Spied: 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe
BMW launched the 6 Series Gran Coupe a while ago and the F12/F13 M6 a lesser while ago and here we are wondering what’s the next step in this evolution.
Yep, it’s the upcoming 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe. It was recently spied in the winter testing haven that most photographers haunt and the shots have started trickling in.
Unfortunately, the camouflage levels are considerably bigger than you’d expect, especially since word has it the 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe will debut later this year.
Apart from a new lower body kit we really don’t expect much of a surprise from the 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe. Actually, the surprises are expected to be even less impressive than that.
The engine will be the same 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 we’ve seen before in the X5 M, X6 M, M5 and M6. We might see it get a little tuned up but we don’t expect it to produce much more than 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque.
No new gearboxes are expected and nor do we expect to see any revolution in driving dynamics.
That said, because of the larger and heavier body BMW will have their work cut out designing a suspension system for the M6 Gran Coupe.
Where things are likely to become a little bit more impressive is in the interior. Apart from that “all cars should have one” M Button addition and a few tasty gadgets, BMW should provide something special.
Be it a steering wheel that’s not a dust bin lid with two holes in it or a special seating support system (maybe one that does the same for the rear seats), something will be there.
