It isn’t really a coupe, it’s a sedan coupe (hence the name) BMW released the 2013 BMW 6-series Gran Coupe in May 2012, and were heading for the Mercedes Benz CLS and the Audi’s A7 models. The four door coup looks stunning, and follows in the foot tracks of the 5-series in technological advancement, but better.
This elegant, expensive 7 series alternative gets a familiar engine, drivetrain and many other things under the flesh, which are similar to those in a 5-series. But what about the M6, no one saw that coming? It looks so stylish and subtle at the same time, yet it has a lot going on for it. BMW launched their 2013 BMW 6-series Gran Coupe commercial just a week ago, and they were showing clips of two modern samurais having a sword fight. Yes, somewhat confusing; but the intention behind this trailer was to express the calm nature of the beast, since the car was not over the limit in styling, nor did it get the infamous V10.
As usual, BMW introduces the usual styling elements of any M model, but the 2013 BMW 6-series Gran Coupe will receive larger air intakes, adaptive LED headlights, and a new special kidney grille design just for the M6 Gran Coupe. The Gran Coupe M6 is of course distinguished from the M6 coupe by the addition of the rear doors, and the longer wheelbase, they also added a redesigned C-pillars to accommodate the stretched fluid physique of this beauty. The 2013 BMW 6-series Gran Coupe’s roof is essentially made out of carbon fiber, so as the new diffuser. The interior has this wonderful stretch of leather that extends from the driver’s side, all the way to the passengers cockpit side.
Most of you are speculating about the engine by now, well under the bonnet, is 4.4 Liter V-8 power-plant supported by M Twin Power turbo technology which delivers an astounding 560 horsepower, and a good 502 torque figure. The 0-100 km/h time is just 4.2 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 250km/h. The engine is fixed up with a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, that is regulated with BMW’s Drive logic Electronic Management system which makes the M6 Gran Coupe opt for the right gear for maximum traction on the road.
