Is This A Great Idea For An M Model?
The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe
is already an issue of large debate. The essential business case for the car is that it's more distinctive than a straight 5 or 6 Series
, and has much of the sense of space and luxury of a 7 Series
. It has the wheelbase of a 5 Series
, the relative width of a 6 Series, and an exterior length close to the standard wheelbase 7 Series. And, as we reported in our drive of the 640i Gran Coupe
in May 2012, the 6 Series Gran Coupe costs pretty much the same as the 7 Series, engine trim for engine trim. The sedan (coupe?) is therefore a proposal clearly meant for an extremely particular clientele. There's no news yet on how well exactly the 6 Series Gran Coupe is selling in its chief markets, but we are curious. The Germans frequently tend not to break out their sales figures that way, mixing sales of the Gran Coupe in with the two-door 6 Series.
And, so, we have now arrived at the inevitable point where the M version must be introduced. Say howdy to the $113,000 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe (actually $115,195 for starters with all of the taxes added). That's $4,650 more than the also highly priced M6 coupe. Let the vehement debates begin. The upcoming 2014 Audi RS7
should be priced right at this level as well, and the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG
(perhaps with an S iteration in the next allotment we get Stateside) should go for roughly the same.Continue reading 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe
