The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo made its public debut at Frankfurt’s International Motor Show (IAA) in September 2017 with the initial market launch starting November this year. The 6 Series GT will have a choice of three engines from the BMW Group’s latest generation of power units.
A combination of intelligent lightweight engineering and increased use of aluminium and high-strength steel grades for body and chassis components has shaved an average of around 150 kilograms off the weight of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo compared to the outgoing model, making It lighter, sportier and more efficient. The latest model has increased power, efficiency and new sport features including the function to be lowered by 10 millimetres at the click of a button or simply by selecting SPORT mode. Depending on the engine variant, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is completed up to 0.7 seconds quicker (BMW 630i Gran Turismo) than in the equivalent predecessor model, while fuel consumption and emissions figures in the NEDC test cycle are as much as 15 per cent lower (BMW 640i Gran Turismo, BMW 630d Gran Turismo).
The interior is also made more comfortable with raised seating meaning an optimal all-round view and driving pleasure. The rear compartment of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo comprises three full-size seats offering maximised legroom. Exhaustive optimisation of the cabin’s packaging sees the new model’s far flatter roof line still translating into extra headroom, while the restyled rear seat unit and improved soundproofing make it even more comfortable to travel in.
