BMW 6 Series

Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – March 25,  2013 . . . The BMW   6 Series Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe models will enter the 2014   model year with a stronger line-up than ever, thanks to new   enhancements and a limited edition of the Convertible model sure to   make heads turn.

Limited to only 100 copies, the new 2014 BMW 6 Series Convertible   Frozen Brilliant White Edition will be produced in April and early   May, 2013, and will be instantly recognizable both inside and out.   Available as a rear-wheel drive 650i, or 650i xDrive model featuring   BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Frozen Brilliant White   Edition will have a starting MSRP of $106,695 and 110,095,   respectively (prices include $895 Destination & Handling), and   will arrive at Authorized BMW Centers this May.

Other 6 Series equipment specified to the Edition includes Black   Nappa leather upholstery, a black Convertible soft top, and Gray   Poplar wood trim. The M Sport Package and Executive Package are also   included, and xDrive models will benefit from the Cold Weather Package.

Additionally, the BMW 6 Series Convertible Frozen Brilliant White   Edition will mark the US-debut of BMW’s new Dynamic Digital Instrument   Cluster, which allows the “personality” and presentation of the car’s   instrumentation to change substantially with each of the various BMW   Driving Dynamics Control modes.

BMW M6 Specific Updates.

In addition to the June 5th market launch of the M6 Gran Coupe, the   2014 model year brings other BMW 6 Series news, specifically in the   territory of the ultra-high performance BMW M6 Coupe, Convertible, and   Gran Coupe models. The 2014 M6 will be offered with an optional   6-speed manual transmission, and M Carbon Ceramic Brakes are also now   available. These options round out the intensity of the M6 model and   allow enthusiastic owners to fully personalize the M driving experience.

The 6-speed manual transmission for the M6 Coupe, Convertible, and   Gran Coupe – available at no extra cost on all three models - was   developed in-house by BMW M GmbH engineers during a two-year period   preceding the launch of the newest generation of BMW M5 Sedan and M6   models. Control harmony, friction surfaces, and component strength   were all carefully tuned and tested to produce the most involved   driving experience possible. The manual transmission includes engine   management software that automatically and seamlessly matches engine   speeds during every downshift in the EFFICIENT and SPORT modes of   operation. Switching the engine mode to SPORT+ cancels this feature   and requires the driver to synchronize downshifts using the   accelerator pedal for maximum involvement.

The M Carbon Ceramic Brakes option includes large-diameter, long-life   front and rear brake rotors made of the most-modern carbon ceramic   composite material, netting the M6 a 42.8 lb (19.4 kg) weight savings   from the car’s crucial corner areas, specifically at the moving   suspension parts and wheel hubs. This weight reduction increases the   effectiveness of the entire suspension system. Of equal importance,   the M Carbon Ceramic Brake system also quickly dissipates the intense   heat generated by high-speed braking in the most efficient and   effective way possible. Truly a “maximum performance” option, the M   Carbon Ceramic Brakes also feature brilliant aesthetic quality, with a   mirror-like self-polishing finish of the brake rotor surface and   instantly-recognizable gold-painted brake calipers at all four corners.

All 2014 BMW 6 Series models receive the latest BMW iDrive version 4.2  2014 640i Gran Coupe now available with xDrive all-wheel drive

The 640i, 650i, and M6 models become the latest models to benefit   from the latest-generation HMI, BMW iDrive 4.2. BMW navigation system   which features a revised design and honed operating system. All 2014   BMW 6 Series models except M6 feature BMW’s superb 8-speed automatic   transmission and are available with xDrive, BMW’s intelligent   all-wheel drive system.  BMW xDrive will be available on the 2014 640i   Gran Coupe, joining other 640i and 650i Gran Coupe models available   with xDrive.

BMW’s iDrive4.2. Display and control in the third dimension.

The newest BMW navigation system features a revised design and honed   operating system. The menu-driven navigation system has been augmented   by new functions. The user interface includes revised graphics and now   comprises 3D elements, while the entire architecture of the individual   menus is now presented in virtual, three dimensional spaces. Its 1.3   GHz processor and dedicated 3D graphics card, bring new levels of   animation and dynamic transitions.

Along with the menu presentation, the navigation displays have been   revised and enhanced. The map displays and guidance information are   now depicted with even greater brilliance and sharpness than before.   Additional function bars allow the map view to be customized quickly   and simply without having to leave the map. The new function bars are   superimposed as an extension of the original map bar and open up   additional options. This allows for Real Time Traffic Information   (RTTI) or weather updates to be superimposed, points-of-interest to be   displayed, or the map to be quickly switched from top view to   perspective view. Standardization of the control bars in the   multimedia sphere facilitates operation of a wide range of audio sources.

The Pie menu: greater operating convenience at a click.

The interactive map view also comes with the option of selecting   special functions directly from the map. Using the iDrive Controller,   the driver can mark a spot in the interactive map to open the Pie   menu. This radial menu offers quick and easy access to a host of   options. Depending on the information stored, the driver can have   points-of-interest in the area flagged, read up on any stored details,   start navigation to any of the points-of-interest, alter the map view   and have the current location or destination displayed. If further   information on a point-of-interest – such as the telephone number – is   also stored, the driver can instantly access it and make a call.

Split-screen display with more detailed guidance views.

The split screen in the central information display also adds   newfunctions. While entering the destination byselecting the state,   city and road, the chosen location is also displayed in the map view   on the split screen. The zoom functioncan be used to verify whether   the destination shown in the relevant section of the map is the   intended one.

For the navigation process itself, the familiar arrow guidance in the   split screen has now been joined by a high-level guidance feature.   This is automatically activated when the driver reaches a certain   point ahead of the next navigation instruction. From a specified   distance, which varies according to the category of road, the arrow   display turns into a schematic, perspective view of the surroundings.   This gives the driver even better orientation thanks to an enhanced   depiction of the location and precise lane guidance. For an optimal   picture, the perspective view changes in stages to a top view of the   junction or intersection as the vehicle approaches it, while a dynamic   vehicle indicator pinpoints the car’s current position.

The new 3D city model offers another view of select cities to aid   navigation. If the 3D representation is available, a highly realistic   depiction of the surrounding streets and buildings makes it easier for   the driver to find their way around.

The mobile office: dictation function, voice memos and voice control.

The latest-generation navigation system features a full speech   recognition function and optimized voice control system to complete   the portfolio of office functions offered by BMW ConnectedDrive as   BMW. The full speech recognition system now includes the dictation   function which gives drivers the opportunity to dictate text freely   and compose short text-based messages simply by saying what they wish   to write. Just a few seconds after dictation has been completed, the   transcribed text appears in the display and can be read out if   desired. Drivers also have a number of simple-to-use, speech-based   editing tools available to them for putting the final touches to   e-mails and SMS messages easily and, most importantly, safely. The   multilingual system can recognize six languages including English and Spanish.

An additional speech-based option to enhance office functionality is   voice memos which can be sent directly by email. The advantage to the   driver is the ability to quickly store ideas or to-do items and send   them to the relevant addressee(s) – without being distracted. The   recorded memos can be stored on a USB stick for use outside the car.

The navigation system now allows additional menu functions to be   called up through simplified voice commands. The system is able to   recognize contact data irrespective of the format in which it is   stored, and thus independently of first name and surname order.   Additional submenu functions can now be activated or actions specified   by speech input – from adjusting the radio and entering a destination   to changing the route criteria. Voice control is becoming even easier   to use.

Rounding off the new office functions is the enhanced facility for   simultaneously pairing two phones to the car at the same time. The   contact data of both phones are now transferred to a shared list which   is then available for making phone calls and sending emails.   High-performance hardware means that calendar and contact information   is displayed without delay, ensuring that both telephones are quickly   ready for wide-ranging use in the vehicle.
