At a private Nurburgring event, BMW unveiled to a selected group the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe.

The M6 Gran Coupe will go on sale in Summer of 2013, while the official web debut will take place next month. the car will make its first public appearance in January at the Detroit Auto Show.

Design wise, the M6 Gran Coupe builds atop the recently launched M6 and 6 Series Gran Coupe, and if our sources are correct, this will be the best looking M in the current fleet.

The model displayed at the event featured the expensive, track-focused M ceramic brakes.

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.

Top speed will of course be limited to the usual 155mph, and 0-62mph should be achieved in 4.5 seconds.

When it comes to market in 2013, we anticipate the base price of the M6 Gran Coupe to be around $120,000. The only more expensive BMW in the fleet will be the 760Li.

    Big fatass moneymaker. The company needs it, not the enthusiasts.

      What a troll! Who says all M cars have to be small?? It makes much more sense to have a wide range of M cars from small to big to enter all the segments of the market! The S63/65 AMG and the Audi S8 sell pretty well and get decent reviews, it would be very stupid of BMW not to enter this segment. BMW is a luxury car maker not a boyracer car maker.

    I want to perform a money shot all over the car.

  4. Dan says:

    Awesome!!! The car looks amazing. I want it more than any other M.

    Suddenly, an M7 doesn’t make sense anymore. This thing, does!

    The Gran Coupe is a hell of a car. I have seen so many of them in London now that they are just a litle too common for my liking in this city but still a real monster of a car to admire. If only they were not too common on the streets of London I would have got a second one for the time that I am spending here.

  7. Likely to be the most beautifull car in all BMW fleet. Damn those rims are AWESOMES

    bmw are very handy now with the carbon fibre. i never thought about the roof of this car nice to see its in carbon fibre. if you own a carbon fibre factor you may as well make the most of it. now bmw has to make a csl m6

  9. Auto Manager says:

    Somehow, I don’t think that it is going to be something great. At least, it will not be better than the M5 or M6. And it means that it will not be at the same high level than the Panamera Turbo S. Therefore, this project is another waste of money and energy. Come on, BMW! Make a competitor to the SLS AMG. Or don’t you have enough balls for it?
