It’s the four-door coupé version of BMW’s M6, which will debut at the NAIAS Detroit Motor Show in January. Powered by the same 552bhp twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine as the M6 Coupé, M6 Cabrio and M5 Saloon, BMW now offer a 5/6 Series-based M car in every format except a Touring version.
During the past few days, several images have leaked onto the internet of the ‘M’ version of BMW’s 4-door Gran Coupe – the car was originally shown to a private audience at the Nurburgring celebrating 40 Years of ‘M’.

BMW has unveiled their Concept M135i at Geneva this morning, showcasing its new 3-door 1 Series design and the first six-cylinder petrol engine M Performance model.
Don’t get bogged down in the name – M135i – or try and correlate its powerplant with that of the previous generation 1 M. This is a straight six twin-turbocharged 1 Series from the new BMW M Performance range, that recently brought us the M550d and M50d X6/X5.
What is the BMW M6? A more focused and sporty M5? A rival for Porsche’s 911? Or, perhaps a working man’s Aston Martin? In some ways it could be all of those things, but equally none of them.
In what will be seen as the most controversial move yet by the German manufacturer, BMW has unveiled 4 new M models – all of them powered by diesel engines. In a subtle play on words BMW have named the range, BMW M Performance Models, distinguishing oh-so-subtly from their core BMW M Models such as the M5, M3, 1M and soon-to-be-launched M6.
