Four-door BMW M6 Gran Coupe Photos Leak

M6 Gran Coupe pics leak

BMW has had photos of its interesting four-door M6 Gran Coupe performance car leak. The car is a big and burly 560 hp four-door that is mostly attractive. The car will use a 4.4-liter V8 engine, which is the same engine used in the M5.

That engine will produce the previously mentioned 560 hp and 501 pound-foot of torque. The M6 Gran Coupe gets different mirrors, flared wheel arches, and bigger brakes compared to normal versions of the car. The roof of the vehicle is made from carbon fiber. Sadly, there is no option for manual transmission.

The vehicle only comes with a seven-speed automatic. That's about all we know about the vehicle now, it looks to be very large beast but with that much power on tap it should have decent performance.

What you missed on 10.22.14

Filed under: Concept Cars, LA Auto Show, Scion, Subaru 2015 Subaru Outback review The Subaru Outback strikes an interesting balance between the needs of the everyday crossover shopper and the wants of car enthusiasts. It's more of a tall wagon than a proper CUV, and even with its 2.5-liter boxer-four and continuously variable transmission, it's pretty nice to drive. Brandon Turkus explains in his review, here. Scion's LA Auto Show concep ...

The British May Be Coming: Jaguar Land Rover Considering U.S. Plant

Oct 22 2014 6:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Jaguar Land Rover wants to colonize South Carolina, or at least a few hundred acres of it, for its first-ever U.S. factory. The U.K.’s Sunday Times reports that the automaker has been “talking to several southern states, including South Carolina” about plans to open a facility that could churn out up to 200,000 cars per year. The Times said the Indian-owned British manufacturer also is considering sites in Mexico but “is thought to be leaning towards the southern states of the U.S. ...

BMW X4 M40i caught production-ready

Oct 22 2014 6:13pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Spy Photos, Performance, Crossover, BMW, Luxury It seems like BMW is pretty committed to this whole X4 thing. Aside from the current xDrive28i and xDrive35i, we've captured a round of spy photos showing what our spy shooters tell us is a more dynamic M40i model. The higher-performance hunchback follows in the footsteps of BMW's other sub-M cars like the M235i. In fact, much like the high ...

Filed under: Performance, Technology, Videos, BMW, Design/Style The wheels are one of the first things you notice when checking out the 2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe.

2014 BMW 328d Diesel Sedan Tested: Frugality Has Its Price

Oct 22 2014 3:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Of course you’re wondering, so we’ll just tell you up front: 39 mpg. That’s what we got over 522 miles of driving with the BMW 328d rear-drive sedan, which amounts to one fill-up. It’s also 4-mpg better than the 35 mpg we saw from two 2014 328ds, an xDrive sedan and our long-term xDrive wagon (through 25,000 miles, at least). READ MORE ›› ...

Weave Come So Far: BMW, Audi, and German Consortium Developing Carbon Fiber That’s 90 Percent Cheaper

Oct 22 2014 3:33pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

BMW and Audi want to cut carbon fiber production costs by up to 90 percent within six years—and they’re already halfway there. The two automakers, bolstered by funding from the German government and working with 86 other partners including Airbus and ZF, are part of a $102 million research consortium whose goal it is to make still-exotic carbon fiber more viable for mainstream manufacturing. By 2020, the group, dubbed MAI Carbon, hopes Germany will be the center of carbon ...

Oct 22 2014 2:33pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, BMW While BMW makes plenty of machinery to keep enthusiasts interested, its most enticing models are often based on more ordinary ones. That's what made the arrival of the i8 so captivating, emerging as the first stand-alone BMW sports coupe since the M1. But if its dual purpose - trying its best to both embrace the earth and traverse it rapidly - somehow left you disappointed, the next developme ...
