I've always loved the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. Yes, sure, the BMW 5 Series is a fine sedan, but to me the 6 Gran Coupe is the most attractive modern BMW -- and maybe the most attractive new BMW sedan since the E39 5 Series went out of production after the 2003 model year. It's gorgeous. It's perfectly proportioned.

It's too expensive.

The 6 Series Gran Coupe, lovely as it is, has a starting price of around $83,000 for the base-level 640i model, compared to around $60,000 for the equivalent 5 Series. Given that price difference, and given the 640i's relatively similar sizing and technology, it's basically impossible to justify getting one over a 5 Series -- and that's probably the reason why 6 Series Gran Coupe sales have been relatively mediocre since it was released for the 2013 model year.

But, fellow 6 Gran Coupe fans, there's some good news. Used Gran Coupes are absolute bargains.

Yes, the Gran Coupe came out back in 2013, meaning the oldest ones are now six years old -- and even though they still look like the latest Gran Coupe, they're a lot cheaper. A LOT cheaper. Back in 2013, you couldn't get a 640i Gran Coupe, as the base model was the 650i Gran Coupe, which had a 4.4-liter V8 with 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, meaning 0-to-60 was something like 4.4 seconds. Right now, one of those 2013 models is easy to find for around $30,000. In fact, there are currently 103 different 2012 650i Gran Coupe models currently listed for sale on Autotrader, and 60 of them are under thirty grand.

And it gets better. Beginning in 2014, BMW also offered (and still offers) an "M6 Gran Coupe," with a twin-turbo V8 that made 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. These days, an M6 Gran Coupe starts at $121,000, making it the most expensive "M" car in the model range -- but 2014 models, with identical powertrains and styling to the new version, are easy to find for around $50,000 or less: there are currently 33 examples of the 2014 M6 Gran Coupe currently listed on Autotrader, with more than half available for under $50,000.

Indeed, if you've always admired the 6 Gran Coupe, as I have, but you've been put off by pricing, you should know that this vehicle has depreciated -- a lot. Get one with BMW's certified pre-owned warranty and you'll get a bargain on a gorgeous, desirable car, with the peace of mind that comes from a manufacturer-backed warranty.
