Today marked the *official* unveiling of the 2012 BMW M5, probably one of the most closely followed products throughout development. Now, it's the M6's turn.

One problem, though. It's not ready.

As it was seen testing around the Nurburgring, the M6 is still sporting a good amount of camouflage, specifically on its roof. Our friends at 6post quickly pointed out that this could be BMW's attempt at hiding a carbon fiber piece as seen in the last generation M6.

Essentially, you can expect the M5's powerplant and similar design traits on the outside and inside of the M6.

The M6 coupe coupe prototype has once again taken to the Nurburgring for some serious performance testing.

Although much of the front fascia remains covered in camouflage tape, it will resemble the recently revealed 6-series Coupe (official info and photos), but with an M styled bumper of course. The front brakes feature huge calipers with cross drilled rotors front and rear. Traditional quad exhausts are seen at the rear, surrounded by a still-camouflaged rear bumper which will also sport M-styling. The camouflage on the roof could possibly also indicate the presence of a carbon fiber roof underneath.

Like the upcoming M5, the M6 will be receiving a ceramic brakes option, seen for the first time on the upcoming M6 in these photos...
