The hearts of sports car aficionados with an eye for luxury and innovative technology will beat a little faster at the sight of the new BMW 6 Series Coupe. With the third generation of this top-class coupe, premium carmaker BMW adds another chapter to its decade-long tradition in the production of exclusive dream cars. The new BMW 6 Series Coupe impresses with its irresistible design and inspires with even sharper driving dynamics than its predecessor, noticeably optimised by virtue of its comfort features and added space. In its own attractive manner, it combines superior sportiness with exclusive touring comfort and 460 litres of luggage space.
BMW TwinPower Turbo technology provides for both sporty power development and exceptional efficiency of the engines available at market introduction. The high-performance V8 power unit in the BMW 650i Coupe produces 300 kW/407 hp. The six-cylinder in-line petrol engine in the BMW 640i Coupe develops 235 kW/320 hp. The BMW 640d Coupe is powered by a new six-cylinder in-line diesel engine delivering 230 kW/313 hp. All of these engines are combined with an eight-speed Sport automatic transmission as standard equipment. Also part of the standard equipment is an extensive range of BMW EfficientDynamics measures, including the Auto Start-Stop function and ECO PRO mode (in the BMW 640i Coupe and BMW 640d Coupe). For the first time in the BMW 6 Series, the BMW 650i Coupe can also be equipped with BMW xDrive, the intelligent four-wheel drive system.
The new BMW 6 Series Coupe strikes an ideal balance between dynamic handling and ride comfort thanks to its newly developed chassis. Its standard Electric Power Steering is as unique in this segment, as is the optional Integral Active Steering. Optional features include Dynamic Damper Control and the Adaptive Drive system, complete with roll stabilisation. Driving Experience Control for individual vehicle tuning is included as standard equipment.
Adaptive LED Headlights are offered as an option for the new BMW 6 Series Coupe. Unique in this segment are the driver assistance systems and the mobility services associated with BMW ConnectedDrive. They include the new generation of BMW Head-Up Displays which present comprehensive, full colour spectrum graphics. The Control Display for the standard BMW iDrive control system is implemented as a free standing, fixed position flatscreen. The optional Bang & Olufsen high-end surround sound system produces exceptionally pleasurable tone quality.
Once again, the grand coupe with the BMW brand embodies the essence of dynamic capability and exclusive driving pleasure in a stylish and luxurious two-door vehicle. The new BMW 6 Series Coupe represents the latest chapter in a story which now stretches back more than 70 years, a heritage enriched by legendary motor racing glories and numerous icons of automotive design.
The new BMW 6 Series Coupe is being built alongside the new BMW 6 Series Convertible at BMW’s Dingolfing plant. This production plant, the largest in the BMW Group, also produces the BMW 7 Series and BMW 5 Series. Flexible and efficient manufacturing processes at this plant combine state-of-the-art production technology with a quality standard based on the highest precision craftsmanship to build exclusive premium vehicles.
