The CoRoT satellite exoplanetary team announces its sixth transiting planet in this paper. We describe and discuss the satellite observations as well as the complementary ground-based observations ‐ photometric and spectroscopic ‐ carried out to assess the planetary nature of the object and determine its specific physical parameters. The discovery reported here is a ‘hot Jupiter’ planet in an 8.9d orbit, 18 stellar radii, or 0.08 AU, away from its primary star, which is a solar-type star (F9V…
