- PRESS RELEASE
BMW Group has confirmed that customers in the Middle East can now purchase the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé with a second engine variant - the BMW 650i. Having arrived in the region earlier this year, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé has been turning heads with its combination of sporting aesthetics and performance with the functionality of a four-door saloon.
Performance and technology have always been key areas of expertise for the BMW brand and the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé is no exception.
In addition to the BMW 640i Gran Coupé, which has been available since launch, customers can now opt for the 650i variant with the latest generation V8 BMW TwinPower Turbo engine.
Optimising both efficiency and response, this 4.4-litre engine produces 450hp and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.
Power in both engines is managed by an eight-speed sports automatic transmission. With its extremely fast gear changes, this unit is built for sporty driving, comfortable shifting and optimised efficiency. It is operated using the electronic gear selector on the centre console.
The Driving Experience Control switch on the centre console allows the driver to alter accelerator response characteristics, engine response, the power steering characteristics, the DSC settings, the damper characteristics and the shift characteristics of the automatic transmission.
The interior design creates a harmonious link between the front seats and the rear, and embodies the perfect combination of elegance and dynamics. The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé boasts Dakota leather upholstery and heated front seats, electric seat adjustment with memory function for the driver and front passenger, 2-zone automatic climate control with extended features, automatically dimming exterior and rear-view mirrors, electric steering wheel adjustment, and the Radio Professional with HiFi loudspeaker system and USB audio interface.
The interior has a driver orientation typical of the BMW brand. The driver-focused cockpit and front passenger area are bordered by elegantly sweeping surfaces with a harmonious connection between the front seats and the rear.
Passengers sitting in the rear will be surprised by the generous levels of space and high level of comfort in a very stylish and luxurious surrounding. The four-door Coupé is a four-seater that offers generous travel comfort in the back with an additional third rear seat which can be used for shorter journeys.
The new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe also has a range of BMW ConnectedDrive features that give the driver and passengers information and services to help make their driving experience safer and more comfortable.
The new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé 650i and 640i are available at BMW Group showrooms across the Middle East.
