While we recently got the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe in India, some arguably luckier blokes will have a chance to see the all new BMW M6 Gran Coupe at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show next month. We have always been saying that a BMW M6 Gran Coupe is in the making and the performance variant of the Gran Coupe will further extend the already lengthy BMW 6 series range which presently consists of the 6 Series Coupe, Cabriolet, Gran Coupe and the M6 Coupe and convertible.
What we have here are the first ever official pics of the upcoming M6 Gran Coupe. The M6 Gran Coupe gets some ‘sporty bits’ to inject more aggression in the already well formed body. The front fascia of the M6 Gran Coupe sports aerodynamic splitters and front spoiler.
As is expected of a M6 variant, the M6 Gran Coupe sports a carbon fiber roof. The car rides on a set of tasty 20” mag wheels that further enhance the sportiness quotient.
Powering the M6 Gran Coupe is the 4.4 litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol motor that does duty on the 2 door M6 variants. This means that the new M6 Gran Coupe gets 560bhp of power and 680 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) and the power is transmitted to rear wheels.
The car has a claimed 0-100kmph timing of 4.5 seconds and an electronically limited top whack of 250 kmph.
