The 2013 M6 coupe and 2012 M6 convertible have now made their world premieres and North American premieres, which brings us to the M6 Gran Coupe as the next M6 variant in the pipeline.

We've already seen plenty of the spy photos/videos of the M6 Gran Coupe, which together with the already revealed production 6-series Gran Coupe (photos 1, photos 2), gives us a very accurate idea of what the M6 Gran Coupe will look like. We previously posted some front and rear renders (reposted below) and we now present some side views.

The M6 Gran Coupe will wear the same front and rear end design as the M6 Coupe and Convertible, only with 2 more doors and a longer body. We've also included the sporty carbon fiber roof from the M6 coupe in these renders.

The M6 GC will directly challenge the 2012 Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG. What will the M6 GC bring to the shootout? Expect it to utilize the best BMW has to offer in terms of quality of materials and the best powertrain BMW is capable of developing currently. The M6 coupe and cabrio are powered by the M5's S63Tu engine, a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 which produces 560HP. However, for the M6 Gran Coupe, rumors have pointed to a potential power bump of 20HP to the 580HP ballpark. If true, this would be a fitting leading power figure for a flagship M car. Power will be delivered via a standard 7-Speed DCT transmission.

As for pricing? The M6 Gran Coupe will start well north of $100,000. BMW NA recently announced the pricing for the 640i, 650i, and 650i xDrive at $76,895, $87,395 and $90,395, respectively and the M6 coupe and convertible were announced at $106,995 and $113,995.

The M6 Gran Coupe's premiere should come in the second half of this year (in the Fall), we believe.
