WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — The 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe, which goes on sale early next summer, debuted on Wednesday with the most powerful engine ever stuffed into an M production car.

The five-passenger M6 Gran Coupe is equipped with a 560-horsepower 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine linked to a seven-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission. The M6 Gran Coupe targets the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG and the Porsche Panamera Turbo.

BMW said U.S. pricing, final technical specifications and EPA fuel-economy estimates will be released closer to the car's on-sale date. In comparison, the 2013 BMW M6 Coupe starts at $108,295, including an $895 destination charge and a $1,300 gas-guzzler tax.

BMW said the M6 Gran Coupe sprints from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.

Drivers can select from three settings for the M-specific speed-sensitive hydraulic power steering. The modes include Comfort, Sport and Sports Plus, the lowest level of steering boost that can be selected.

The M6 Gran Coupe can be ordered with optional M carbon-ceramic brakes. Other details include 20-inch forged light alloy wheels with ultra-high performance summer tires and optional adaptive LED headlights.

The M6 Gran Coupe is defined by a low roof line, flared wheel arches and a carbon fiber-composite roof panel. The cabin has a bit of a retro look with classic circular gauges with red needles.

An M Drive system lets the driver opt for a track-focused setup with all driver aids shut off, BMW noted.

Edmunds says: While pricing hasn't been announced, the expectation is that the BMW M6 Gran Coupe will carry at least a $10,000-$15,000 premium over the M6 Coupe.
