BMW officials in Germany have confirmed that when the 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe gets unveiled, it will go on sale in the US too. This has also been confirmed by BMW US spokesman Dave Buchko via US website MotorTrend. It was recently confirmed that US spec M6’s will get a manual transmission option. It’s unclear whether this will also be applied to the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
The BMW M6 Gran Coupe will feature the same basic specs as the BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible. The M6 features the same 4.4 liter V8 engine as the BMW M5. It gets 560hp and 680Nm of torque available from as low as 1,500rpm to 5,750rpm. The engine also features direct fuel injection, Valvetronic variable valve timing and Double VANOS continuously variable camshaft control, all of which help it to rev to 7,200rpm.
Many expect the M6 Gran Coupe to share the majority of its other parts with the F10 BMW M5. It has the same wheelbase which would make it a logical base for the BMW M6 running gear. BMW remain tight lipped about when we can expect to see the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
