BMW M6 Gran Coupe is now on sale for Rs. 1.75 crore in India. It will compete head on with the recently introduced Audi RS 7. Perfection means fulfilling the highest demands. Even from a distance, its powerful silhouette shows that the M6 Gran Coupe exceeds all expectations. Relentlessly pushing forwards, it presents itself stylishly on the street. Its dynamically designed lines, elongated hood and long wheelbase unify everything, which defines sporty design. The all-new Gran Coupe is also longer and wider and 5kg heavier as compared to M5 (1945kg). This is basically a go-faster version of the BMW 6 Series and revealed at Detroit Auto Show last year.
BMW India exhibited it here, at the 2014 Auto Expo this Feb. and unveiled its plans of introducing the 5-door coupe in the country. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe’s unique character is underscored by M6 logo in the M-specific kidney grille with chrome based double slats, spectacular roof constructed fully out of carbon and air vents. Selected materials and colors give the interior a striking air. The BMW individual roofliner in Alcantara and leather is closely moulded to the inner contours of the carbon roof, whereas the driver-oriented design exudes stylish elegance: at a slight angle, the central console presents all relevant info on 25.9cm Control Display.
The interior of BMW M6 Gran Coupe is equipped with plenty of high-tech features; these include a redesigned 3-spoke steering column, eight airbags, several driving modes, seat memory function and BMW’s iDrive. The M TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder petrol powerplant dispenses breathtaking power (560HP @ 6000-7000 rpm) and smooth torque (680 newton meters @ 1500-5750 rpm). The use of intelligent technologies sends driving pleasure soaring and effectively reduces emissions and fuel consumption. In spite of its impressive performance, the M6 Gran Coupe only consumes an average of 9.9 litres per 100 kilometers and is therefore one of the top of its segment. It accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in just 4.2 seconds with the top speed of 250kmph.
An uninterrupted flow of power and linear thrust mean even more adrenalin for the driver accelerating in the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. Yet even CO2 emissions and efficiency gain values that inspire! Intelligent technology for record-breaking performance; the M double-clutch 7-speed transmission with Drivelogic leads to high-precision gear shifts in fractions of a second and thus offers inspiring thrust without any loss in traction. And since less fuel always equals fewer emissions, the 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic ideally complements this modern and trend-setting sportscar in many respects.
