BMW expands the 6 Series range to three models in June 2012 with the introduction of the Gran Coupé. BMW's first four-door coupé combines the elegant and sporty appearance of a classic grand tourer with the space and ease of access of an executive saloon.
A new 450hp V8 heads a range of three TwinPower turbo engines, which also includes six-cylinder petrol and six-cylinder diesel powerplants. 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 presentation of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe sees BMW venturing into a
new vehicle segment once again. The third model in the BMW 6 Series line-up
follows in the tyre tracks of the Convertible and Coupe, and is the first

impressively dynamic driving experience. And the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

practicality unmatched by its premium four-door Coupe rivals.

The Gran Coupe is the fruition of the BMW CS Concept, a vehicle that was
intended to slot at the top of BMW's lineup alongside the 7-Series flagship
sedan. The CS Concept never made it to production due to the worsening
economy in 2008, which also saw the retirement of BMW M development
executive Gerhard Richter. Pricing for the BMW 640i Gran Coupe is
slightly more than the BMW 740i. The Gran Coupe competes with the Audi
A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class in the four-door executive coupé
market. However, the Gran Coupe is larger and more expensive than the
CLS and A7 and is priced close to the Porsche Panamera.
Before the Gran Coupe, the closest rivals to the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz
CLS in BMW's current lineup were the BMW X6 (2009--present) and the BMW 5
Series Gran Turismo (F07) (2010--present), both of which combine four doors
with coupe-like features such as frame-less doors and a sloping rear
roof. The 5 Series GT, positioned more for utility with its bi-modal
trunk/hatchback, was criticized for its aesthetics in comparison to its
sleeker rivals and did not sell as well as BMW executives had
The Gran Coupe shares the front and rear fascias with the other 6 Series
body styles. Compared to the two door 6 Series coupé, the Gran Coupe's
wheelbase is longer by stretched 4.5 inches while the body is 4.4 inches
longer. This makes the Gran Coupe longer (by 4.0 inches) and wider (by 1.3
inches) than the BMW 5 Series sedan (F10). The extra length, compared
to the two-door 6 Series, gives the Gran Coupe a 4+1 seating arrangement,
as the rear has two fullsize outboard seats and a middle seat for
occasional passengers. The Gran Coupe has a different center console though
its dashboard is shared with the Coupé and Cabriolet.
The new model is based on the BMW F12/F13 and shares its 7-speed M-DCT
gearbox, BMW N63#S63 Twinturbo V8 engine
and other technology with the BMW M5 (F10). The M6 coupé has a
carbon-fiber roof and other weight saving measures, making it 20 kg (44 lb)
lighter than the M5, however it is 140 kg (309 lb) heavier than the
previous M6. The M6 convertible is 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the previous
The official performance figures claim acceleration from 0--100 km/h (0--62
mph) in 4.2 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h
(155 mph) without the M Driver's Package (allows it to run up to 315 km/h)
. The design style is similar to all recent M cars. The front of the car
has a newly designed M kidney grille with an "M6" badge -- a homage to the
first generation M6.
6 Series Gran Coupe was unveiled in 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Early models
include 640i, 640d, 650i, 650 xDrive.
Chinese models were unveiled in Auto China 2012. Early Chinese models
include 640i, 650i, 650i xDrive.
The BMW 6 Series is a range of executive coupés produced by the German
The first was the E24, being derived from the E12 & E28 5 Series 4-door
sedans. The E24 launched in 1976 to replace the 3.0CS & 3.0CSi (E9). 14
years later, in 2003, BMW released the all new E63/E64 which was available
as a coupé and convertible, based on the chassis of the E60 5 Series
sedan. Models were the 645Ci (later replaced with the 650i) and the 630i,
while the highest performance model is the BMW M6. The third generation F12
and F13 6 series was released in 2011 for the 2012 model year, sharing a
platform and some engines with the 7 Series (F01) and 5 Series (F10), and
introducing a four-door coupé (fastback sedan) style.
The BMW 8 series is sometimes regarded as the spiritual successor to the
E24 6 Series, being also available as a "CSi", however it had a
substantially higher price point and performance than the preceding 6
