BMW has brought the M6 Gran Coupe and the facelifted Z4 to the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
After it was officially unveiled approximately a month ago, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the German based automaker bringing it to the 2013 Detroit Motor Show. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is powered by the same 4.4 liter V8 engine found under the hood of the M6 Coupe and M6 Cabrio, producing a total output of 560 HP (412 kW) and 502 lb-ft of torque (680 Nm). The 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration is done in 4.2 seconds and top speed stands at 155 mph (250 km/h) or at 189 mph (305 km/h) with the M Driver’s Package.
Besides the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the car manufacturer has also brought the updated 2014 Z4 roadster to the same North American automotive event. The model is coming with three new colors, the Valencia Orange, the Glacier Silver and the Mineral Gray and it has restyled headlights, modifier rear end, fender vents and some other tweaks. A new entry-level, named the Z4 sDrive18i, will be available for the model. This version is using the same 2.0 liter twin-turbo engine from the Z4 sDrive28i, and it has been detuned from 240 HP to 156 HP. The unit is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission allowing the model to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 7.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 137 mph.
