G-Power powers up the mighty BMW M6 Gran Coupe

September 18, 2014

Popular German car tuner and BMW specialist G-Power has announced a tuning program for the mighty BMW M6 Gran Coupe. It brings serious power upgrades and some styling tweaks to the sleek four-door coupe.

Starting with the engine. In standard form the M6 comes with a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 412kW of power and 680Nm of torque. Thanks to a new engine computer module and a higher-flowing titanium exhaust system, outputs are lifted to a mind-blowing 544kW and 975Nm.

G-Power says these changes help the M6 cover 0-200km/h in 10.5 seconds, with a top speed of over 300km/h. Times for 0-100km/h haven’t been mentioned, however, we’ve timed the standard M6 Gran Coupe in 4.2 seconds so you can imagine what it would do with an extra 132kW on tap.

Other aspects of the car are enhanced to keep up with the high tempo nature of the new engine tune. G-Power provides a set of 21-inch Hurricane RR forged alloy wheels. These hide 420mm ceramic front brakes with unique six-piston calipers.

To make sure the M6 handles the power there is a custom GM6-RS coil-over suspension package which is completely adjustable, with nine different settings for bound and rebound.

Inside, owners can opt for a new steering wheel, special carbon leather, lots of soft Alcantara, and the installation of iPads in the backs of the front seats if one so desires. There’s also some G-Power logos scattered through the cabin for an exclusive touch.

As for prices, G-Power offers the engine tune from 16,424 euros, the wheel package for 7649 euros, the suspension kit for 2570 euros, and the ceramic brakes for 14,460 euros. All in all these components give the M6 a subtle yet brutally powerful transformation.
