BMW M6 Gran Coupe Revealed

The BMW M6 Gran Coupe has joined the recently launched Coupé and Convertible M6 in Munich’s performance line-up. Sporting the same high-revving 412kW V8 twin-turbocharged engine as its two door siblings, the M6 Gran Coupe accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds.

The engine is mated to a 7-speed M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic and Active M Differential that drives the rear wheels. It also offers Launch Control for maximum acceleration. Fuel consumption is rated at 9.9L/100km and CO2 emissions are 232 g/km, thanks to, amongst others, Auto Start-Stop.

Like other M models, the M6 Gran Coupe features an aggressive M body kit that includes a new front bumper, bespoke side skirts and a carbon fibre reinforce plastic (CFRP) roof and rear diffuser, the latter also charged optimising airflow along the car’s underbody. Completing the exterior styling is a set of 20-inch M-light alloy wheels.

Inside, the usual array of M-goodies are aplenty, including Merino leather seats, an M steering wheel, illuminated sill plates, 4-zone climate control, Professional sat-nav, Soft Close doors and Alcantara roof liner.

The M6 Gran Coupe will go on sale in Germany in May 2013, priced from €128,800. Australian launched is slated for late next year.
