Cool More Views of 6 Series Gran Coupe M Sport

BIMMERPOST NEWS
More Views of 6 Series Gran Coupe M Sport

COMMENTS

We present more more views of the 6 Series Gran Coupe, including rear and interior shots for the first time.

Looking like M Sport package for the 6 series coupe and convertible, the M Sport package for the 6 Series Gran Coupe will be available from launch. The package will include, as pictured, the M Sport aero kit (front bumper, rear diffuser/bumper, and sideskirts). Exhaust tips will be finished in black chrome and brakes painted black. 19" and 20" wheel options will be available as part of the package.

The interior features the typical M Sport accoutrements such as alcantara/leather M Sport seats (not available in US) with M colors/blue stitching, hexagon patterned aluminum trim, M steering wheel, and M door sills.

love the whole package

I still don't see why BMW USA can't offer Alcantara as a special signature option since these are all built in Deutschland. I love how that interior looks with the Alcantara!

Stunning. Masterpiece.

Bummer that the Gran Coupe will only come with an automatic, though I guess we should be more amazed that a manual is even available anywhere on the 5 and 6 Series, especially these days. Still, I've heard that then new 8-speed auto is pretty impressive, though DCT would have been cool.

I too wish we were getting those seats -- I bet the reason we won't is some stupid safety crash test thing. That's why the 3 Series in the US can't be specified with Merino leather even through Individual despite that option being available elsewhere in the world.

And WOW, those 0-60 times are amazing! 4.4 seconds for the 650i and 4.3 for the 650i xDrive -- that's quicker than an M3! The weird thing is that the smaller and lighter 650i Coupe is rated for 4.9, although it has lower hp/tq figures. I guess this "Technical Update" to the N63 is nothing to sneeze at.

Not sure how popular the Frozen colors will be on the 6 Gran Coupe though....

Re

Jason, thanks for posting...for new 6 series including grand coupe have to say I don't feel it at all, very disappointed with the design of the car. I just have to say: Opel Insignia, this car came out few years ago.

I think this is one of the first BMWs I prefer without the M-Sport package...

How long before we see a M// version of the Gran Coupe, BMW needs a CLS AMG killer really bad and this is a great start!
