BMW M6 Gran Coupe gets the PD6XX widebody kit from Prior Design

Article by Christian A., on May 18, 2014

If you are not convinced that your BMW M6 GranCoupe (F06) is not sexy enough, then you should take a look at the PD6XX widebody kit developed by Prior Design. As you can see from the photos, the new aerodynamic kit consists of a new front bumper with larger air inlets and cup wings, new side sills, enlarged front and rear fenders, a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser painted in high-gloss black, as well as a rear trunk lip.

The vehicle also received a front hood with new air inlets. As an option, the Prior Design body kit can be ordered in carbon. The design of the M6 GranCoupe is completed by the 20-inch golden multi-spoked ADV1 wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.

Thanks to the new H&R springs the tuner adjusted the lowering rate to the new wheel arches. Under the hood, there is the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that was boosted from 560 hp to 659 hp, while the maximum torque was increased by 140 Nm to a total of 820 Nm.

Prior Design didn’t offer any details regarding the performances of the vehicle, but we do know that the standard version accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph) or at 205 km/h (189 mph) when the optional M Driver’s Package is specified.

The engine roars through the new stainless steel sports exhaust system developed by Prior Design. If the customer wants it, Prior Design can install four 90 mm carbon tailpipes. The interior was also overhauled and the M6 GranCoupe features the finest Alcantara and Napa leather, while the fine stitching completes the design.

Pronounced flaring wheel arches draw attention to a track width particular to the M6 Gran Coupe. The distinct M gills, aerodynamically maximised exterior mirrors, standard Individual High-glossed Shadow Line package and select 20” M light-alloy wheels in twin-spoked design emphasise the vehicle's distinct look, along with another M trademark – dual exhaust tailpipes located on the rear apron’s outer rims. Also combined into the rear apron, and tasked with maximising the flow of air along the underbody, is a CFRP diffuser.

This incredibly light, remarkably strong advanced material is applied in the roof construction as well. Here, the outlaying carbon framework creates an attractive feature, as well as a vivid niche in the roof’s centre. This niche is style reference in the car’s interior, the anthracite Alcantara roof liner attaining a centre leather section.

Following the agreeable blend of sporty prowess and sophistication epitomised by the exterior’s design, the distinct M cockpit merges sports car styling with ample levels of room and a luxury feel. The driver and front passenger can anticipate M sports seats with integrated guides for the belts. And the M6 Gran Coupe comes standard with Merino leather upholstery with additional features. The rear section has two or three seats, the backrests can split and fold down 40:60 to expand trunk space from 460 litres to almost 1,265 litres.
