The new BMW M6 Gran Coupe – officially revealed this week – will cost from £97,490 when it goes on sale in May 2013.
The M6 Gran Coupe gets the same, very convincing, looks of the regular Gran Coupes, but with added visual butchness thanks to a front spoiler, flared wheelarches, side skirts, rear diffuser and a carbon fibre roof.
That promised aggression is reinforced by the M6 Gran Coupe’s powerplant that comes from the M6 and M5 with a 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 delivering 553bhp and 50lb/ft of torque – available from 1,500 to 5,750rpm – which is enough to get the M6 Gran Coupe to 62mph in 4.2 seconds.
All that power is handled by an already impressive Gran Coupe chassis that gets an Active M Differential in the M6 to channel torque between the rear wheels and an M-specific version of the Variable Damper Control.
It all adds up to a stunning performance saloon/swoopy coupe from BMW, but it comes at a price – £97,490. That’s almost £25k more than the similarly powerful M5, but only £4k more than the regular M6.
If you want to grab a new M6 Gran Coupe, BMW tell us it will go on sale in the UK on 25th May 2013. Until then, you’ll have to make do with the M6 Gran Coupe video (below).
