Default Question about the ignition coil

Here's my problem. After 30 minutes of driving, the car won't start. There's no spark. The ignition coil becomes very warm to hot during the starting attempts !
Even after removing the capacitor there is no spark.
I measure 6V at the right connector of the ignition coil and only 1V at the left. The ignition coil is newly installed. The breaker is ok, the ignition perfectly adjusted. There must be 6 V at both terminals?
Even before changing the ignition coil the car went out after about 20 minutes. But it could be started again cold.
What could be the problem?

Greetings from Bavaria
