Everything in the BMW M6 Gran Coupé is geared towards one thing: the driver. Perfect ergonomics have always been one of the outstanding features of M vehicles. It's a philosophy that is consistently extended and optimised in this sporty five-seater.

Every switch and button is precisely where you'd expect to find it. After all, response time and control are what counts, both on the race circuit and on the road.


Active Protection uses Attentiveness assist to monitor the driver for signs of fatigue. In dangerous situations it pretensions the front seat belts, moves the front passenger seat into an upright position and closes the side windows.

After a collision, the brakes are automatically applied to prevent or reduce the impact of follow-on collisions.

Every M car meets high standards of passive safety thanks to the use of carefully selected materials and a highly rigid structure. This is combined with a very efficient restraint system designed in accordance with crash tests carried out by respected independent institutions – so passengers can count on the best possible protection.


Adaptive LED headlights are characterised by light distribution that automatically adjusts to the driving speed, dynamically illuminating the road ahead.

Along with side lights and daytime running lights, it includes the adaptive headlight function with variable city and highway light distribution, cornering lights, as well as BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle High-beam assist) with automatic high-beam and low-beam functions. That allows the system to offer optimal road illumination under all conditions.

In the dark, the moveable headlights allow the driver to see far into curves as soon as the wheel is turned. To improve short-range visibility, the cornering lights are automatically activated as soon as the turn indicator is switched on or the steering wheel is turned – even when the vehicle is at a standstill. The adaptive headlights ensure optimum illumination on the road, significantly increasing active safety. BMW Selective Beam allows the driver to leave the high-beams on constantly, facilitating optimal visual conditions at night. The system monitors the presence of vehicles in front or oncoming traffic and continuously adjusts the high-beam lights to avoid dazzling other road users.
