The 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is available as a 4-door sedan in one very well-equipped trim level.
Standard features include 20-in wheels, an electronically adjustable sport-tuned suspension with a limited-slip rear differential, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, adaptive cruise control, a carbon-fiber roof, keyless entry/ignition, leather upholstery, M-specific front sport seats with heating and memory settings, a power-adjustable steering column, carbon-fiber cabin trim, Bluetooth and the iDrive infotainment system with a 10.2-in widescreen display, a rearview camera, a navigation system and a surround-sound audio system with iPod/USB connectivity.
In case that's not enough, BMW will be happy to outfit your M6 Gran Coupe with a tempting array of options. The Competition package adds 15 hp, a lowered suspension with even sportier settings, lighter-weight 20-in wheels and black chrome exhaust tips. The Executive package contributes a power rear sunshade with manual rear-side sunshades, full LED lights, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, active ventilated front seats with real-time cornering adjustments, heated rear seats and automatic headlights. Standalone options include carbon ceramic brakes, an Alcantara headliner and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.
Due to the Gran Coupe's rakish profile, passenger space suffers relative to the upright M5, but you can still fit two good-sized adults in the backseat (forget about three, though). Standard folding rear seat backs enhance the Gran Coupe's modest trunk capacity of 12 cu ft.

BMW M5 -- The obvious counterpoint to the M6 Gran Coupe is its more conventional sibling, the 5-Series-based M5 sedan.
Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG -- The big bad Benz boasts standard all-wheel drive for 2014, as well as a twin-turbocharged V8 of its own that feels even torquier than the BMW motor.
Audi S6 -- Despite its twin-turbo V8, the S6 isn't quite in the M6 Gran Coupe's performance league, but it's incredibly well-rounded and pretty attractive in its own right.
