The BMW M6 Gran Coupe is an extreme high-performance four-door coupe and one of three models in the M6 range, alongside the two-door coupe and convertible. It offers a slightly more practical alternative to the two-door M6 Coupe without sacrificing the car’s massive performance and imposing looks.

Equipment

This is a car with a list price that begins at the thick end of £100,000, so as you’d expect the M6 Gran Coupe comes with an awful lot of kit as standard.

Standard BMW M6 Gran Coupe equipment

There’s high-quality leather upholstery throughout the interior along with Alcantara headlining and plenty of carbon fibre trim across the doors and centre console. The front seats are heated and the triple-zone automatic air-conditioning system has separate controls for rear passengers.

Clear graphics are displayed across the multimedia system’s wide screen which is controlled via BMW’s elegant iDrive interface. The high-end Professional Multimedia sat-nav system is standard and includes real-time traffic information plus access to various internet based Apps and online services.

Digital DAB radio is also fitted, as is a 20GB hard disk drive to store music along with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Further standard equipment includes cruise control with an automatic brake function, adaptive LED headlights with automatic high-beam assist and a Head-up Display (HuD) system which projects the car’s speed, sat-nav directions and, if you want, tachometer readout onto the windscreen. It’s an effective system that’s particularly useful in the M6 – in a car that can cover ground so quickly, the longer you can keep your eyes on the road the better.

All M6 Gran Coupes are fitted with 20-inch double-spoke alloy wheels as standard and feature variable damper control, with three suspension modes ranging from the softest ‘Comfort’ setting to the firmest ‘Sport Plus’ setting.

Optional BMW M6 Gran Coupe accessories

As with the majority of BMWs there is an extensive and expensive list of options with which you can personalise your M6 Gran Coupe. Styling options include different designs of alloy wheel and special paint finishes – the car tested for this review and featured in many of the pictures wears an unusual ‘Frozen Bronze’ matt metallic paint option worth several thousand pounds, along with non-standard black wheels.

If you’re not keen on the standard carbon fibre interior trim you can spec various wood finishes instead.

On the performance front, specifying the Competition package boosts power by 15bhp to 567bhp and trims a tenth of second from the 0-62mph time, taking it down to 4.1 seconds. Fuel economy and emissions figures are unchanged. Also included in the package are a different exhaust system, steering settings and firmer suspension.

A few other highlights from the options list include a reversing camera and further all-round parking cameras with a birds-eye view display on the multimedia screen, sun protection glass, a sunblind for the rear window, a heated steering wheel and a 3G web-browsing function for the multimedia system, accessible when the car is stationary. The list goes on – there are very few equipment items that can’t be specified for the M6 Gran Coupe.
