The new BMW 6 Series Coupe is inspired by passion for aesthetics and dynamics

Munich - 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.

Captivating aesthetics, top-class performance, an exclusive interior and exceptionally innovative equipment features give the third-generation BMW 6 Series Coupe "dream car" its credentials.

A vehicle concept unparalleled in the premium segment, combining the dynamics of a 2+2-seater sports car with outstanding touring comfort; body length and wheelbase 75 millimetres longer than its predecessor for enhanced seating comfort of rear passengers; emphasised sporty appearance due to a 39-millimetre increase in vehicle width and a 5-millimetre reduction in height.

Market introduction will take place with three engine variants: BMW 650i Coupe with eight-cylinder power unit (300 kW/407 hp), BMW 640i Coupe with a six-cylinder in-line petrol engine (235 kW/320 hp), BMW 640d Coupe with a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine (230 kW/313 hp).

All engine variants are combined with an eight-speed Sport automatic transmission as standard equipment. BMW EfficientDynamics measures that have no peer in the segment (including Auto Start-Stop function and ECO PRO mode for the BMW 640i Coupe and BMW 640d Coupe). Optimised efficiency is combined with a significant 30 kW, 35 kW and 20 kW power increase over predecessor models (BMW 650i, BMW 640i and BMW 640d, respectively).

The BMW xDrive premieres in the BMW 6 Series: BMW 650i xDrive Coupe with optimised traction characteristics and outstanding sporty handling thanks to intelligent all-wheel drive. It's the only car in the segment available with Electric Power Steering and optional Integral Active Steering. Driving Experience Control comes as standard equipment, Dynamic Damper Control and Adaptive Drive are optional. It is the first car in the segment with Adaptive LED Headlights for low and high beam, including cornering function, fog lamps and rear lights also implemented with LED technology.
