Bulgarian tuner Vilner doesn’t nearly get the love it deserves. But the company continues to produce some ridiculous programs over the years and this time around, it’s prepared something that it has described as its biggest project to date.
It’s also the first model Vilner has reworked completely, making it that much more significant in the eyes of a lot of people. It’s called the Bullshark, and it’s based on the second-generation BMW 6 Series Coupe and with a name that fits the billing, this bad-boy is one insane Bulgarian-tuned masterpiece.
The length by which Vilner reworked the model is evident by the fact that only the doors and the roof were kept stock. Everything else was changed, including a host of new aerodynamic components, all of which were made entirely from carbon fiber.
Inside, brown and beige accidents dominate the seats, which goes well with blue belts and matching stitching. Cowhide was the material of choice, further highlighting the exclusivity of the program, while the steering wheel, seats and gear shifter were also all rebuilt. Finally, an 11-speaker audio system was installed, which included a pair of amplifiers and a trunk-mounted subwoofer for a little extra boom.
Finally, an engine upgrade was also given to the 6er Coupe, resulting in a modest increase to the output of the car’s 4.4-liter, V-8 engine from 333 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque up to 370 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque. The improved numbers allow the Bullshark to hit 62 mph in just 5.4 seconds to go with a top speed of 173 mph.

Vilner didn’t go too far into what it did to the 6 Series Gran Coupe, but we can see that the hood and front fascia combine to form a pointier nose than before. We also see sharper front fenders with shark gills.
Around back, the quarters are modified, as is the trunk lid. Unfortunately, the image do not clearly present what exactly Vilner modified, but we’re sure that more details will roll out in due time. All we know is that these images present a bold and futuristic-looking 6 Series.
Introduced back in 2012, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe may be recognized as a 6 Series, but it also unique to its own, highlighted by a combination of top-class sporting dynamics, stunning design, and luxurious touring comfort.
However, compared to a standard 6 Series coupe, the new Gran Coupe version was built on a wheelbase that is 4.5 inches longer and its distinctive profile is dominated by its four-door, elegantly stretched roof line.
Power comes in the form of a TwinPower turbo 6-cylinder engine with an output of 315 horsepower at 5,800 to 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 330 pound-ft delivered between 1,300 and 4,500 rpm. The model will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds and will hit a top speed of 155 mph.
