BMW has released pricing for the M6 Gran Coupe, which carries a starting MSRP of $116,150 including delivery, as well as a gas-guzzler tax estimated at $1,300.
All that cash will get you a twin-turbo V8 good for 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, which will push the car from 0-60 mph in only 4.1 seconds. While a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is available, a six-speed manual can be had for no extra cost.
That same twin-turbo V8 can also be found in the M5 and regular M6, but neither offers the same sophisticated style as the Gran Coupe. Buyers will drop an extra $22,800 for the swooping sedan over the M5, while a $3,800 premium is needed for the Gran Coupe rather than the regular M6.
While the standard M6 Gran Coupe comes well equipped, there a few package options that can boost the content in this German luxury sports car. The competition package is available for $6,000 and adds 15 hp, a higher stability-control threshold, a sport exhaust, and enhanced sport suspension settings.
Also available is the executive package, which adds a heated steering wheel, power rear sunshades, ventilated and active front seats, heated rear seats, full LED lighting, and a head-up display for an extra $5500.
Finally, a full suite of saftey tech is available from the driver assistance package, which includes blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, city collision mitigation, side and top-view parking cameras, and speed limit recognition, all for $1900.
Inside, Alcantara covers the headliner and M6 badging helps distinguish the cabin. The car also gets exclusive carbon fiber trim to match the roof and an iDrive 10.2-inch iDrive display — all of which is standard equipment.
There are two German rivals that target the M6 Gran Coupe, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG and the Audi RS 7. The CLS63 is down on power comparatively at 518 hp and 402 lb-ft of torque, but it also has a starting MSRP of $95,900 and manages to avoid the gas-guzzler tax. On the other hand, the Audi RS 7 makes 560 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, beating out both of its rivals. Pricing for the RS 7 is still not available.
