BMW has released teaser pictures of the M6 Gran Coupe ahead of its Detroit Motor Show debut

Official teaser pictures of the four-door BMW M6 Gran Coupe have been released, ahead of its reveal at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2013.

It gets the same aggressive bodykit as the M6 Coupe and Convertible models, and will rival the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG and Audi S7 Sportback when it goes on sale towards the middle of next year.

Power will come from the same 552bhp 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 that powers the M5 and M6, and should be able to match the Coupe’s 0-62mph time of 4.3 seconds. Top speed will be limited to 155mph but an optional M Driver’s Package should increase this to around 190mph.

With a wheelbase that’s 113mm longer than the standard M6, the Gran Coupe will certainly be more family friendly thanks to the more spacious rear seats. And, unlike the two-door, you’ll be able to fold the rear seats down to increase boot space to 1,265 litres.

BMW hasn’t announced prices yet, but with the M6 Coupe starting from £93,820 it seems likely to carry a price-tag of around £96,000.
