M6 Gran Coupe – There's a new M-branded BMW product coming soon to a showroom near you!
The 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe becomes the newest member of the BMW M5, M6 Coupe (M family) this year thus becoming a great 2014 MY addition. Developed in Nürburgring, Germany (Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit), BMW validated the M6's acceleration, braking and handling as the M6 passed the demanding track requirements at Green Hell. Its Canadian debut is coming and dealerships will fill their inventories during the summer of 2013. Final pricing, specifications, options and other figures and options will be announced closer to the specific launch date. The four door vehicle should be a hit with its overall practicality (space, performance) over the 2-door M6 coupe.
The M6 Gran Coupe is positioned as a high performance, four-door Coupe providing for additional passenger space in comparison to the 2-door coupe version. The M6 will be placed in between the M6 Coupe and the M5 models as far as vehicle placement is concerned. The new M6 Gran Coupe will fill yet another small market void within the BMW vehicle line up. In essence the M6 Gran Coupe is a combination of the M6 coupe and M5 sedan but with big divisional power installed under its hood. The smoothly flowing roofline makes the Gran Coupe more attractive than the three-box M5 sedan. Both Ergonomics and Racing Technologies have been integrated to make the M6 an attractive and sexy vehicle option for the consumer.
BMW has done its homework and "burned the midnight oil" in making the M6 vehicle more fuel efficient while at the same time maintaining the fun, exuberance and power via the V8 engine. The vehicle outputs 10% more power than the M V-10 motor while improving its torque by 30%! Wow! The M6 will have a direct-injected 4.4 liter M Twin Power Turbo V-8 engine becoming the strongest engine amongst the M family members. At 560 horsepower and 500 #/ft of torque this vehicle will be agile, mobile and nimble.
The M6 engineers anticipate a top end speed of 155 miles per hour accompany a 0-62 mph time in a mere 4.1 seconds. The brakes have been improved with large rotors in the front and rear along with six-piston calipers. The driver has the ability to shift between M1 or M2 modes by using the steering wheel integrated buttons (M1 = sportier setup and M2 = track duty).
If you are looking for a racing car performance, some additional seating for guests and for some awe-inspiring looks…then the 2014 BMW Gran Coupe could be for you!
