The current generation of the BMW M6 might be on its last legs, but the gorgeous high-performance Gran Coupe is still a head turner. Obviously, with father time catching up pretty quickly, the cosmetic upgrades are landing on these things in large numbers. For this owner, the idea was simple: clean it up and drop it down. The build is amplified thanks to a carefully chosen set of aftermarket ADV.1 Wheels that return this car into high relevance once again.
It all started with as stock BMW M6 Gran Coupe. This particular high-performance model from the Bavarian car maker comes with one of the best engines the company currently offers. The 4.4 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine in the BMW M6 delivers 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. By utilizing its Launch Control feature – letting your engine achieve maximum acceleration from a standing start – you can brandish every lb-ft right off the line, accelerating from 0 to 62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.3 seconds.
With an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h), it can keep up on both the street and the track with most of the today’s sports cars. For the most part, this gives one of the most appealing vehicles BMW has released in recent years with plenty of power and agility. A perfect foundation for an aftermarket build.
The most noticeable aspect of this build are the ADV5.2 Track Spec CS Series wheels. For many, these multispoke wheels are one of the best-designed wheels out there. Thanks to their lightweight, utmost perfect fitment, and a rather hefty price tag, they are also a highly coveted item for high-performance, supercar, and luxury car owners. The wheels installed on this M6 Gran Coupe are sized 21×10 and 21×11 in the front and rear, respectively. The Matte Black finish for the wheels keeps with the overall blacked out theme of the vehicle perfectly.
Additionally, this Gran Coupe is adorned with a carbon fiber front spoiler, a rear diffuser, and some tastefully done cosmetic touches. These include the gloss black side markers and kidney grilles, giving the M6 a clean look overall. The aftermarket performance exhaust gives the owner a better throttle response, additional horsepower, and torque, but most dominantly a much better exhaust sound note.
