2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe | €128,800.00 | www.bmw.com
instead of owning two rides: one for family practicality and another to satisfy your need for speed, why not settle for one that does it all? such as this 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe? this newest member of the M family – more specifically, the M6 nucleus family – joins the performance lineup, bringing along up to three more seats and an extra two more doors for practicality’s sake. it is a Beemer and it is a M ride, so expect nothing less than a meeting of luxury and high-revving performance for this beauty. the BMW M6 Gran Coupe’s 4.4-liter V8 unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology kicks out 560 horsepower (412 kW) to its rear wheels and offers a peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) across a broad rpm range. mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic, the Gran Coupe is capable of rocketing from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a mere 4.2 seconds and on the way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). for the hopeless speed demons, you can choose to up the ante by opting for the M Driver’s Package for a mind-blowing 305 km/h (189 mph) top speed instead.
