,500-5,750 rpm. The power band is three times wider than the previous generation's V-10 engine thanks to the forced induction.

While the only transmission available at launch is the seven-speed M-DCT dual-clutch unit, we hear BMW is considering offering a manual transmission due to demand in the last generation M5 and M6. With power going to the rear-wheels, you'll see 0 to 62 in a claimed 4.2 seconds in the Coupe and 4.3 seconds in the Convertible.
