Leaked: 2013 Bmw M6 Gran Coupe

Article by Christian A., on November 9, 2012

During a private event in Germany, Bmw unveiled the all-new M6 Gran Coupe based on the 6-Series Gran Coupe, its brand new vehicle that will take on the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG. Despite the fact that it was a private event, several pictures managed to “get out” and here they are. As you can see, the car is actually an M6 Coupe with two extra doors.

The front end features the same aggressive front bumper, a stylish hood as well as the headlights featuring LED technology.

Its roof is identical to the one found on the M6 Coupe, just like the aerodynamic side skirts. The rear end features the impressive rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.

The design of the car is completed by the new 20-inch wheels. Under the hood we find the same twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine delivering 560 hp and 680 Nm of torque.

Bolted to the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, the M6 Gran Coupe will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and will have a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The prominently flared wheel arches of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe emphasize its track width. On the other hand, its characteristic M gills, aerodynamically optimized exterior mirrors, standard BMW Individual High-gloss Shadow Line package and exclusive bespoke 20-inch M light-alloy wheels on top of its signature M twin exhaust tailpipes on the outer edges of the rear apron gives the car its unique appearance.

A diffuser made from CFRP is integrated into the rear apron for aerodynamic purposes, optimizing airflow along the underbody. The same material is used in the construction of the M6 Gran Coupe’s roof because it is extremely lightweight and is at the same time, an impressively strong high-tech material.

The roof comes with eye-catching features such as its visible carbon structure and a dynamic recess found in the center of the roof; the latter, stylistically referenced in the interior by its anthracite-colored Alcantara roof liner that dominates the central section in leather.

Its distinctive M cockpit is an infusion of sports car style and generous levels of space and luxurious ambiance, which also emulates the exterior design characterized by the harmonious blend of athletic prowess and elegance. It also comes with M sports seats with integral belt guides both for the driver and front passenger. Merino leather upholstery with extended features is also a standard feature for the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. There are two or three seats in its rear compartment; the backseats can be split and folded down in a ratio of 40:60 so that boot capacity is increased by 460 to as much as 1,265 liters.

BMW M6 Gran Coupe’s chassis technology is designed to harness all of its sporting potential to achieve ultimate performance. Its double-wishbone front axle and integral rear axle both have specific kinematics and are all made from forged aluminum. Using large panels, its chassis mountings ensure an even distribution of dynamic forces through the body.
