BMW Shows 6 Series Coupe in Action

True BMW fans have been expecting this for a while now! It’s not the M6 but its almost as good, as the Bavarian company has released four videos featuring the new 6-Series Coupe.

The videos show the 650i version, which features a V8 powerplant with turbochargers positioned between the cylinder banks develops maximum output of 407 hp. Also available will be a six-cylinder in-line engine in the form of the 640i Coupe, which has a total of 320 hp. Both engines are mated to the eight-speed Sports automatic gearbox as standard. Also fitted as standard is an extensive range of BMW EfficientDynamics technology, including the Auto Start-Stop function and ECO PRO mode (in the BMW 640i Coupe).

The performance and fuel consumption figures are even more impressive than the output ones, as the most powerful model available deals with the standard sprint in just 4.9 seconds and can reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), while burning through only 10.4l/100 km (27.2 mpg) on a combined run in the European test cycle.

Meanwhile, the six-pot in the 640i deals with the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint an a bit less brisk, but just as impressive 5.4 seconds, while averaging 7.7 liters per 100 kilometers (36.7 mph).

Among the systems fitted as standard are Brake Energy Regeneration, Electric Power Steering (EPS), the on-demand operation of ancillary components, intelligent lightweight construction and low-rolling-resistance tyres. The new BMW 640i Coupe is also fitted with automatic active air flap control and the Auto Start-Stop function.

We’re just glad that BMW’s new 6 is now a bit better looking than its predecessor!
