2014 M6 and 6 Series Coupe, Convertible, Gran Coupe US Pricing and Ordering Guides


M6:

M6 Gran Coupe

Standard Equipment
Active Protection has been added to all M6 models to initiate protective measures for occupants if an accident situation is imminent: front seatbelts are pulled tight, windows are closed, and brakes are automatically applied after crash. Includes Attention Assistant, whereby the system’s electronics analyze driving behavior on the basis of various signals such as steering angle, road speed and other engine parameters. If the system increasingly detects signs of fatigue starting to build up, it issues a notification via the central Control Display to encourage the driver to take a break.

Packages/ Options
We’re pleased to announce the introduction of a new Competition Package (ZCP) available for $6,000. Further enhancing vehicle dynamics and performance, the Competition Package includes:
  • Exclusive 20” M wheels (style 601M with performance tires) are available when purchasing the package, in addition to alternate 20” wheel choices.
  • Horsepower increase (+15 hp)
  • Faster acceleration (-0.1 seconds: 0-60 mph)
  • New suspension and damper application
  • New mechanical steering with more direct input
  • Sport exhaust with black chrome tailpipes and enhanced sound
The Driver Assistance Package (ZDA) is now Driver Assistance Plus (ZDB). Pricing has not changed.
  • Option 5AS in the Driver Assistance Plus Package (ZDB) is now referred to as Active Driving Assistant (previously named Lane Departure Warning with Collision Mitigation). It still includes Lane Departure Warning functionality, but has been updated with pedestrian warning and approach control warning with light city braking.
X11 BMW Individual Frozen Bronze Metallic Paint is now available on all M6 models.

Pricing for BMW Individual Paint has been increased by $150.

All-new for MY2014, BMW introduces the M6 Gran Coupe with production beginning in April 2013. As with the M6 Coupe and Convertible, it boasts the most powerful engine ever outfitted in a BMW paired with a high-torque 7-speed M-Double Clutch.

The M6 Gran Coupe will have the same level of standard equipment as the MY 2014 M6 Coupe, including the new Navigation System Professional (609) with faster processing, an enhanced design, and several great new features. The M6 Gran Coupe will also receive the following additional standard equipment enhancements that are not offered on the M6 Coupe:
  • Through-loading system
  • 4-Zone Climate Control
  • Enrichment Package:
  • 20'' M light alloy wheel (exclusive to the M6 Gran Coupe)
  • Bi-Color Leather/Alcantara Headliner
  • carbon fiber rear diffuser apron
  • double-spoke black and chrome kidney grill with M designation
  • floor mats with contrasting leather binding
  • black chrome accents
The M6 Gran Coupe will have the same options and packages as the M6 Coupe, which change as follows for MY 2014:
  • Manual Transmission (2MA) is now available as a no-cost alternative to the 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission.
  • M Carbon Ceramic Brakes (2NK) are now offered as a stand-alone option for $9,250 and will be included in the Ultimate Service maintenance program.
  • The Executive Package (ZEC) has been adopted from the M6 Coupe package, which has been revised to add Front Ventilated Seats (453) and remove Satellite Radio (655) and Soft-Close Doors (323) which are now standard. Smartphone Integration (was 6NF, now part of 6NS) and BMW Apps (6NR is now standard as part of the Connected Drive enhancements) have also been removed from ZEC. Power side sunshades (416) and Heated Rear Seats (496) have been included in ZEC for the M6 Gran Coupe models, but are not available for the M6 Coupe. ZEC pricing is $5,500.

M6 Convertible:

As of July 2013 production, the standard equipment level and option offer have been enhanced even further:

You can now get manual in a M6GC... so you're depreciation will go 20% faster than the 7-speed DCT.

Really? 6-speed E63 M6's are like unicorns and fetch a large premium over their common SMG counterpart (for every 10 SMG coupe built, 1 Manual 6-speed was built, literally making total production of manual coupes 385 units across all years)

And no this isn't some bs forum guy speculation, I've been searching the depths of internet Narnia to find a 08 and up (LCI) black or white coupe with 0 success.

Interesting that BMW doesn't call out the same -.1 second to 60 acceleration time that ZCP gives the M6 Coupe and GC for the M6 Convertible. Does the added 15HP boost do nothing?

And if so, why does the same package cost $1,300 extra on the convertible than it does on the Gran Coupe?

No.

Unfortunately, the 6-series is the only model not to have the iDrive touch pad technology for 2014.
