The four-door BMW M6 Gran Coupe is the most powerful and luxurious car yet from the high-performance 'M' brand. It’s the second most expensive BMW in the range, sitting only behind the i8 supercar – Big Motoring World review why this gem is worth every penny.
The Gran Coupe shares the same 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine seen in the M6 Convertible and Coupe models, but it promises to be even faster thanks to neat weight-saving measures. It’s equipped with a revised Competition Pack which takes the power up to a monstrous 592bhp, while torque is up to a cool 700NM. The 0-62mph sprint takes just a mere 4.2 seconds.
On the road
One of the Gran Coupe’s biggest strengths is how it handles on the road. The Active M Differential gives it superb agility and outstanding traction. It shuffles torque across the rear axle to the wheel which has the most grip, helping the car place its 592bhp and massive 7000Nm of torque on to the road.
The M6 Gran Coupe represents the best of the brand’s style and luxury. The combination of its enhanced size and racy detailing give this revised model a real presence. New styling features include revised front and rear bumpers, a twin-spoke grille design, quad exhausts, bigger air intakes and stylish 20-inch alloys. Like the M6 Coupe, the Gran Coupe gets a carbon fibre roof to help reduce weight and lower it’s the centre of gravity. At nearly five metres long, it has a longer wheelbase than the Coupe but its overhangs are short and neat giving it an excitingly sporty finish.
The inside matches the class of its shell. Its wraparound dashboard is covered with soft-touch leather and carbon fibre weave, while the luxurious electric sports seats provide you with the perfect driving position. The steering wheel gives the car a touch of vintage – reportedly inspired by the 80’s Z1 roadster, and the frameless windows add to the racy feel. 2015 also sees the inclusion of an updated iDrive infotainment screen, heads up display and Merino leather across the cabin.
With a longer wheelbase than previous models, the M6 has generous rear legroom, and the low roof doesn’t affect headroom. The 460-litre boot is deep enough to accommodate large suitcases and the rear seatbacks fold down to free up a maximum 1,265 litres of space.
