F06 M6 Gran Coupe Competition Pack – rare!
The M6 Gran Coupe is without doubt one of the most elegant modern M cars, with a sleek 4-door design that looks great from every angle. But those elegant looks hide the heart of a mile-eating monster with supercar performance to complement the luxury spec. The total production run of just under 1200 RHD units also makes it one of the rarest around, and in Competition Pack guise, it’s even rarer – just 287 RHD cars in total. And that before we start on the colour…
Without doubt, the CP edition is the one to have. The 4.4 litre, twin turbo V8 S63 motor produces supercar levels of power – 575bhp (up from 560 due to revised boost mapping) and 500lb/ft of torque – mated to a 7-speed dual clutch manual gearbox (with auto-mode obviously). The CP cars are visually similar to the standard model, with only those black-tipped tail pipes giving the game away to ‘those who know’. But under the skin there are plenty of tweaks for the enthusiast – uprated suspension including springs, damping, bushes and antiroll bars. The steering got a quicker rack and revised Servotronic software, and the diff and DSC both got tuning upgrades.
But the M6 Gran Coupe also has arguably one of the best interior layouts, with a bright cabin and beautifully designed ergonomic driver interface. Basically, it is a lovely place to sit, and the last of the M cars that references the old BMW policy of an uncluttered cabin to reduce driver stress and distraction. The now familiar engine, steering, suspension and gearbox selections are there, with plenty of adjustments/combinations for a custom set up, but the layout is simple and easy to use, making it perhaps the last M car you can just get in and drive, without reading the instruction manual or taking half an hour to set the car up before you drive off.
Enthusiasts of big, powerful M cars will note that despite the refined looks and elegant interior, the exhaust note leaves you in no doubt what you’re dealing with – for other road users it may come as something of a shock to see such a classy looking car move so fast.
This particular M6 GC CP is in the both rare and stunning Java metallic green, and certainly it’s not the car to choose if you’re hoping to slip by unnoticed. But for those that like to make an impression, you can’t get much cooler than this. There’s a great spec, too, including soft close doors, reversing camera, adaptive lights, surround view, DAB and a decent Harman/Kardon surround stereo (full details on listing).
Our technical team have carried out the usual rigorous checks, and the results don’t disappoint, the car showing itself to be in excellent condition. For those who prefer fixed cost security, a genuine BMW warranty is available – please ask for details.
