Running costs

Compared to the standard 6-Series, the M6 is pricey when new especially when you consider it's as expensive as top end Porsche 911s and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. A new car will still take a sizeable depreciation in in the first 12 months while insurance group 20 and 19mpg add to the costs, but if you have to ask . . .

Emissions summary

The M6 returns just 19mpg on average, so it's no surprise that it scores so lowly on the eco front. With emissions of 362g/km CO2 it scores similarly to other supercars from Aston Martin, Audi and Porsche but fortunately, these sorts of cars tend to be driven less per year than the average family car.
