completely built unit. “Seemingly
unstoppable, compellingly sporty, a singular presence—the all-new BMW M6 Gran
Coupe does not follow conventional rules, it sets new standards. What makes the

allow us to provide intensive training in sales, service, parts and business

of 680Nm @1500-5,750rpm. The engine revs to a maximum of 7,200 rpm. The BMW M6
Gran Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds on the way to an

potential embedded in the BMW 6 Series, says a company report.
