The BMW M6 Gran Coupe has been officially unveiled by the German based automaker after the model has leaked several times.
According to the car manufacturer, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe is coming with an aggressive body kit made out of the new front bumper, the revised side skirts, the rear diffuser, the CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) roof and some other minor tweaks. The model is also getting the four-tailpipe sports exhaust system and the large 20-inch alloy wheels to complete the look. The cabin of the M6 Gran Coupe has received an M steering wheel, an Alcantara roof liner, Merino leather seats, Bang & Olufsen audio system, GPS navigation and more.
The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is powered by the same engine found under the hood of the M6 Coupe and M6 Cabrio, 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).
BMW says that the M6 Gran Coupe is burning an average of 9.9 liters of fuel every 100 km (28.5 mpg UK / 23.7 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 232 g/km. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe has been priced from 128,800 euros, VAT included, on its local auto market, where it will go on sale in May. The model will also be launched in the United States next summer.
