The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe boasts extraordinary presence and breathtaking design with sporty and elongated lines and many M-specific characteristics. The front is dominated by large air inlets, Adaptive LED Headlights and the redesigned double-slat M kidney grille in chrome with M6 badge.
The low roofline flowing smoothly into the rear, the swage line and side windows extending well into the C-pillars accentuate the dynamically stretched silhouette.
The aerodynamically optimised exterior mirrors and exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design underline the car's distinctive appearance, as does another M signature - twin exhaust tailpipes positioned on the outer edges of the rear apron. The diffuser in the rear apron, crafted from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), optimises under-body airflow.
The interior of the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe presents a compelling combination of elegance and uncompromising driver-orientated ergonomics.
The latest M cockpit technology has striking features such as the multifunction M leather steering wheel; the M centre console, which is inclined slightly towards the driver, has controls for different M driving dynamics systems and the instrument cluster display.
Standard M seats with electric adjustment already promise optimum comfort, while M multifunction active seats with climate control are available on request.
Another highlight of the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe is the roof, made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which is a unique feature in this segment. The extremely lightweight design provides superior torsional stiffness and reduces weight by 25 kilogrammes compared to that of a conventional glass sunroof.
The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe provides the kind of spaciousness that is far from the usual coupe fare. A through-loading hatch and 60:40-split folding rear seatback further provide an excellent everyday usability.
The M TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engine in the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe is the most powerful of all the standard BMW engines and is distinguished by its enormous performance, outstanding power delivery, running smoothness and free-revving character.
The 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology combines two TwinScroll turbochargers with Valvetronic, Double-VANOS and High Precision Injection to develop an output of 412 kW/560 hp and an impressive torque of 680 Nm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/hr takes 4.2 seconds and top speed is 250 km/h.
The seven-speed M Double Clutch transmission with Drivelogic ensures fast gearshifts without loss of power. Drivelogic also includes adjustable shift characteristics, a Low Speed Assistance system with a crawl function for increased comfort in stop-and-go traffic, a Launch Control system and an automatic "P" function.
Motor sport-style shift paddles directly on the steering wheel allow the driver to engage all seven gears without having to lift off the accelerator.
The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe with state-of-the-art safety features provides maximum support in any situation with six air bags, Active M Differential, M Dynamic Damper Control, M Dynamic mode, M Compound Brakes, Active Protection with Attention Assist and Active headrests (front).
The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe also features two M Drive buttons on the steering wheel for pre-programmed configurations for either a sporty or a comfortable drive.
