When it comes to the M version of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, we've already seen spy photos and video of the car testing, but we've yet to see any shots of it in production trim until now. The new M6 Gran Coupe has done plenty of testing on the Nürburgring, but Car Magazine snapped a picture of the car sitting idle at the 'Ring, which was reportedly on hand for a BMW event.

Differing from the 640i Gran Coupe, this new four-door M6 looks to have the same aggressive body kit as its coupe counterpart, including the massive front air intakes and vented front fenders. The M6 GC does appear to be getting a unique design for the 20-inch wheels not currently available on other M6 models. Also like the recently released M6, key differences inside the M6 Gran Coupe include an M-exclusive steering wheel that has been completely redesigned from the 640i Gran Coupe and gets the signature red and blue stitching, a different shifter and bezel for the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission ,and we can also see that this M6 will be equipped with the Auto Stop-Start feature.

Keeping with the M6 similarities, power will almost certainly come from BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that is currently rated at 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. No word yet on pricing, but like the 640i Gran Coupe, the M6 Gran Coupe will likely be positioned between the M6 Coupe ($106,100) and M6 Convertible ($113,100). BMWBlog says that the M6 Gran Coupe will make its big debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show before going on sale next summer. To see full shots of the undisguised M6 Gran Coupe, head on over to Car Magazine.

      Coupes have 2 doors, not 4 doors.

        The sad part is that that there are people who will fall for this type of marketing ignorance. Next thing you know, a Mustang Shelby GT500 will be called a swift sedan or something stupid like that...

      Driving an M car in the snow is almost as pointless as building a M6 Gran Coupe in the first place.

        No its not. With good tires its just as fun as a WRX. I took my lowered LSB E46 M3 snowboarding all the time and it was great.

      What is with the front ends on these new BMWs? They used to make such nice looking cars, now it's just like "Oh, look, a generic European luxury car" I hate saying that, because I've always been such a big BMW fan, particularly the 6 series, but not this weird contraption.

      You got the wrong picture, AB -- this is clearly a sedan, not a coupe.

        BMW is actually calling it a Coupe. BMW again pisses me off. http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicles/6series/overview.html

      It will probably be heavier than the M5--- all these "4 dour coupes" are always heavier than their standard sedan cousins. WIll this have a synthesized engine soundtrack blaring on speakers as well?

      I like it. Wouldn't buy it, but I like it.

      still say this is the most unnecessary car. At least it'll be purty.

      Good looking car but too expensive. I'd be more than happy with the plebeian GC or better yet an S7.
