BMW unveiled its M6 Gran Coupé to selected members of the press at a private event at the Nürburgring…and someone snuck a camera in.
Due to make its public debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January, the M6 Gran Coupé combines the graceful lines of its 6 Series sibling with the sledgehammer power of the M5/6.
That means power is provided by a 4,4-litre twin-tubo V8 developing 412 kW and 680 N.m. Mated with the firm’s 7-speed M-DCT transmission, this unit should be capable of propelling the car from standstill to 100 km/h in 4,5 seconds on the way to an electronically limited 250 km/h.
Despite its performance bearing, the M6 Gran Coupé doesn’t isn’t found wanting in terms of luxury – this examples leather clad interior looks suitably classy and is subtly interspersed with M detailing such as a sports steering wheel with the signature red and blue stitching. Outside, the car on show also sported a formidable looking set of M track-focused ceramic brakes.
We can expect the M6 Gran Coupé to join the local BMW line-up in May 2013.
