A THIRD body variant of the BMW M6 sports car has been presented. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe joins the existing Coupe and Convertible models in the line-up. Its retail price is €128,800 and the market launch will be in May 2013.
The new member of the M6 family brings together customary performance characteristics with extra helpings of luxury and aesthetic appeal. The high-revving V8 engine with Twin Power Turbo technology and 412 kW/560 hp propels the BMW M6 Gran Coupe from 0 to 100 Kph in 4.2 seconds.
Average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle stands at 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres (28.5 mpg imp) and CO2 emissions are 232 grams per kilometre. Taking care of power transfer is a seven-speed Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic.
The elegantly sporty lines of the four-door Coupe are complemented by features such as the carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof. The greater interior space allows two rear passengers to enjoy on-board comfort, and there is also a third rear seat for use on shorter journeys.
The front of the car is dominated by its large air intakes, standard Adaptive LED Headlights and a kidney grille designed especially for this model. Prominently flared wheel arches draw the eye to a track width specific to the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
The standard equipment fitted on BMW’s latest launch includes 20-inch light-alloy wheels, leather trim, heated driver and front passenger seats, automatically dimming rear-view and exterior mirrors, an alarm system and the BMW Professional radio with hi-fi loudspeakers.
