Risden Engineering is a bit of an unknown, if we're being completely honest – we have yet to report on the company to date, and its corporate website is really an information desert save for the name and a few email addresses. Even the press release that we requested from Risden's contact person is short and vague. That's all pretty much okay with us as long as the shadowy tuners, you know, make good on this sweet-looking BMW M6 racecar thing.

Dubbed the Risden 6R, we're told that the M6 modification will result in a vehicle that is more adept at track work, while still being street-legal. In terms of specifics, we read that a full aero kit will be involved, with one fixed and one retractable rear wing (hard to miss). There are obviously new wheels, and the company has also added a fully adjustable suspension, a four-point roll bar and a new braking system – all while reducing curb weight overall.

Apparently more details are to follow after the 6R's official release in the first quarter of 2013. We wait with bated breath.

Risden Engineering is previewing the release of it's car, based on the BMW F13, meant to give drivers the satisfaction of a track car that performs well on the street and the track.

Among them will be a complete aerosystem suited with a fixed wing and a retractable wing, and also built in cooling features to aid in the better delivery of traction, stability, and brake and engine cooling.

A weight reduction, fully adjustable suspension, 4 point roll bar, and a new brake system have also been put in place to improve acceleration performance, handling, and stopping power.

      Hmmm...interesting platform to use for a streetable track car. But considering this company seems to have Risden out of nowhere...I'd like to see what becomes of this idea of theirs.

      Now THAT is an M6 I can get behind. It looks more proportional somehow.

        I like the more aggressive GT class styling, minus the rear wing though. Wish the M6 came out this way, about 400-600 pounds lighter than the current generation with a raw edge.

      Poorly executed photoshop by unknown company that will probably never be able to afford to buy an M6 let alone heavily modify one. News worthy.

          Going to their website, it clearly states "LAUNCH FIRST QTR. 2013" so I'm doubting they've had any previous experience with BMW's, unless they're a subsidiary of a different tuning company.

          are you sure, even googling them ONLY brings up things about this car and nothing older than the press release about this car. ive been in the BMW community for over ten years and have never heard of this company. even searching BMW Risden in google only brings up THIS CAR.

      Looks like a stretched version of the SN-95 Mustang.

      Very nice. The next gen GTR should take note of that lower valance.

      If anyone buys this car to drive on the street over a regular 6M, their CRAZY! The regular 6 is a beautiful car, left alone. Why "Boy Racer" it up just to drive around??? Im responding to the part where they said they made the car more adept at Track work while still being street legal. Why not just buy a Porsche?

        Well you're a little conformist, aren't you? It's 'ok' to drive a tarted up Porsche on the street, but not a bewinged bimmer? Methinks chairman Mao would love your fragile little boxed-in mind.

          I would say the " Little Boxed in Mind" would belong to the person who can only use an Insult to make a point! YOUR NOT FUNNY! A Porsche is from its Basic to the GT cars are "Sports Cars"! The 6 is a "GT Car"! (Yes theres a difference). My point is, if your not BMW , why spend all of that money making the Car into a Ricer to drive on the street when you could spend less on a Track Ready Porsche? And thats just one persons Opinion!
