BMW has released a new promotional video with the M6 Gran Coupe which can only be described as “awkward”.
Despite being around for about three years now, in its current generation, the BMW M6 is being highlighted once more, this time with the help of a new promotional video, which has been released by BMW Canada. The clip posted below will leave you confused firstly because the description says “BMW 6-Series” but the featured car is an M6 Gran Coupe and secondly because it is making us listen to what seems to be a corporate acceptance speech. This is probably BMW’s way of becoming more Canadian but it simply cannot forget its German heritage. Even so, make your own opinion on the clip posted below.
The current generation of the BMW M6 has been introduced at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The model has been based on the F12/F13 and it is offered in three body styles, two-door coupe, two-door convertible and four-door gran coupe. All versions are taking their power from the same 4.4 liter turbocharged V8 engine, which is capable of putting down a total output of 560 HP (412 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. The official performance figures are indicating a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 5.2 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), which can be raised to 300 km/h with the M Driver’s Package.
