BMW in­tro­duces new M6 vari­ant

Bray People - - MOTORING EXTRA -

A third body vari­ant of the BMW M6 high-per­for­mance sports car is set to be pre­sented for the first time as the BMW M6 Gran Coupe joins the ex­ist­ing Coupe and Con­vert­ible models in the line-up.

The new mem­ber of the M6 fam­ily brings to­gether cus­tom­ary M per­for­mance char­ac­ter­is­tics with ex­tra help­ings of lux­ury and aes­thetic ap­peal. The high­revving V8 en­gine with M TwinPower Turbo tech­nol­ogy and 412 kW/560 hp pro­pels the BMW M6 Gran Coupe from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 sec­onds. And the el­e­gantly sporty lines of the four-door Coupe are com­ple­mented by be­spoke features, such as the car­bon fi­br­ere­in­forced plas­tic (CFRP) roof. The greater in­te­rior space of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe al­lows two rear pas­sen­gers to en­joy gen­er­ous lev­els of on-board com­fort, and there is also a third rear seat for use on shorter jour­neys.

Promi­nently flared wheel arches draw the eye to a track width spe­cific to the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. The char­ac­ter­is­tic M gills, aero­dy­nam­i­cally op­ti­mised ex­te­rior mir­rors, stan­dard BMW In­di­vid­ual High-gloss Shadow Line package and ex­clu­sive 20inch M light-al­loy wheels in dou­ble-spoke de­sign un­der­line the car’s dis­tinc­tive ap­pear­ance, as does an­other M sig­na­ture – twin ex­haust tailpipes po­si­tioned on the outer edges of the rear apron. Also in­te­grated into the rear apron, and charged with the task of op­ti­mis­ing air­flow along the car’s un­der­body, is a dif­fuser made from CFRP.

Avail­able from May 24, prices start at €181,180 (OTR)
