BMW 645ci Sport Coupe--D&M Motorsports Video Walk Around 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. An in-depth walk around presentation of a 2004 BMW 645ci Coupe with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports.
Ever since the last 635CSi rolled off the production line in 1989, BMW fans have wondered how long it would be before the automaker revived one of its most popular GT coupes. The later 8 Series coupes, sold in the U.S. from 1991 to 1997, were fast and pretty, too. But they also were heavy, with no real rear legroom, and expensive. The new 645Ci melds the flavor of both previous models, adding heavy doses of the company's current technology and design language. Sharing architecture with the new 5 Series sedan, it's taller and has a greater overall length than the old 8 Series, with a wheelbase nearly five inches longer.
The 645Ci is powered by a throaty, responsive 4.4-liter, 333-horsepower V-8, with 332 pound-feet of torque available at 3600 rpm. That's more horsepower than the old 8 Series' 5.4-liter V-12 and almost as much torque.
In a hurry? How about 0-to-60 in a BMW-estimated 5.4 seconds? This car makes you want to risk getting a ticket every day of the week.
There are three six-speed transmission choices: a Steptronic automatic, a sequential-manual gearbox, and a flawless manual. For those who enjoy a stick but don't want to deal with a clutch, the 645's SMG will gladly take care of the work and do an excellent job of it.

As is the case with BMWs, the fully independent suspension absorbs bumps and inconsistencies without detaching the driver from the feel of the road, and the 6 holds on for dear life during aggressive cornering. The aluminum-intensive, rear-drive Ci has a near-50/50 weight distribution and a wide track and packs all the electronic acronyms you can stomach (DSC, CBC, ASC), all of which Boosts its stellar handling ability.
About the styling: While the direction BMW is taking doesn't appeal to everyone, the 6 Series is eye candy from most angles. The 7 Series-like creased trunklid still takes getting used to, but, overall, this muscular two-door looks good. Inside, the cabin design and materials lend a sophisticated, sporty, and luxurious air. The front seats are comfortable for long drives, and, unlike the old 8, the rear seats are useable, at least for shorter jaunts.
While the new 645Ci differs significantly from its forebears, it won't disappoint BMW 6/8 Series fans and will spark the interest of those who want a superbly executed luxury sport coupe. It's a glorious car, one that excels for high-speed straightaway work and winding through canyons. It makes us wonder what they have in mind for the M version
Luckily, BMW had the foresight not to incorporate the top's operation into the car's overly complicated iDrive system; the fully lined top is power-operated by a console-mounted button, lowering in 24 seconds. This rather trick lid is windowless, allowing the designers to integrate the glass into the rear deck, directly aft the headrests and completely independent of the top so the vertical window can be deployed as a wind deflector when the top is down, or, with top up, the glass can be lowered to increase pass-through ventilation for the cabin. Rear window operation is controlled from the driver's door-mounted switches, which can be programmed to lower or raise all five windows simultaneously using a single switch.
Powered by the same brawny 4.4-liter, 325-horsepower V-8 as in the coupe, the convertible is offered with a choice of six-speed manual, six-speed automatic, or six-speed sequential-manual gearboxes. Power comes on strong, fast, and smooth, and the engine emits a satisfying burble, an aural reminder that BMW continues to build some of the best powerplants in the business. Although the convertible weighs about 400 pounds more than the coupe, due to its structural reinforcements and folding-top mechanisms, our six-speed manual-equipped tester still managed a dash to 60 in an impressive 5.6 seconds. This is only a tenth of a second behind the last automatic-equipped Porsche 911 Cabriolet we tested (August 2002).
BMW's Active Roll Stabilization is standard on the 6 Series and helps hustle the convertible through the slalom at 64.5 mph, beating Cadillac's XLR and Lexus's SC 430, but falling behind Mercedes's SL500 and Maserati's Spyder. Vented, 13.7-inch two-piece iron and aluminum brake rotors help the two-ton-plus convertible stop from 60 in only 112 feet.
