Cool First USA Production Spec M6 Gran Coupe in Sakhir Orange and Frozen White (Pics)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
These are the first US Spec Series Production M6 Gran Coupes. The Sakhir Orange and what looks like matte Frozen White are the only two cars of these color I've seen in print anywhere since development started on the M6GC. Both cars have the Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

I was skeptical of a 4 Dr F13 M6 Coupe. However, after seeing the M6GC in the metal...I'm sold. Maybe the best road stance of any current BMW model. The length of the car helps create a low slung stance, kick ass stance. You really see a lot more of the Carbon Fiber roof on the M6GC vs the F13 M6.....The Carbon Fiber roof really adds a unique silhouette to the top part of the car. I know the drive train is the same in the M6GC as in the F10 M5 and F13 M6. However, I heard 4 or 5 M6 GC's pull off a traffic light in the last few days. I've heard many many F10 M5 and F13 M6 Exhaust notes at the Performance Center. The M6GC had a very aggressive exhaust note....more aggressive to me than the M5 and M6. Maybe you get a little extra jacked up exhaust note for the top of the line "M" vehicle??

I understand the cars are headed to Austin,TX for Press Drives in the next couple of weeks. Circuit of the America's I bet.... Awesome car......BMW pulled it off with the extra length...the car works in the metal. Enjoy. Thanks. PalBay

Nice. Anyone have interior pics of the US car? I want to know if they have the good seats or the crap seats...

Looking in the window it looks like the crap seats.

SO with the ceramic brakes is the best combo possible for the M6 GC. Perfect!

Those are great photos Palbay! I agree 100% with you, the M6 GC is one good looking machine!

Great looking cars.

I know I'm in a minority here, but I think M5/M6 20" wheels (on the SO car) look much cleaner and better than the standard M6GC wheels.

I really like the rear brake light, how it extends across the entire windshield (kind of like Bently).

Also the M6GC looks great in FW, probably awesome in FB as well.

Spotted Sakhir Orange ///M3

I spotted this beautiful e92 ///M3 while my e82 1///M was in the shop. The driver actually ran against the supercharged Range Rover Sport I was driving and gave me thumbs up; Only if he know how badly I was wishing I was in my 1er at that moment! Sakhir orange is a stunning color, truly stunning enough to make you pause and take a longer look! Do not mind his eagle eye in the first pic, he later understood my passion as we spoke a few lights down and he confirmed that the color was in fact Sakhir Orange. Enjoy!

I may be the only one to say this: I'm already sick and tired of this Sakhir Orange.
BMW's been pushing this color to the market ever since 2011 and they're not backing down. It looks too joyful and toyish IMO.
