2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe Mixes Power and Comfort

BMW’s M6 Gran Coupe isn’t new from a specifications perspective, but the 2013 Detroit Auto Show is the first time the car is actually making a public appearance.

Equipped with the brand’s 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 that it shares with both the M5 and M6, the car has 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. That’s good for a 0-60 mph run in only 4.1 seconds.

At a certain point, BMW performance becomes less about the numbers and more about how nice the car is to sit in and to look at. That’s where the M6 Grand Coupe shines – or doesn’t as it happens with BMW’s “frozen” matte paint.

Regardless of how you feel about the sheen-less finish, there’s no question that the car has a gorgeous interior. From top to bottom, the cabin is trimmed in touchable leather and carbon fiber with plenty of space for rear-seat passengers. An Alcantara headliner adds to the premium feel, especially from the back seats.
