Spyshots: 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe

The proof is in the exhaust with this car, the most powerful version of the new 6-Series Gran Coupe. While prototypes have been trying to fool us by showing themselves in an M body kit, this is the actual M6 Gran Coupe, a fact clearly indicated by the usual quad exhaust.

The engine in this car should surprise nobody, it’s the same 4.4-liter bi-turbo V8 as in the recently revealed M6 Coupe and Convertible. It puts out an impressive 560 horsepower and peak torque of 680Nm (502lb-ft) from 1,500 to 5,750 rpm. The power is delivered via a twin-clutch transmission to the rear via an M Active differential.

The prototype captured undergoing winter testing is a massively impressive brute of a car, with flared wheelarches, big wheels and the usual body kit. However, it’s the roof that interest us the most, as it’s been camouflaged, leading us to believe that carbon-fiber spirit of the M6 Coupe is evident there.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
