The Bavarian brand did not release any information regarding the M version of the Gran Coupe, which itself, despite the confusing name, is a four-door sedan iteration of the 6-Series Coupe.

Nevertheless, we already know that the M6 Gran Coupe shares its powertrain with the two-door M6 models (coupe and convertible), meaning there's a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 553hp (560PS) delivered from 6,000 to 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 680Nm (501 lb-ft) from 1,750 to 5,750 rpm, lurking under the hood.

A 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) will transfer power to the rear wheels through BMW's Active M Differential, while the car also gets a new aero kit, a carbon fiber roof, 20–inch wheels and a revised chassis.

Among other publications that were at the Nürburgring event was Car Magazine, which also took some pictures and in the process, learned that BMW will unveil the M6 Gran Coupe online in December and in the flesh in January at the Detroit Motor Show.

The car is going to be gorgeous. Probably the best in the line-up. Also the most expensive M car.

What's the deal with the M6 having 4 doors?

It's the Gran Coupe version of the M6. BMW released a four door version of the six series to compete with the likes of the CLS,Panamera, and A7.

BMW in Greenwich, CT has a 650i xDrive Gran Coupe with an MSRP of $103K.
So imagine what an M6 Gran Coupe would cost.

Fucking Germans. LOL
