We'll tell you what we see through the camo of the new BMW M6. The story inside.

Not even two months since we brought you renderings of the next BMW M6, a prototype of the car has been spied testing on the Nürburgring.  The test car has a similar roofline to the BMW Gran Coupe Concept design sketches seen last month, even though the actual concept car's rear doors alter the shape.

With all the camouflage, including extra pieces over the front end, it is difficult to see what the car will bring to the table.  It does appear to have a thin lower lip/splitter, a sectional bumper, and hiding underneath black mesh camouflage twin kidney grilles with slats similar to those on the Gran Coupe Concept.  Adding to the performance-oriented M car are the cross-drilled rotors, and the expected quad-exhaust. Bigger wheels were also added.  Like the nose, the rear of the car has been covered up quite thoroughly.

The next BMW M6 is expected to share a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 570 hp (425 kW, 578 PS) with the M5.  The car could be capable of a 4.2-second sprint to 60 mph.
