The new 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is currently being tested in Germany by journalists from around the world (BMWBLOG’s own review will follow soon). Earlier today we brought you a video of the super sporty four-door M6 Gran Coupe running to 300 km/h on the Autobahn.
Along with the video, we are now giving a high-res photo gallery of the elegant and sporty Gran Coupe.
Under the hood, the M6 Gran Coupe features a high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 560 hp and 680 Newton meters (502 lb-ft) on tap between 1,500 and 5,750 rpm, while maximum output is developed between 6,000 and 7,000 rpm. The engine revs to a maximum of 7,200 rpm.
