There are only a few days to go before BMW adds a third model to its 6 Series range.
This June will see the arrival of the new Gran Coupé to the range, BMW’s first four-door coupé. It is a new grand tourer with the space and ease of access of an executive saloon.
To propel this new BMW are a choice of three engines. At the top of range is a new 450hp V8 TwinPower Turbo engine but if you prefer a little less power then you can choose from a six-cylinder petrol or six-cylinder diesel powerplant!
All three engines drive through an eight-speed automatic transmission and come with the full suite of EfficientDynamics technologies, including Auto Start-Stop, ensuring highly responsive performance goes hand-in-hand with low fuel consumption and emissions. Extensive use of aluminium in the body and chassis reduces weight and ensures that the 6 Series Gran Coupé has the agility and precision expected of a BMW.
The 6 Series has always been a favourite of ours, especially after we tried the 650i Convertible (thank you again BMW USA!) and this new Gran Coupé certainly has presence. We’ve yet to see it in the flesh but if the drives as good as these photos look then it wont disappoint.
