The new BMW M6 Gran Coupe will go on sale on the 25th May 2013 priced from £ 97,490.
The M6 Gran Coupe is powered by a 4,935cc V8 bi-turbo petrol engine that produces 560hp/680 Nm which will propel the car from 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. The official combined fuel is recorded as 28.5 mpg and co2 emissions are 232 g/km.
The M6 Gran Coupe features a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with DRIVELOGIC with launch control function to assist maximum acceleration, Low Speed Assistance and an Auto Start-Stop function to enhance fuel efficiency.
Arranged around the gearshift lever on the centre console are the buttons used to configure the adjustable powertrain and chassis functions. The DSC mode, engine performance characteristics, Variable Damper Control mapping, M Servotronic responses and M DCT DRIVELOGIC shift program can be selected independently of each other. This allows the driver to put together a detailed set-up and store these settings on one of the two M Drive buttons on the multi-function steering wheel.
As an alternative to the standard compound braking system, the BMW M6 Gran Coupé can also be ordered with optional M Carbon ceramic brakes.
Standard equipment includes 20-inch M light-alloy wheels, leather trim, heated driver and front passenger seats, automatically dimming rear-view and exterior mirrors, BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation system and BMW Professional radio. Options include M Multi-function seats, heated rear seats, Comfort Access, a heated steering wheel, the Soft Close Automatic function for the doors, electrically operated sun blinds and a Bang & Olufsen Advanced Audio system.Published 21 January 2013
