Geeeezzzzz, the million dollar questions. I wish I knew!

Let's see, my 2 cents worth of speculation:- ??????

Price: Try 30% more than the M5 base price.

0-100km/h: 4.7 secs as per M5, certainly we can expect no worse.

Release date: mid 2005?

Colours: even harder. But have a look at 645Ci and M5.

I'll revisit this thread and see how poorly I've scored when the truth comes out! In the mean time, we'll cry waiting.

Here are my pedictions.

Price: 20 % more than the M5 (545i 58.000 € - M5 86.200 € ; 645Ci Coupe 72.000 € - M6 ~100.000 €); unless he gets more than 507 bhp.

0-100 km/h: 4,5 s (545i 5,8 s - M5 4,7 s ; 645Ci Coupe 5,6 s - M6 ~4,5 s).

Release date: No idea; rumors go from Mai 2005 (mot) till Jan 2006 (AMS).

Colours: I hope BMW will introduce some M6 exclusive new ones.

In my opinion the M6 will have a better drag and therefore a higher top-speed, besides a better handling.

Rumors suggest M6 will handle better than the M5, but of course if it's true, then no surprise.

I think the price differential will differ because of country specific tax laws and local dealer requirements. I guess anything between 20% to 30% is plausible. In my country, the M5 base is actually 40% more than the 545i base price (A$220,000 versus A$157,000). I'm assuming M6 gets 507bhp.

They should introduce some M6 exculsive materials, such as paint and WHEELS, although I really like the M5 wheels.

Price = Depends on M5 price, but figuring $80,000 to $85,000 for the M5, thinking $95,000 to $100,00 starting price for the M6.

0/100k = 4.5 or 4.6

Delivery = Well, depends on the M5, but I am guessing next winter, possibly early fall.

Colors = probably similar to the M5, very limited selection, very likely to be the exact same as the M5.

Probably different wheels. I don't think that there are any E63 wheels that are also on the e60.

EXACT same power level, or at least no more than 5 or 10 hp.
