New BMW M6 Gran Coupe


Recommended Posts

BMW first showed us its new M6 Gran Coupe in December and now the sportiest version of the 6 series is having its world premiere at the Detroit Auto Show together with one of its main rivals in the segment, the new Audi RS7 Sportback.

The M treatment brings a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 churning out a peak output of 552hp (560PS) between 6,000 and 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 501 lb-ft (680Nm) between 1,500 and 5,750 rpm.

Coincidentally or not, these figures are almost identical to those of Ingolstadt's twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 at 552hp (560PS) and 516 lb-ft (700Nm) available constantly from 1,750 to 5,500 rpm.

A standard seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission drives the sport sedan's rear tires, with BMW quoting a 0-60mph (96km/h) time of 4.1 seconds, or 0.2 seconds slower than the Audi, and an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h).

Can't wait to see the first track face off between this car and the RS7 with The Stig or Tiff behind the wheel +++
