Exclusive: BMW M6 Gran Coupe Spied For First Time

Right now, there are two very interesting BMWs that have either been released or are about to be released. Namely, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe (just released) and the F12 BMW M6 which is literally on the verge of official release.

And so, speculation has rightly so centered around the possibility of the ultimate BMW M sedan, a combination of the 6 Series GC and the M6, a car to challenge and crush the 2012 Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG. Well, BMW has answered the call and it looks like the M6 Gran Coupe is a real car and judging by the very scant amount of camouflage on the car, is just around the corner as well. One wonders if the M6 and M6 Gran Coupe may bow together or with only a short interval between them.

What makes the M6 Gran Coupe so special?
Following the standard 6-series Gran Coupe, the M6 Gran Coupe is expected to utilize the best BMW has to offer in terms of quality of materials and the best powertrain available in a current BMW. The M6 is expected to be motivated by a derivative of the S63TU motor in the new M5, a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 which produced 560HP in the M5. However, in the M6 Gran Coupe, rumors have pointed to a power bump of 20HP to 580HP. Power will be delivered via a standard 7-Speed DCT transmission.

What will it look like without the camo?
It will look nearly identical to the photoshop render set by our artist, Wildspeed, take a look for yourself: http://www.6post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=645432. The car will wear the same front and rear end design as the M6 Coupe, albeit with 2-extra doors. The car photographed here seems to be BMW's new San Marino Blue. And did anyone notice the body colored strips on the roof? Could this be part of a camo scheme covering a CF roof?

$110K starting price? Just a guess.
For a variant of a M5? Problem is going to be price! Can get a CLS63 under $100K

Those are Dunlop Wintersport 3D tires on that car I believe, so it may be a winter setup they are testing.

I like the look of the 6 Gran Coupe, but even in camo, this M version looks badass. I might have to look into it down the road. I'm diggin' the new blue.

Definitely. Germans swap to winters this time of year.

This is going to be the largest M car ever.
