An odd choice to adorn a BMW 6 Series GT with M Performance Parts, but nonetheless, the Bavarians have decided to show us that anything is possible in the aftermarket world. At the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, BMW used the extensive M Performance Parts catalog to give an edge to the often criticized Gran Tourer.

The Alpine White 6 GT features, at the front, a blacked out kidney grille, one of the most common upgrades we see on a BMW. From the side, one can easily spot the gorgeous aftermarket wheels with the two tone color scheme and the red calipers from the upgraded brake system.

Side gills and carbon fiber mirror caps add even more flair to the design of the 6 Series Gran Turismo.

This particular model was the 640i Gran Turismo fitted with the B58 3-liter straight six engine found on almost the entire BMW range these days. The GT can rely on 340 PS and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. Going from stationary to 62 mph takes 5.4 seconds in the RWD model and 5.3 seconds on the xDrive version, despite the latter having a weight penalty of 65 kg to carry around (1,845 kg vs 1,910 kg or 4,067 lbs vs 4,210 lbs).
