By |December 18th, 2014|News|0 Comments

As BMW continues to push the boundaries of what a luxury auto maker can do the introduction of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe proves to push one step further. With 560 horsepower being pushed to the rear wheels via a 4.4-Liter M TwinPower Turbo V-8 and a 7-Speed M Double Clutch transmission. The result is another M characteristic: linear, instantaneous delivery of a massive 500 lb-ft of torque over a broad rpm range from idle to high revs. This means a 0-60 mph of just 4.1 seconds, or 4.0 seconds with the Competition Package.

As with all BMWs the appeal isn’t only under the hood. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe features the all new iDrive 4.2 navigation system with an optimized menu display and state-of-the-art technologies including real time traffic data.
