Prior Design BMW M6 Gran Coupe Shapes Up

While many people (ourselves included) question the need for a four-door version of a coupe that’s based on a four-door sedan, BMW seems pretty committed to the concept, having recently revealed a 4 Series Gran Coupe to go with the 6 Series Gran Coupe. And it’s not like the 6 Series Gran Coupe is a bad car or anything; it looks fantastic (by modern BMW standards, anyway), and it performs quite well, particularly in M6 guise.

Of course, Prior Design has never been a company to get hung up on a vehicle’s apparent redundancy (or lack thereof) within its maker’s product portfolio, so it didn’t waste any time cooking up its own take on the M6 Gran Coupe. This particular 2-plus-2-door motorcar features a new variant of Prior Design’s PD6XX widebody kit (designed to fit the Gran Coupe) with flared fenders, a vented hood and a subdued rear spoiler. An H&R suspension kit and 20” ADV1 wheels finished in bronze provide an altitude and attitude adjustment, respectively, while upgrades to the 4.4L twin-turbo V8 lift peak output to 651 horsepower and 605 lb.-ft of torque.

The transformation continues inside, with vast quantities of brown and black leather and black Alcantara applied to the seats, door panels, console, and more. There’s even a matching child booster seat in the back! Of course, if you had a ride this fly, would you really want to use it to cart around a rugrat?
