BMW's “four-door coupe” rendition of its performance-packed M6 Series makes an enticing choice for all-out BMW enthusiasts who aren’t quite satisfied with two doors. Based on the 5 Series sedan, the M6 also is available as a conventional two-door coupe or convertible. BMW introduced the Gran Coupe body style for 2013, and it’s become quite a popular version. Each M model has rear-wheel drive and a muscular V8 engine, practically guaranteed to deliver a stimulating yet luxurious motoring experience.
What's New for 2017
Last year brought a mild makeover to the M6 Gran Coupe. For 2017, wireless charging and a wi-fi hotspot have been made standard, along with the latest iDrive control system (5.0). Smartphone integration is no longer offered, as its functions are part of the new wireless charging. Standard wheels are now finished in high gloss black.
Choosing Your BMW M6 Gran Coupe
Beneath the M6 hood, a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine sends 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels, through a seven-speed M double-clutch automated-manual transmission. Automatic start/stop technology is standard. The sleek four-door is loaded with the expected standard features, but can be enhanced with option groups that address safety, comfort, and performance.
In addition to an aluminum hood and doors, the M6 has a carbon fiber composite roof and Shadowline exterior trim. Inside, Merino leather upholstery and door trim blends with black carbon fiber elements.
Standard equipment includes automatic soft-close doors, 20-way multi-contour front seats with articulated upper backrest and adjustable thigh support, four-zone automatic climate control, power folding heated mirrors, adaptive LED headlights, front/rear parking sensors, and 20-inch alloy wheels. The Harman Kardon 16-speaker surround-sound system is rated 600 watts.
Starting at $117,500, the M6 Gran Coupe doesn't really require any extras. Still, for buyers at this price level, the Executive Package might make sense, despite its hefty cost. More appealing yet is the value-packed Driver Assistance Plus Package. We'd skip the Competition Package unless you're planning to push your BMW to the limit on a regular basis, or to flaunt its capabilities at a racetrack.
