The BMW M6 is an iconic sports car that dominated the 1980s. Its powerful engine, top-notch handling, and stylish body have made it one of the most recognizable BMW models to come out of the 80s. The BMW M6 was based on the design of their previous supercar, the M1. It came with an inline-six engine that was 3.5 liters and able to produce more than 280 hp. The M6 was the second fastest BMW car of the time period, barely losing to its discontinued cousin, the M1. The 1986 BMW M6 is able to reach a top speed of 155 mph, which is slightly less than the original M6 model this is because all BMW M6 models from 1984 onward were fit with an electronic speed restrictor. However, M6 models that were modified for racing have been observed reaching more than 175 mph.
The only major criticism that the ’86 BMW M6 received was with North American models, which had slightly less power due to being built with catalytic converters. Because of this, the European version of the M6 is a popular car among North American car collectors.
