BMW reveals new 6 Series GT
BMW will now replace the 5 Series Gran Turismo with the new 6 Series Gran Turismo, which was unveiled ahead of its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 14.
The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo design embodies a rigorous process of development, which has elevated both the functional strengths of this concept and the car’s sense of sporting elegance. A generously-sized, flexible-use interior, striking looks, ride comfort, and a luxurious and spacious feel are amongst the features that make this vehicle unique.
Under the hood, the BMW 6 Series GT is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line gasoline engine that generates a maximum output of 335 hp and puts peak torque of 332 lb-ft on tap between 1,380 and 5,200, and provides a sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds.
The six-cylinder TwinTurbo engine for the 640i xDrive GT has been selected from the latest generation of the BMW Group portfolio and is paired to the 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles, and optimized aerodynamics. Its weight-saving construction makes the 6 Series GT a sporting performer with the highest level of efficiency.
The standard Sport design shines the spotlight on the car’s dynamic character and stands out with numerous trim elements in high-gloss black and 19-inch V-Spoke light-alloy wheels. Chrome window surround enhances the sporty character of the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo.
On the interior, the driver and front passenger are welcomed by standard Sport Seats with power adjustable side bolsters, an Anthracite headliner, and a SensaTec upholstered dashboard.
The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo comes standard with Dakota leather upholstery, which can be specified in a range of different colors. The optional Nappa leather with decorative quilting pattern is available in three colors – Ivory White, Black and Mocha.
Precisely formed, seamlessly fitting surfaces and meticulously incorporated chrome trim elements highlight the exclusive character of the interior. The contour of the interior trim strips in the door panels traces the elegant flow of the roofline. Electrically operated sunshades for the rear side windows can be added as an option.
Two non-metallic and 10 metallic color shades are available for the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. Customers can choose from a total of 3 different light-alloy wheels (19-inch and 20-inch). The Original BMW Accessories range also includes 21-inch light-alloy rims.
