You read it first on MotorBeam. After showcasing the classy monster at the 2014 Auto Expo, BMW is all set to launch the 2014 M6 Gran Coupe on 3rd April this year, at an event in Delhi. Based on the regular 6-Series Gran Coupe, the M6 GC brings together outrageous power, performance and luxury at the door step of the wealthy few who choose to drive and find the regular luxury saloons too boring for their liking.
The BMW M6 Gran Coupe boasts of coupe styling coupled with four-doors. Differentiating it from the regular 6-Series is the sporty bumper design with massive air intakes, pronounced wheel arches as well as the M treatment all over the car. Also enhancing the aesthetic appeal is the carbon-fibre roof, quad-tipped exhausts and the side grilles that tell you about the beast inside the hood of the luxurious car. The interiors on the M6 Gran Coupe too boast of state of the art luxury and gadgetry with extensive use of leather and carbon-fibre all over the cabin.
Powering the BMW M6 Gran Coupe is a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine capable of producing 552 BHP of power and 680 Nm of torque that also powers the M5 and is mated to a 7-speed DCT transmission which sends the power to the rear wheels. 0-100 km/hr comes up in 4.2 seconds, while the top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/hr. You can choose to tune your suspension for a soft or a firm ride with the help of the M Dynamic Damper Control. The M6 GC also offers different driving modes namely Eco Pro, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ to choose from.
Most users will like the fact that the M6 Gran Coupe is a lovely car to be chauffeured around in the city, while also being capable of giving you an adrenaline rush on the weekends. The car will be brought in via the CBU route and would be priced around Rs. 1.5 crores in India. The M6 Gran Coupe will be competing against the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG and the Audi RS7 in the country when launched next month.
