BMW India Rolls Out M6 Gran Coupé

The BMW M6 Gran Coupé, the four-door high performance sports coupé, was launched in India on April 3 at the new BMW Group Training Centre at Gurgaon, in a petrol variant at an all India Ex-showroom price of Rs. 17,540,000.

Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India, said, “Seemingly unstoppable, compellingly sporty, a singular presence – the BMW M6 Gran Coupé does not follow conventional rules, it sets new standards. What makes the 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 new flagship of BMW M, M6 Gran Coupé is a vision of poise and assurance combining hallmark M high-performance refinement with captivating aesthetics, an opulent ambience and a comfortably-sized cabin.

The M6 Gran Coupé will be available in Alpine White as non-metallic paintwork and in the following eight metallic paintworks: Black Sapphire, Silverstone, Space Grey, San Marino Blue, Sakhir Orange, Havanna, Singapore Grey and Imperial Blue Brilliant Effect.

Exterior

The vehicle boasts of extraordinary 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 diffuser in the rear apron, crafted from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), optimises under-body airflow.

Interior

BMW M6 Gran Coupé comes with striking features such as the multifunction M leather-steering wheel and the M centre console, which is inclined slightly towards the driver and has controls for different M driving dynamics systems and the instrument cluster display. Standard M seats with electric adjustment promise optimum comfort, while M multifunction active seats with climate control are available on request.

Another highlight of the BMW M6 Gran Coupé is the roof, made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). The extremely lightweight design provides superior torsional stiffness and reduces weight by 25 kg compared to that of a conventional glass sunroof. The M6 Gran Coupé provides the kind of spaciousness that is far from the usual coupé fare. A through-loading hatch and 60:40-split folding rear seatback further provide an excellent usability.

Engine and Tranmission

The 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology in M6 Gran Coupé combines two TwinScroll turbochargers with Valvetronic, Double-VANOS and High Precision Injection to develop an output of 412 kW/560 hp and an impressive torque of 680 Nm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/hr takes 4.2 seconds and top speed is 250 km/h.

The 7-speed M Double Clutch transmission with Drivelogic ensures fast gearshifts without loss of power. Drivelogic also includes adjustable shift characteristics, a Low Speed Assistance system with a crawl function for increased comfort in stop-and-go traffic, a Launch Control system and an automatic “P” function. Motorsport-style shift paddles directly on the steering wheel allow the driver to engage all seven gears without having to lift off the accelerator.

Safety

The 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.
