BMW’s All-New 6-Series Gran Coupé Breaks Cover!

BMW first showed off its Gran Coupé Concept; an elegant 4-door Saloon under the skin of a stretched 6-Series Coupé at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show. Back then, the Bavarian manufacturer took everyone by surprise with its sporty yet elegant silhouette and a stunning overall design. A couple of years down the line, BMW is now ready with the 2013 6-Series Gran Coupé (pictured here).

Based heavily on the current 6-Series, the Gran Coupé trim adds two extra doors and a proper rear seat besides a big 460-litre boot; all thanks to a stretched wheelbase. Mechanically, this new Saloon shares nearly everything with the 6-Series Coupe and uses a few bits off the 5-Series as well. Thanks to those roots, the Gran Coupé could may well get quite a lot of engine options. The ones that are sure to find its way under the hood are a couple of turbo-charged motors. Powering the 640i will be a 3.0-litre turbo-charged inline 6-cylinder producing around 310Hp and a massive 450nm of Torque. The higher-spec 650i version on the other hand will get a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8. The big muscle block churns out over 440Hp and 650nm of Torque. BMW’s 8-speed ZF Auto ‘Box will be standard on both the 640i and 650i. However, the latter will come with a choice of all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive.

The Gran Coupé will make its debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show or in March at the Geneva Motor Show. Prices have not yet been announced, but expect prices beyond Rs 70Lakh for this fast, super sleek Saloon. As they say, good things never come cheap!
