2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe revealed

Filed under: Sedan, Performance, BMW



Considering that we've pretty much known for some time what the 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe will look like, thanks to numerous spy shots, spy video and even some shadowy images direct from BMW, the official reveal of this car was a bit anticlimactic. But it's never hard to get excited about a new M-branded BMW product. Positioned smack dab in the middle of the M6 Coupe and the M5, the new M6 Gran Coupe will fill yet another small niche in the BMW lineup when it goes on sale next summer to take on the Audi S7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS63.

Like the M5 and M6 models, power in the M6 GC comes from a direct-injected 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that lays down an impressive 560 horsepower and offers up peak torque of 500 pound-feet that kicks in at just 1,500 rpm and last up to 5,750 revs. This power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an exclusive electronically controlled Active M Differential for optimal traction. In all, BMW says M6 GC has a top speed of 155 miles per hour to go with a 0-60 mph time of just 4.1 seconds. As expected, the brakes have also been upgraded with massive rotors front and rear (measuring 15.7 and 15.6 inches, respectively) and six-piston calipers. For better customization, the driver can choose from M1 or M2 modes by using the steering wheel-mounted buttons; M1 delivers a sportier setup and M2 is for track duty.

Visually, the car's coupe-like profile has been accented by all of the usual upgrades we'd expect from a BMW M car including a more aggressive body kit, exposed carbon fiber roof panel, painted brake calipers and stylish 20-inch wheels wrapped in ultra-high-performance summer tires. Inside, the M6 Gran Coupe will get similar upgrades as its two-door counterpart with plenty of Alcantara trim, a sportier, three-spoke steering wheel and well-bolstered, leather-wrapped seats.

For all the details you want to know about the M6 Gran Coupe (except for fuel economy and pricing), check out the official press release posted after the jump.Continue reading 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe revealed
