Can anyone tell us why the measurements on speedometer go at equal intervals when the vehicle’s speed does not. For example, even tiny Matiz can gain the 40 km/hour speed in two seconds, but BMW M6 Gran Сoupe has another problem – first third of the scale is simply useless. Why do we even need 30, 60, 90 km/hour intervals on the speedometer if a slightly acceleration gets you beyond 100 km/hour category? Such fast start, however, is not the only thing that makes your soul go into heels. Going to 220 from 180 km/hour takes as much time as it does to get 110 km/hour speed from 70. And the feeling you experience can be compared with driving in a high-speed elevator, you don’t even care what floor you’re going to.
It’s really easy to be so cool when you have such powerful engine under your hood.
Eight cylinders, two twin-scroll turbochargers, high-precision direct injection system, crossover exhaust manifold, camshafts with phase shifters ... but we might be forgetting something. Such 4.4-litre engine gives 560 hp and 680 N/m. This vehicle could be easily called Rammstein, that’s how cool and powerful it is. And if Robert Sheckley could see this V8, he’d be convinced that humanity has finally built an engine to travel through galaxies and time.
This engine is installed in M6 Coupe, M5, and now M6 with Gran Coupe prefix. Why do we need so many of them? Well, it can’t be any different in our reality. Seems like BMW engineers would be happy with just one M model, but company’s management and CEO’s think different. Oh, and the competitors are also catching up, producing new models as you read these lines. What would you do if a dealer next to you had a Mercedes E63 AMG and CLS-class vehicles and the only thing you have to offer is a lonely M5? It’s war, and you have to be prepared to face Audi RS6 and RS7 and all of the other models that could steal your clients. BMW M6 Gran Coupe is exactly the warrior that will help conquer the world and attract buyers from the competitors.
