According to a report by AutoCar, BMW’s flagship M6 sports car will be replaced when the next-generation 6-Series hits markets. Instead, the M6 will be replaced by a V8 sports car that draws design cues from the Vision EfficientDynamics concept.
The new sports car will give BMW a direct competitor to the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 and will also give BMW the chance to compete with AMG’s upcoming compact SLS model.
We guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Refresher: Power for the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics comes from a 163-hp 1.5L 3-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and two electric-motors. That allows for a total of 356-hp and a peak torque of 590 lb-ft. 0-62 mph come in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. Fuel-economy is estimated at 63 mpg while in EV mode, the concept can provide 31 miles of zero-emissions driving.
