Otto’s BMW Dealer near Glen Mills knows that just a few short months ago Bavarian Motor Works unveiled the revolutionary 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe BMW at a highly-anticipated private event in Germany that only a precious few attendees were granted the privilege of gracing.
As promised by officials at BMW dealers, the 2013 performance version of the 6 Series is to be released this summer. True to its technologically-savvy nature, BMW actually unveiled the new M6 to the world via the web in December of 2012. Early this year, in January, the official public debut took place at the Detroit Auto Show.
The exterior design of the new M6 is extremely visually appealing – it manages to exude power, prestige, sportiness, luxury, and comfort all at the same time. It borrows and blends design cues from both the current BMW M6 and the 6 Series Gran Coupe. Many reviewers have agreed that this M6 could easily be the best looking M6 not only so far, but maybe even the best looking M car in the fleet.
The much-buzzed about ceramic brakes may or may not be incorporated into the final M6 design; they were featured on the M6 that debuted in Germany.
The 2013 M6 Gran Coupe is powered by the same engine system that powers the latest version of the BMW M5 and M6: a 560 horsepower M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine mated to a high torque 7-speed M-Double Clutch transmission (M-DCT). Maximum speed is 155 miles per hour and the acceleration rate is 0 to 62 miles per hour in a mere 4.5 seconds.
Rumors have been swirling since the debut about whether a manual transmission will be offered for customers in the United States.
