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.

Standard BMW M6 Gran Coupe safety systems include tyre pressure monitoring, Emergency Call (which can automatically alert the emergency services in the event of a crash if there is no response from the car’s occupants) and ‘Dynamic Safety’ which automatically tightens the seatbelt when required and automatically applies the brakes in the event of a crash to avoid a potential secondary impact.

Front and rear parking sensors are also standard and the adaptive LED headlights’ cornering function, which projects part of the beam towards the inside of the bend at lower driving speeds, works very well.

Further safety systems available as options at extra cost include a lane change warning system, a night vision system with pedestrian recognition and a speed limit display. For those seeking extra stopping power, carbon ceramic brakes are also an option although they’re certainly not cheap…

Reliability

As long as you get it serviced regularly BMW M6 Gran Coupe reliability shouldn't cause too much heartache. If you're likely to take the car on track, inspect it thoroughly before and after to spot and rectify any issues early.

Optional service packages are available where for a reasonable sum BMW will look after servicing costs for five years/50,000 miles. The more substantial Service Inclusive Plus package can cover maintenance items including brake pads, discs and windscreen wiper blades.
