BMW to launch updated 2015 model of the M6 Gran Coupe alongside its first M Studio showroom
BMW is looking to take its high performance M brand forward in India with its new M Studio range of showrooms that will exclusively showcase its high performance M range of cars. Bringing in this range of BMWM Studio showrooms will be the 2015 model of the M6 Gran Coupe.
Alongside the new BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the BMW M Studio showrooms will showcase the BMW M3, M4 and M5 models that are available in India. The first BMW M Studio showroom will be inaugurated in Mumbai on September 30, following which these BMW performance car showrooms will also be opened in other metro cities such as Delhi and Bangalore in the near future. Essentially, the M Studio showrooms will be an extension of standard BMW showrooms as exclusive space to promote its high performance cars and cater to performance oriented customers.
When it comes to the updated BMW M6 Gran Coupe, much remains the same as the outgoing model that was also on sale in India. Changes include new LED head lamps and updates for the telematics and infotainment system along with minor styling changes. More importantly, the BMW M6’s powertrain remains untouched with its 4.4 litre V8 petrol engine developing 560bhp of max power @ 6,000 rpm and 680Nm of peak torque @ 1,500 rpm. The engine continues to be mated to an eight-speed Steptronic sport automatic gearbox.
The previous BMW M6 Gran Coupe was priced at Rs. 1.71 crore (ex-showroom Delhi), expect the 2015 model to be priced in the same range. The BMW M6 Gran Coupe will rival the likes of the Audi RS7 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG in India.
