Earlier this week, we attended the US media launch for the 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe [official thread]. The M6 Gran Coupe features the same 560hp / 500 kb-ft powerplant as the M5 and M6 Coupe/Convertible and covers 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds.

With the central aim of addressing the handling of the BMW M5 and M6, today marks the release of an all new competition package for the entire M5 and M6 lineup.

The 2013 One Lap of America got underway at 8:30 this morning with the traditional Wet Skid Pad event at Tire Rack’s Headquarters in South Bend, Indiana.
