This is the BMW Individual M6 Coupe “Fire Orange”. It derives its name from the car's color, a unique "Fire Orange" that contrasts with the black roof, black mirror caps and high gloss black accents on the grille and window trim.
The rest of the car is standard, meaning that it is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine producing 552 hp (560PS) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque and is mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.
