BMW 6-Series Bullshark by Vilner looks exceptional
BMW 6-Series Bullshark by Vilner 22.11.2013
Vilner has unveiled today an entirely reworked second-gen BMW 6-Series Coupe codenamed “Bullshark.”
It would be an understatement to categorize the Bullshark as simply an aftermarket kit created by Vilner. The BMW 6-Series was completely redone by the Bulgarian design studio as only the roof and doors were kept stock. Everything else is new and looks drop dead gorgeous with that front fascia which sends out a bit of an i8 vibe.
Vilner is describing the car as their “biggest project” yet and it represents their first vehicle reworked entirely both inside and out. The new mirrors, lower bumpers and all the other aero elements added were handmade from carbon fiber. The same lightweight material was used for the 19-inch Z-Performance wheels, though initially they wanted to opt for a larger 20-inch set.
The cabin features a combination of brown and beige accents with blue belts and stitching. The upholstery is made from cowhide, while the steering wheel, seats and gear shifter have been rebuilt. Ground Zero was in charge of installing the 11-speaker audio system that comes with two amplifiers and a trunk-mounted subwoofer.
There’s a lot going on under the hood as well where the V8 4.4-liter has received an exhaust system from AC Schnitzer and its software was also optimized, resulting in a power hike from 333 HP (245 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) to 370 HP (272 kW) and 522 Nm (385 lb-ft). The 6-Series Coupe is now able to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 5.4 seconds, making it 0.2s quicker than the stock model. In addition, the maximum speed has increased from 155 mph (250 km/h) to 173 mph (278 km/h).
