First glimpse of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe

JonathanDecember 13, 2012

After plenty of speculation and anticipation, BMW has finally lifted the lid on its new M6 Gran Coupe vehicle.

Deemed a high-performance version of the German car giant’s well-loved 6 Series Gran Coupe, drivers will be looking to tame a motoring beast when they get behind the wheel of this car.

This is because the vehicle boasts a bi-turbo 4.4-litre V8 under its bonnet which is capable of delivering up to 552bhp and a maximum of 550 lb/ft of torque.

What this translates to from a driving perspective is a car that is capable of reaching 62mph from a standstill in a mere 4.2 seconds and go on to achieve a scorching top speed of 155mph.

Despite all of this impressive speed and power, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe’s CO2 emissions is limited to a respectable 232g/km and boasts fuel economy of 28.5mpg on a combined cycle.

Also helping the car to perform on the road is the inclusion of 20-inch forged alloy wheels and striking gold brake callipers, while 295/30 ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sports tyres are handy additions.

Other eye-catching features of the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe include its aggressive-looking front spoiler, flared wheelarches, the inclusion of four exhaust pipes and a dazzling weight-saving carbon-fibre roof.

The high-performing vehicle is set to make its public debut at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, before launching across the UK in summer 2013.

In order to experience BMW’s skill for creating aggressive cars until then, drivers should be sure to seek a great contract hire offer currently available with the BMW 7 Series 730d BluePerformance SE four-door Diesel Saloon.

Monthly instalments of £688.02 deliver motorists with a car that can go from 0-62mph in a mere 6.1 seconds and yet is able to also boast a very economical 50.4mpg on a combined cycle.
