Once again BMW is advancing into a new vehicle segment with the introduction of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. Following the convertible and the Coupe in the BMW 6 Series, this new exclusive model is the true embodiment of aesthetics, sportiness, comfort and luxury in perfect form. The lean elegance of this vehicle, the very first four-door Coupe in the history of BMW, is truly an exceptional phenomenon.
Powerful engines and the advanced chassis technology contribute to a sporty and dynamic driving experience. The BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe is also distinguished by exclusive features and equipment, roominess for rear passenger comfort and remarkable advanced functionality that is unusual even for an upscale, four-door Coupe. For example, folding rear seatbacks and an auxiliary third seat are among the unique design features that contribute to the car’s versatility
Driving dynamics, smooth performance and efficiency are the hallmarks of the TwinPower Turbo engines available for the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. Furthermore, the BMW 650i Gran Coupe will be the first model offered with a new and more efficient V8 engine that delivers an impressive 330 kW/450 hp. This engine, just like the six cylinder power units in the BMW 640i Gran Coupe and the BMW 640d Gran Coupe, is offered as standard in conjunction with an eight-speed Sport automatic transmission and proven BMW EfficientDynamics technology. Standard equipment on all models also includes the Driving Experience button with ECO PRO Mode and the Auto Start Stop function.
At the front, chrome elements, unique to the Gran Coupe, separate the air intake from the fog lights, underlining the firm resolve expressed in the look of this car. The standard dual Xenon round headlights for high and low beams feature three dimensional LED rings that are typically BMW in appearance and which create a unique and functional light architecture for the night-time driving experience. With the optional Adaptive LED Headlights, the light rings are slightly flat at the top and bottom. High and low beams are generated with the LED units that are positioned on horizontal ribs across each of the light rings, projecting their light on the reflectors facing them.
The low and graceful lines of this automobile are especially impressive when looking at the side profile. The recessed passenger compartment appears low and smoothly stretched because the window silhouette extends deep into the C pillar. The frameless door windows are also a design element indicative of a sporty Coupe. In addition, the elongated side windows optimise the incidence of light to enhance the feeling of spaciousness in the interior. The characteristic Hofmeister kink that flows into the C pillar encompasses exclusively embossed “Gran Coupe” lettering behind the glass in the lower corners of the rear windows to denote the fascinating elegance and personality of this automobile.
