2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe Review by CAR Magazine
First of all, the M6 Gran Coupe is not a more expensive M5. It's based on the F06 6 Series Gran Coupe platform and will compete with the likes of Mercedes-Benz's CLS 63 AMG and the upcoming Audi RS7.
Pricewise, the M6 GC sits just between the two, talking just base price, of course. The V8 4.4-liter S63 engine (which is shared with the M5 and M6 Coupe) develops the same 560 HP and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque and pushes the Gran Coupe up to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds.
Standard features include 20-inch wheels, M Sport seats, an extended leather pack, a head-up display plus parking sensors, heated seats, automatically dimming rear-view and exterior mirrors, and BMW Professional multimedia/sat-nav. Optional features can get you anything you need in a car. From keyless entry to Carbon Ceramic Brakes.
Driving the will feel exactly as it should. It's more comfortable than the M5 in Comfort mode and just as reckless in Sport+ Mode. Furthermore, the steering feels more precise than in the M5 and will adjust perfectly around the mode you select.
Overall, the car is almost perfect. It more comfortable than the M5 and will do almost the same things but better when used on a daily basis. It looks stunning and most competitor should be afraid of it.
