- PRESS RELEASE
The new third generation BMW M6 Coupé is joining the recently launched Convertible in the Middle East, seven years after BMW M GmbH first added the high performance sports car to its portfolio.
Launched in 2005, the first M6 instantly became the epitome of a highly prestigious breed of top-performance automobiles brimming with motor racing know-how. The latest generation models are the highest performing in the 6 Series range and occupy an exclusive position in the premium segment thanks to a unique combination of outstanding dynamics, hallmark M model harmony and everyday practicality.
Under the bonnet of the new BMW M6 Coupé and the recently launched Convertible, BMW's motor sport technology ensures that the models raise the bar in performance both on and off the race track. Their dynamic character is defined by mid-range agility, precision when accelerating and precise handling.
The M experience runs through the veins of the models engines. These high performance sports cars exude excellence and are unmatched within the premium segment of the executive class. The interplay of the high-revving 4.4 litre V8 engines and M TwinPower Turbo technology is accompanied by a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic, Active M Differential and model-specific chassis technology, all of which ensure you get the drive of your life.
These 560 hp high-performance sports cars offer fuel efficiency which is unmatched by rivals. The new BMW M6 Coupé records average fuel consumption of 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres (28.5 mpg imp) and the BMW M6 Convertible records 10.3 l/100 km (27.4 mpg imp) and 239 g/km, meaning that emissions have been reduced by over 30 per cent in both models compared with their predecessors.
On the exterior, classical proportions and the sporty yet elegant lines of the BMW 6 Series form the foundations for the striking body of the BMW M6 Coupé and Convertible. The Convertible boasts exclusive looks underlined by the "fin" architecture of the soft-top roof, whilst the Coupé shows off a strikingly contoured roof made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic. Even when standing still with the soft-top open or closed, the BMW M6 Convertible turns heads whilst the BMW M6 Coupé demonstrates its exceptional power capacity through striking features and impactful lines.
Exterior features include the standard-fitted Adaptive LED Headlights that accentuate the models progressive character, whilst hallmark M styling cues add detail to the bodywork and highlight their performance attributes. Both the Coupé and the Convertible boast head-turning 19-inch M light-alloy wheels featuring seven double spokes with unique two-tone finish, while the optional 20-inch M light-alloy wheels look more refined with their five intricate double spokes.
Inside the cockpit of the BMW M6 Convertible and Coupé ground-breaking ergonomic design guarantees perfect mastery of the vehicle in every situation. Advanced equipment comes as standard in both models. Features include the 2-zone automatic climate control, heated seats with fine-grain Merino leather trim seats for maximum comfort, exclusive carbon-fibre interior trim strips, door sill strips with "M6" lettering, automatically dimming rear-view mirror and exterior mirrors, Cruise Control with braking and the BMW Professional radio with HiFi loudspeakers for the ultimate audio experience.
At the heart of the luxuriously sporty interior of the new models lies an unrivalled selection of technology that adds depth to the driving experience. From the instrument cluster with black-panel technology and white illumination, to the M Drive buttons positioned next to the centre console allowing the driver to select their preferred driving settings at a touch of a button - these high performance sports cars take BMW's in-car technology to pole position.
When it comes to BMW ConnectedDrive assistance technology, the BMW M6 Convertible and Coupé boast an impressive range of features which, when combined, enhance comfort and safety. Technologies include BMW Park Assistant, High Beam Assistant, Lane Change Warning, and Lane Departure Warning.
Almost all BMW 6 Series equipment options are available for the BMW M6 Coupé and Convertible, including Comfort Access, active seats, doors with Soft Close Automatic function, navigation system Professional and the Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System.
