Fun to Drive
Exhilarating performance is always fun, and the M6 has plenty. It’s not like a small, nimble sports car, but that’s not what we expected. It is a very capable GT luxury coupe. The complexity of it will fascinate some and frustrate others, but it’s part of what allows some aggressive, no-compromise settings. BMW hosts an advanced driving class for M buyers at its track in North Carolina, and it’s essential for a car like this despite all of the safety features. If there’s one thing that might cut the fun factor it’s the poor fuel economy: We averaged 11.5 mpg.
