BMW launched their latest M6 Gran Coupe in India for 1.71 crore. The car was launched at BMW’s first M Studio, Infinity Cars in Mumbai. This is the first BMW showroom in the country which is dedicated to retail the 'M' or the performance versions of their cars. Next in line of the BMW’s M versions are the X5 M and X6 M which are scheduled to be launched later this month. The M6 will be a CBU unit and will be sold out of the M studios in the country.

This enables the launch control equipped bimmer to achieve 100 kmph from a standstill in just 4.2 seconds and go all the way up to a limited 250 Kmph. All this with a fuel economy of 10.1 Km/l and 232 g/km of CO2 emissions. The car also has two M Drive buttons on the steering wheel for sport and comfort configurations.
