BMW M6 GranCoupe – Almost Official


BMW this week have shown the BMW M6 Gran Coupe at a private unveiling at the Nurburgring in Germany.

Even though the pictures don’t really reveal much from the spy shot’s taken last year, whilst undergoing extreme cold weather testing.

It does show us the finished article hidden under the camouflage, one thing was a surprising that the car is sporting a carbon fiber roof along with some more carbon detailing throughout the car although we are not sure of the option list on this private display, but the car also had Ceramic Brakes which hints at this being the M-Drivers-Package M6 Gran Coupe.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe – Geneva 2012

After spying the m6 series Gran Coupe in Sweden earlier this week, BMW are showing up the non M powered variant of the luxury Coupe at the 2012 Geneva Autosalon.

The 6-series Gran Coupe will launch with a choice of three engines.

The entry level version will be the 640i that houses a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with 315 HP and 450 Nm of torque and will accelerate to 60mph in 5.4 seconds.

The Diesel Powered 640d Gran Coupe uses a 3.0-liter engine with 309hp and 630 Nm of torque. Performance matches the diesel variant due to the huge torque propelling it to 60mph in 5.4 seconds.

The Range topping non M powered variant is powered by the same twin turbo engine as in the current M5 and M6 but detuned to around 440hp.

This is actually clever marketing as we have previously spied the m-powered variant in northern sweden and this will be around the 550hp from its 4.4 twin turbo v8.

BMW M 6 Series Gran Coupe – Latest Spy Photos

This is BMWs answer to the Mercedes CLS AMG and Audi flagship S7, the M6 Gran Coupe has been spotted in light camouflage during cold weather testing in Scandinavia. With its deep front spoiler and wider fenders it looks really aggressive and the M trademark quad exhaust pipes finish the back off beautifully.

Powered by the same high revving turbocharged V8 engine as the M5 and the just revealed M6 Coupe and Convertible, the M6 Gran Coupe has atleast 560 wild horses to play with. Rumors are even talking on a 20-40 hp power boost for the M6 Gran Coupe, making it 580-600 hp in total.

All this power will be sent to BMW M´s latest seven-speed Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe Spied in Munich

These spyshots show that BMW has an answer for the Audi A7 and the Mercedes CLS.

This is the new Gran Coupe, the firm’s four-door version of the 6 Series sporting the M Sports Pack.

M Division has come up with a subtle body with a more aggressive front bumper, incorporating larger vents and a deeper chin, as well as a redesigned rear bumper which continues the theme from the revised side skirts.

First revealed at the Beijing last year, the new model has appeared on German Autobahn unchanged from the original ‘production concept’ that previewed it.

Apart from some of BMW’s usual 3M Camouflage tape on the front and rea quarter, this prototype shows that the new model is an elegant addtion to the 6 series cars.

Expect some splattering of M Brand throughout the trimmings in the M Sports Pack

At the front is the traditional kidney grille flanked by aggressive LED headlights. In profile, all the BMW hallmarks are present and correct – there are short overhangs front and rear, a long wheelbase and a coupe-like roofline which is a full 10cm lower than a 7 Series. The C-pillar features the latest interpretation of the Hofmeister kink, which will be outlined in chrome on the finished car.

Inside, expect BMW to offer a spacious rear seat layout with just two seats, allowing occupants to stretch out in more comfort. Just like the 6 Series two-door coupe and convertible, the Gran Coupe will get the same range of engines too, including BMW’s latest direct injection 3.0-litre turbo petrol and diesel engines, as well as a flagship V8 petrol.

The Gran Coupe is set to be unvailed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with sales starting 2012. Prices will kick off at around £45,000.
