According to the Roundel-obsessed crew at BMWBlog.com
, the all-new M6 Gran Coupe has received an exclusive unveiling at der Nürburgring
, ahead of its official debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
This car is essentially a more aggressive version of the sexy 6-Series Gran Coupe
with the powertrain from an M6
. Sounds like a good combination to us. It should pump out 560 horsepower, top out at 155 miles per hour (limited, of course), and hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The price? Around $120,000. To put that in perspective, a Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG starts at just under
$100,000, and can be bumped up to 550-horsepower for just an extra $7300.
In fact, the M6 Gran Coupe will be the second most expensive model in the BMW range, bested only by the spectacular, V-12-powered 760Li
. We can’t wait. We’ll have more on the M6 Gran Coupe when it makes its debut in January at the 2013 NAIAS.
