The photos show the new M6 Convertible still sporting the standard front bumper, nonetheless the bigger wheels, brakes and the signature M-style quad exhaust pipes give it all away.

BMW has switched from the V10 engine found in previous generation M5/M6 to a twin-turbo V8 setup based on the 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 currently found in the BMW X5 M and X6 M.

The engine in the X series Ms makes 408 kW of power and 680 Nm of torque, sources say the M5/M6 is expected to make a little more than that, which means the M5/M6 may have over 700 Nm of torque!

Additionally, given that it wil surely weigh less than the X series SUVs, it's going to be hard to miss the V10.

Bring on the M5/M6 please.
