BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
The new BMW M6 Gran Coupe is the third high-performance M version of the 6 Series, A rival to the Mercedes CLS63 AMG and Porsche Panamera Turbo, it uses the same 552bhp twin-turbo V8 as the other M6s, and can hit 62mph in just 4.2 seconds. No matter what you plan to do in your M6 Gran Coupe-you will enjoy each second.
A car in which the sports idea has been brought to a classic form – the M6 Gran Coupe. It is more than metal and engineering. Its dynamic is now within reach. Combining customary M performance characteristics with extra helpings of luxury and aesthetic appeal, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe is immediately recognisable as an elegant and sporty 6 Series, but with enhanced M styling design cues that make it look sportier and more powerful. These elements include wider air intakes, stunningly contoured headlight units, the newly designed M kidney grille, which bears an “M6” badge, and 20 inch M light-alloy wheels available with two different design choices. The roof of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe is made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic, a unique feature in this segment.
The interior is lovely. It’s the same as in other 6 Series models but even more richly trimmed, with lots of leather and contrast stitching. You get in via frameless doors, drop down into sculptural and very low-set seats (in contrast to the M5) and both driver and front seat passenger feel nicely cocooned.
BMW’s proud of the steering wheel, which has a twin-bar spoke that mirrors the wheels and the front grille. It’s as pleasing to hold as it is to look at – yes, an M car with a wheel that isn’t too spongy, over-padded and thick! They’re slowly getting it.
When it comes to BMW ConnectedDrive assistance technology, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe boasts an impressive range of features which, when combined, enhance comfort and safety. Technologies include BMW Park Assistant, High Beam Assistant, Lane Change Warning, and Lane Departure Warning.
The M6 Gran Coupe powered by high-revving 4.4 litre V8 engines and M TwinPower Turbo technology is accompanied by a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic, Active M Differential and model-specific chassis technology, all of which ensure you get the drive of your life.
Put your foot down and the M6 accelerates with the ferocity you’d expect, and there’s barely any let-up – even when you reach ban speeds. Delivering 412kW/560hp, it propels the BMW M6 Gran Coupe from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. You only need the smallest of gaps to carry out overtaking manoeuvres.
There are moments you have already experienced lots of times. But all of a sudden, they feel new again. Because all at once everything feels more intense. Because you feel more and experience more than usual. I am quite sure a ride in the M6 is one of those moments in your life.
