Shortly after spotting the BMW Gran Coupe out and about, our spy photographers have now gotten a look at the 4-door Coupe’s next variant, which adds the obligatory M-Sport package . This special model should debut just a few short months after the standard Gran Coupe and will likewise get a bump in price from the standard’s $75,000 price tag.
The standard Gran Coupe will be inspired by the Gran Coupe concept and will be built on the same platform as the 5-Series, meaning it will sit 4.4 inches longer than the 6-Series (116.8 vs 112.4). This wheelbase is also mated to a frame which is wider than the standard 5-Series (74.9in vs 73.2in). In addition, it is 2 inches longer (197.1 in) than its competitor, the Mercedes CLS. It will be powered by either a turbocharged Inline-6 developing 300 HP and 300 lbs/ft at 1400 rpm or a twin turbo V8 that puts out 400 HP and 450 lbs/ft at 1750 rpm.
As with all the other BMW models, the M-Sport package will add a bevy of accessories, including an M aerodynamic body styling package, 19-inch M light alloy wheels, dark chrome exhaust tailpipes, a High-gloss Shadowline exterior trim, and black brake calipers. For the interior, the Gran Coupe with the M-Sport package will see sport seats and an M Sport multi-function leather trimmed steering wheel.
