Abstract (from CDS):

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 0.08AU, away from its primary star, which is a solar-type star (F9V) with an estimated age of 3.0 Gyr. The planet mass is close to 3 times that of Jupiter. The star has a metallicity of 0.2dex lower than the Sun, and a relatively high 7Li abundance. While the light curve indicates a much higher level of activity than, e.g., the Sun, there is no sign of activity spectroscopically in e.g., the [CaII] H&K lines.
