Details have emerged of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, which the Munich company says sets a new level of comfort and elegance wrapped in a sporty coupé design, with superior driving dynamics and efficiency.
This new model, which takes over from the 5 Series Gran Turismo — never a favourite in these quarters — gets a new designation to reflect the major step forward over its predecessor.
Set to make its world premiere at the IAA show in Frankfurt in September, the 6 Series Gran Turismo will make its market launch on November 11.
Initially, it will be offered with a choice of three engines, while the BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system will be available in two of the three variants in the model line-up.
The large GT, a vehicle concept blending the luxury of a comfortable saloon with coupé looks, was launched in 2009. Called the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, the model was a game changer, delivering comfort and elegance, but practicality too. The 6 Series Gran Turismo takes these characteristics so enjoyed by 5 Series GT customers to another level.
