There's been a lot of hate on BMW's 560 horsepower four-door coupe. Oh, they already have a four-door sedan. Oh they have too many cars in their lineup. Forget it, this M6 Gran Coupe looks amazing.

This thing is basically a parts-bin special, just with exceptionally precise Bavarian parts bin parts. There's the 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 (S63B44TU), with 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, just like you get in the M6 and the M5.


If your concern about the M6 Gran Coupe is about weight, the four-door coupe is just about even with the regular M5. The Gran Coupe is 4,299 pounds and the M5 is 4,288. That's heavy enough that we don't expect to see many people canyon carving in these M6 Gran Coupes. It's more about running 0-60 in 4.1 seconds and looking like the coolest guy at the country club.

It's no lithe, light E28 successor, but it is a big, brutish Autobahn cruiser. And it's gorgeous handsome.
