BMW sure chose a strange way to unveil the production version of its upcoming M6 Gran Coupe. The German carmaker brought the sports sedan along to an unrelated happening at the Nürburgring, and unsurprisingly, a few journalists attending the event did not miss out on the opportunity to snap a few pictures of the camouflage-free model.
The Bavarian brand did not release any information regarding the M version of the Gran Coupe, which itself, despite the confusing name, is a four-door sedan iteration of the 6-Series Coupe.
Nevertheless, we already know that the M6 Gran Coupe shares its powertrain with the two-door M6 models (coupe and convertible), meaning there's a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 553hp (560PS) delivered from 6,000 to 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 680Nm (501 lb-ft) from 1,750 to 5,750 rpm, lurking under the hood.
A 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) will transfer power to the rear wheels through BMW's Active M Differential, while the car also gets a new aero kit, a carbon fiber roof, 20–inch wheels and a revised chassis.
Among other publications that were at the Nürburgring event was Car Magazine, which also took some pictures and in the process, learned that BMW will unveil the M6 Gran Coupe online in December and in the flesh in January at the Detroit Motor Show.
