BMW M6 Gran Coupe leaks out ahead of debutWed, 12 Dec 2012 00:00:00 -0800
The BMW M6 Gran Coupe – the four-door, swoopy-coupe version of the 6 Series – has leaked out ahead of a debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
We already think the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is probably the best car BMW make, so the arrival of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe offers lots of promise.
The 640d Gran Coupe is a joy to drive with sublime handling that belies its size – and stunning performance from the diesel engine in the 640d – and if BMW has managed to endow the M6 Gran Coupe with the same levels of refinement and even more performance and power then the queue for an M6 Gran Coupe is going to be a long one.
BMW are planning to reveal the M6 Gran Coupe at the Detroit Auto Show in January, but ahead of that – and before BMW send us details – the first official photos have arrived online following a snatched photo of the M6 Gran Coupe a month ago.
The Gran Coupe version of the M6 gets the same sort of treatment as the regular, two-door M6 with extra aerodynamic bits bolted on, carbon fibre roof, two sets of twin exhaust pipes, big ‘M’ alloys and a rear diffuser.
Power will come from the same 4.4 litre bi-turbo found in the M6 that will deliver 553bhp and 500lb/ft of torque, enough to send the M6 Gran Coupe to 62mph in around 4.3 seconds – a full second quicker than the hugely appealing 640d.
No doubt BMW will now hustle out the official details and photos on the M6 Grand Coupe. More then.
