The standard vehicle is quite divisive. At least this version can speed away from the haters.
Judging by readers’ comments to the BMW 6 Series GT’s debut, there aren’t very many early fans of the German brand’s latest liftback model. X-Tomi Design has now reimagined the vehicle in M guise. Have the subtle tweaks made the design any better?
The fantasy M6 GT looks the part thanks to dark trim and a more aggressive front fascia with larger intakes. Deeper side sills and a carbon fibre roof are also among the updates. The natural choice for power would be the 4.4-litre biturbo V8 from the next-generation M5. The mill reportedly produces 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. A new version of BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system can send power entirely to the rear when the driver prefers. In the 5 Series, the powertrain allegedly gets the sedan to 100 kilometres per hour from a standstill in 3.5 seconds. An M6 GT probably wouldn’t be much slower.
BMW reportedly doesn’t intend to create a new M5 wagon, so an M6 GT would be the next best thing. The model features a hatch that opens and closes electrically. Inside, there’s 1,841 litres of cargo room with the rear seats down. Plus, a storage compartment in the trunk floor offers a space to store even more items.
The chances of BMW building an M6 GT are incredibly low – bordering on nonexistent.
