Australia: BMW M6 Gran Coupe starts at AUD299,500 image

Order books for the BMW M6 Gran Coupe have been recently opened in Australia, where the powerful four-door coupe can be ordered from 299, 500 AUD.

According to the local automotive media, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe stands between the BMW M6 Coupe, with its 292,500 AUD, and the BMW M6 Convertible, with 308,500 AUD, in terms of cost, but the model is also 70,000 AUD more expensive than the regular BMW M5 Sedan, on which is being based. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is expected to become a hit in Australia, despite its expensive price, once it will arrive in showrooms this July.

As a quick reminder, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe is powered by the same engine from the M6 Cabrio and M6 Coupe, the 4.4 liter V8, which is producing a total output of 560 HP (412 kW) and 680 Nm of torque (502 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a seven-speed M double clutch transmission which is allowing the model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, before reaching the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The speed limited can be lifted with the M Driver’s Package and the model will then reach 305 km/h (189 mph).
