730 HP BMW M6 Gran Coupe Is a Tuning Hybrid

We head down to Abu Dhabi, once again, to show you one of the best looking M6 Gran Coupe models we’ve seen so far. What makes this car special is the fact that, unlike most tuned cars out there, it didn’t stick to just one manufacturer when picking out the components but went for several choices.

That’s how we ended up with a car that, according to the Abu Dhabi BMW dealership where it was spotted, is pushing 730 HP to the rear wheels and looks absolutely mean.

Looking at the figure the 4.4-liter V8 engine is claiming, we’re pretty sure the ECU was fiddled with by the guys from Manhart that are currently offering a stage 4 kit that takes the power output of an S63 engine over 700 HP and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque.

Unfortunately, no official info was provided regarding this aspect or other technical details so we can’t really confirm it. However, we can say that the exterior was done using Manhart Racing and Kelleners Sport items with certainty.

The bonnet comes from Manhart and so does the rear diffuser and trunk lip but up front you’ll also notice Kelleners Sport’s spoiler lip that gives the whole thing a entirely different look. Oh, and we shouldn’t forget about the Akrapovic exhaust with carbon fibre tips.

Other than that, the car seems rather stock, including the wheels. Considering the serious power increase the engine got, we think a set of Carbon Ceramic Brakes would’ve been more appropriate to keep the 2 ton monster in control.
