AutoExpress test drives and compares the BMW M6 Gran Coupe against the Audi RS7.
Both are powered by turbocharged V8 engines and have over 500 bhp -but do they really justify their nearly £100,000 price tags?
In the UK, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe costs just under £98,000 and features a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 552bhp and 680Nm of torque. It sprints from 0-60 in just 4.2 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 155mph.
Before jumping into the video, here is what AutoExpress had to say about the driving experience:
So, what’s the Audi like to drive? Well, the first thing is that it’s so hard to use the performance on the road – it’s just so fast that it’s impossible to put it into use.The one thing the Audi does have is quattro all-wheel drive and a clever sport differential – that means it doesn’t have any of the traction issues that you get in the M6, and it doesn’t work it’s stability control as hard. There’s lots of grip, but the problem is it’s just a bit inert – there’s not a lot of feel in the steering.Also, the suspension is a bit odd. The ride isn’t great – in fact it’s pretty awful – and all in all it’s not a particularly engaging car despite its speed. It’s quite hard to love this car despite the fact that the engine is so great.
