When we had the chance to test drive the new 2014 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe we begged the idea of BMW turning this coupe-styled sedan into an official M car. Sure, there were already speculations of the Gran Coupe coming in an M flavor but nothing set in stone. Well, BMW has answered our prayers with the official introduction of the new 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe to join the M car rankings of the new M5, M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible.

The new M6 Gran Coupe features the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine rated at 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque as found at the heart of the new M5 and M6 vehicles. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) and unique Active M Differential combining an electronic control and a multi-plate limited-slip diff. Locking force can be varied from 0 to 100 percent to optimize traction and stability.

The new 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is said to dash from 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and hold a steady electronically limited 155 mph top speed. We look for many available options in the current BMW 650i Gran Coupe to be standard on the new M6 Gran Coupe with a full list of packaged and a-la-cart options customized for the true M-Motorsport experience.

Look for the new 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe to reach US BMW Showrooms in early Summer of 2013. Official technical specifications and pricing will be relabeled closer to its start-sales date.

It was only inevitable that we would see the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe receive the proper M treatment as have virtually every other BMW series. According to Car and Driver, BMW has now confirmed a new M6 Gran Coupe coming to the U.S. likely as a 2014 model year.

Spy photographers already captured what appeared to be a new M6 Gran Coupe in testing. We even posted new renderings of what a new M6 Gran Coupe would look like. Now it is official, the new M6 Gran Coupe will borrow it’s M5 and M6 siblings’ twin-turbo V8 engine and 7-speed DCT dual-clutch transmission. Just like Car and Driver, we hope to see them source the U.S. version of the new M6 Coupe’s 6-speed manual transmission in the M6 Gran Coupe.

The new 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe will compete with the current Benz CLS63 AMG and Porsche Panamera. We look for an official reveal of the M6 Gran Coupe around the end of 2012 or early 2013 carrying a price possibly $10k to $15k north of the current 2013 M5 Sedan’s MSRP.

In today’s spectrum of talented automotive enthusiasts, all it takes is a little photoshop rendering to come up with an excellent representation of upcoming vehicles yet to be seen in their full lively flesh. The latest vehicle to receive such photoshop treatment is the 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe.

We already know what the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe looks like. In retrospect, Wild Speed has taken upon the task of rendering what the upcoming 2013 BMW M6 Gran Coupe will look like in the images revealed below.

Along with the new rendered images of the M6 Gran Coupe, is the obvious idea that the M6 Gran Coupe, competing directly with the Benz CLS63 AMG and Porsche Panamera, will carry a price tag north of $110,000. Considering how the BMW M6 coupe and convertible were recently announced to carry a price of $106,995 and $113,995 respectfully, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe will be a pricier option. With that price should come a 580 horsepower Twin Turbo V8 engine mated to a 7-Spee DCT (dual clutch) Transmission.

Reportedly, the new M6 Gran Coupe will premier the second half of the year in the Fall.
