At a press event BMW confirmed the launch of the M6 Gran Coupe in 2013. We reported in the past that the first M6 with four-doors will come to market just a year after the launch of the M6 Coupe and Convertible models, and according to one of our sources, the M6 Gran Coupe will be “one of the best looking M cars to date.”

The official confirmation comes today from BMW Spokesman Dave Buchko via MotorTrend and confirms the launch of the M6 Gran Coupe next year, a model that will sell in the U.S. and around the world markets.

Confirmed: BMW M6 Gran Coupe Coming In 2013

M6 Gran Coupe builds atop the recently launched 6 Series Gran Coupe and will replace the M5 and M6 at the top of the M family. The power will come from the same engine as the new M5 and M6, a high revving 560 hp M TwinPower Turbo V8 mated to a high torque 7-speed M-Double Clutch transmission (M-DCT). It remains unknown if BMW will offer a manual transmission for U.S. customers as we have seen in the F10 M5.

The car will incorporate the typical M cues, flared fenders, larger air intakes and wheels, and the signature quad exhaust tips. Since the 6 Series Gran Coupe shares its underpinnings with the 5 Series Sedan, the M6 Gran Coupe model will most likely have more mechanical similarities to the M5 than the M6 Coupe.

When it comes to market, we anticipate the base price of the M6 Gran Coupe to be around $120,000.

  • BMW The Best

    The M5 is already there. don’t believe the M6 Gran Coupe will accelerate or handle as brilliantly as the M5, especially when the same power unit will be under its bonnet. It would have sense if BMW increased the power by at least 20hp as well as torque.
    So it’s just waste of money and time for BMW.

    I honestly don’t undrestandd how come bmw is Not capable of developing the M model along with the regular non M?….ok so you have the new 6 gran coupe out last month , why not have the M out in 3 months?…why all this bullshit , it will have the same engine as the m5 , (claimed)560hp but actually more than that , this car will look better than the M5.

      because they need time to test tweak the machine from the base model. Resources are used up before they can do a thorough job. So once the resources such as man power is done with the base model, they then use the knowledge acquired from the base model and proceed with the m-tuned version of the car.

    you guys clearly dont know cars and the whole reason this car was created its not supposed to compete with the M5 the same way the mercedes CLS isnt supposed to compete with th E class theres a whole new market for 4 door coupes its about time BMW came out with one the hold up to the compettition

    Since they are releasing the m6 a year later, hopefully they have found some way to improve on the gearing and suspension so the car will handle better and faster. just because they have the same engine doesn’t mean bmw didnt find a way to put more power to the wheels.
