This BMW, spotted testing at the usual sportscar stomping ground (the Nurburgring), is not like any other Bimmer out there.
It’s a car that can’t rally be defined in one word. It’s a sedan, but also a coupe. It’s comfortable by also super-fast. Above all, it’s the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe, a flagship of the M range.
BMW has confirmed that the M version of the 6-Series Gran Coupe is indeed coming next year, most likely as a 2014 model year car with a few added features from the current morel.
The engine under the sculpted hood is no secret. It’s the S63Tu you get in the regular M6, but rumor has it BMW will introduce it will a bit more power than the usual 560 PS you get in an M5 or M6. A 7-speed DCT double-clutch transmission will be offered, but the manual looks very unlikely.
