Like the 6 Series Coupe and Convertible on which it is based, the new 6 Series Gran Coupe will be receiving the BMW M treatment. The all-new M6 Gran Coupe will be powered by the 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 found under the hood of the current M5 and M6. This forced induction mill is good for 560 horsepower and 500 lb/ft of torque. The engine gets mated to the high-torque 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) and power is routed through the advanced Active M Differential. BMW says the setup is good enough to launch the big car to 60 mph in a hair past 4-seconds. Top speed is limited to a very German 155 mph. Inside, the M6 Gran Coupe maintains its 4+1 seating arrangement and luxurious cabin appointments, while adding unique and sporty M treatments. Look for Merino Extended leather upholstery, exclusive carbon fiber trim work and an Anthracite Alcantara headliner. M6 Lettering can be found on the door sills, and an M driver’s foot rest will be found to left of the pedals.
To improve the driving experience, the M6 Gran Coupe comes fitted with M Multifunction sports seats and M instrument cluster. The seats are lightweight units that include heavy bolstering, power actuation and eye-catching stitching. Exterior updates to the sleek four-door include a new front fascia with larger intakes for cooling, exclusive M kidney grille design and optional Adaptive LED Headlights. Flared wheel arches, M gills, aerodynamically optimized wing mirrors and 20-inch M light-alloy wheels mark the additions to the side of the car. Of course, no M car is complete with large dual exhaust, but the M6 Gran coupe takes it one step further by also integrating a carbon fiber composite rear diffuser to the rear apron.
