Individual BMW M6 Gran Coupe Stuns with Its British Racing Green Paint

The M6 Gran Coupe is a good candidate for the title of the most expensive BMW in the current line-up, but it’s slightly overshadowed by its convertible brother, the M6 Convertible. Even so, deck it with enough amenities and the price tag quickly rockets towards $200,000.

One such expensive model was recently spotted in Munich, Germany, the home city of BMW. Judging by the license plates, the car actually belong to the company and is probably being used either to show people what the Individual range can do for them or, it’s a limited edition that is soon to be launched.

We were mentioning the Individual range because this is clearly a vehicle that went through this special program, wearing a color that doesn’t normally show up in the BMW configurator. We’re not sure what it’s called in the BMW catalogue but we’re pretty confident that it’s darn close to the British Racing Green Jaguar made famous a while ago.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get any pics of the interior but since this expensive paint was applied to the exterior, it’s highly unlikely that the interior is covered in anything else but Full Merino Leather.

As for the specs, the M6 Gran Coupe is rather a paradox. It’s heavier than the F10 M5 it’s based on and uses the same engine and transmission and yet, it’s also faster to 100 km/h (60 mph). While the sedan does the sprint in 4.4 seconds, the 4-door coupe is capable of doing the same 0.2 seconds faster.

Therefore, such a performance made some reviewers claim that the numbers BMW reported for the S63 engine (560 HP and 680 Nm of torque) are absolutely underrated, the car actually having over 600 HP to play around with. Of course, no official word about confirming or denying such rumors was released by the Germans but something tells us that if we dyno the M6 Gran Coupe we might be in for quite a surprise.
