The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupé was launched in India recently underlining BMW’s performance and luxury pedigree. Ammar Alvi gets closer to the four-door high-performance sports coupé.

por1.pngA CBU (Completely Built-Up) unit, the M6 Gran Coupé, according to the company, combines M high-performance with the most advance features, namely refinement with captivating aesthetics, an opulent ambience and a comfortably sized cabin with ample space even for rear passengers.

Says Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India, “What makes the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupé particularly extraordinary is its combination of superior elegance with the comfort and functionality of a four-door saloon and its prowess as a top-class high-performance sports car.”

The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupé boasts of strong presence and breathtaking design with sporty and elongated lines and many M-specific characteristics. The front is dominated by large air inlets, adaptive LED headlights and the redesigned double-slat M kidney grille in chrome with M6 badge. The low roofline flowing smoothly into the rear, the swage line and side windows extending well into the C-pillars accentuate the dynamically stretched silhouette. The aerodynamically optimised exterior mirrors and exclusive 20-inch 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.

The interior of the coupé presents the latest M cockpit technology. Features include the multifunction M leather steering wheel; the M centre console, which is inclined slightly towards the driver, has controls for different M driving dynamics systems and the instrument cluster display. Standard M seats with electric adjustment already promise optimum comfort, while M multifunction active seats with climate control are available on request. 

The M TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol engine in the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupé is the most powerful of all the standard BMW engines. The 4.4-litre V8 engine develops an output of 560 hp and an impressive torque of 680 Nm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/hour takes 4.2 seconds and top speed is 250 km/h.

The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupé with state-of-the-art safety features provides maximum support in any situation with six air bags, Active M Differential, M Dynamic Damper Control, M Dynamic mode, M Compound Brakes, Active Protection with Attention Assist and Active headrests (front).

Other features include Driver Information System with touch controller, BMW Navigation Professional (integrated Global Positioning System) with 10.2-inch colour display with 3D maps, full-colour. BMW Head-Up Display with M-specific views, Connectivity through Bluetooth and USB devices, high-end surround sound system from Bang & Olufsen and BMW Apps. Park Distance Control rear and front along with rear view camera come as standard features.

The all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupé is available in a petrol variant at an all-India ex-showroom price of Rs 1.75 crore.
