Have a peek at the first completely uncovered 2014 M6 Gran Coupe, captured by a daring photographer in a BMW factory. It may only be a side view, but there’s no doubt this is the M6 Gran Coupe.
Its blue M brakes (a new M signature going forward), sideskirts, and mirrors are all evidence this is the M6 Gran Coupe.
What is also seen for the first time on this car are the production wheels, a completely new BMW wheel design.
The latest outing by the upcoming 2014 M6 Gran Coupe (M6GC) leaves little else to be revealed. Not that there were many surprises to be revealed in the first place, as the M6GC was expected to share bodywork and most everything else with the F13 Coupe and F12 Convertible variants, but this prototype shows the sculpted roof (carbon fiber underneath the camouflage, just like 6 Series Coupe) and a set of carbon ceramic brakes for the first time.
This is also the first M6GC prototype we have seen sporting the M6 coupe and convertible’s double-slat kidney grilles with M6 badge.
The M6 Gran Coupe will arrive as a 2014 model year and see its auto show debut at the 2013 Detroit NAIAS in January 2013 or the 2013 … CONTINUED
The 2014 BMW F80 M3 and M6 Gran Coupe have landed stateside, with the first spotting coming in Los Angeles!
The M6 Gran Coupe opened the Nurburgring testing season in March and we’ve now caught it on video, giving you a good idea how just how well it tackles the track. That such a large car can perform like this on a challenging track is an impressive sight.
As the M6 Gran Coupe will utilize the same S63Tu engine as the F10 M5 (although the M6 Gran Coupe may be introduced with a slightly uprated power figure from the M5′s 560hp), it’s seen testing with and benchmarked against several M5s in the video, including the M5 Ring Taxis.
The M6 Gran Coupe will feature the same front and rear design as the M6 Coupe and Convertible and will have a similar carbon roof to the one on the … CONTINUED
The Nurburgring testing season has just opened and the first BMW prototype model that we’ve spied is the upcoming M6 Gran Coupe, due to become the upcoming flagship M model upon its release next year.
The M6 and 6 Series Gran Coupe represents BMW’s first foray into the luxury “coupe” sedan niche and just as the standard 6 series Gran Coupe will compete with the Mercedes CLS lineup, the top of the line M6 variant will take on the Mercedes CLS63 AMG directly. If these photos of the M6 GC being pushed extremely hard on the Ring are any indication, the CLS63 AMG will soon have a fast and great handling nemesis to contend with.
The remaining camouflaged portions of the M6 GC do not conceal much as … CONTINUED
The upcoming flagship M car – the M6 Gran Coupe, has now begun cold weather testing in Sweden.
It will directly challenge the 2012 Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG by utilizing the best BMW has to offer in terms of quality of materials and powertrain. The M6 Gran Coupe will be powered by the 4.4L twin turbo V8 S63Tu engine, but may very well feature a power bump from the standard M6 coupe and cabrio’s 560hp (maybe in the range of +20hp or so) in order to give it the leading power figure among all M models. Power will be delivered via a standard 7-Speed DCT transmission.
The M6 Gran Coupe’s premiere should come in the second half of this year (in the Fall) we believe.
As for styling, since … CONTINUED
Autowereld has managed to snap up some more pictures of the upcoming Twin Turbo V8 M6 Gran Coupe, this time in a more striking orange color, probably Valencia Orange
Right now, there are two very interesting BMWs that have either been released or are about to be released. Namely, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe (just released) and the F12 BMW M6 which is literally on the verge of official release.
And so, speculation has rightly so centered around the possibility of the ultimate BMW M sedan, a combination of the 6 Series GC and the M6, a car to challenge and crush the 2012 Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG. Well, BMW has answered the call and it looks like the M6 Gran Coupe is a real car and judging my the very scant amount of camouflage on the car, is just around the corner as well. One wonders if the M6 and M6 Gran Coupe may … CONTINUED
