New BMW 6 Series Coupe Finally Revealed [VIDEOS]

BMW has finally revealed the new third-generation 6 Series Coupe. The new model is not just a facelift, as some people say, but a completely new car. Compared the previous second generation model it is 75mm longer, 39mm wider and 5mm lower – offering more interior space and a bigger boot.

Overall look is more aggressive and sportier than the previous model.

The new 6 Series Coupe will arrive at local showrooms in late summer, and from the launch will be offered with a choice of two turbocharged petrol engines: a 3.0 litre six-cylinder with 320bhp in the 640i and a 4.4 litre V8 with 400bhp in the 650i.

Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The 640i also gets a stop-start for added fuel savings.

The 640i coupe accelerates from 0-62mph in 5.4 seconds and the 650i coupe in 4.9 seconds. Average fuel economy is 36.7mpg and 27.2mpg respectively.

A 3.0 litre six-cylinder diesel will follow later in the 640d. A hardcore M6 with over 550bhp is also in development and will arrive in 2012.

The list of features is impressive, including: Lane Departure Warning, Active Blind Spot detection, Rear and Top View Cameras, a Parking Assistant, Night Vision, three-dimensional heads-up display, a 10.2-inch high-definition screen and much more.
