BMW 6 Series Coupe at the Tokyo Motor Show
A passion for aesthetics and dynamics: The new BMW 6 Series Coupé.
The new BMW 6 Series Coupé is a sports car that is sure to satisfy even the most dedicated fans of beauty, luxury and innovative technology in an automobile. The third generation of this luxury-class coupé continues premium carmaker BMW’s decades-old tradition of building exclusive dream cars.
The new BMW 6 Series Coupé mates irresistible design with driving dynamics that once again mark an advance over the previous model, as well as further improvements in comfort and increased interior space. This model is an extremely attractive blend of upscale, sporty design and exclusive touring comfort. For example, the boot can accommodate 460 litres of luggage.
BMW TwinPower Turbo engines combine sporty power delivery with outstanding efficiency. The V8 petrol engine of the BMW 650i Coupé and the six-cylinder in-line petrol engine of the BMW 640i Coupé develop maximum power of 300 kW/407 hp and 235 kW/320 hp respectively.
Both engines are combined with an eight-speed sports automatic transmission. Also standard on the BMW 640i Coupé is an extensive BMW EfficientDynamics technology package that includes Auto Start-Stop and ECO PRO mode.
The BMW 650i Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds, while the BMW 640i Coupé does the same sprint in 5.8 seconds.
The new BMW 6 Series Coupé’s newly developed chassis strikes an ideal balance between dynamics and comfort.
The standard electromechanical power steering and optional Integral Active Steering both break new ground in this segment. Also on the options list are Dynamic Damper Control and the Adaptive Drive system with anti-roll stabilisation. The Driving Experience Control function, which is standard specification, allows drivers to customise the driving characteristics to suit their own personal preferences.
Options for the new BMW 6 Series Coupé also include adaptive LED headlights. The BMW ConnectedDrive driver assistance systems and mobility services, including the latest-generation BMW Head-Up Display with full-colour graphics, are pioneering in this segment.
The Control Display of the standard-fitted BMW iDrive control system is a freestanding, fixed flatscreen. Exceptional sound quality is provided by the optional Bang & Olufsen High-End Surround Sound System.
Visitors to the Tokyo Motor Show will be able to see the BMW 6 Series Coupé on display at the Motor Show. The Tokyo Motor Show is taking place from the 3rd of December 2011 to the 11th of December 2011.
