Three years after the BMW 6-Series Convertible was launched, the German carmaker has updated the lineup by now offering it in three distinct body styles: the traditional two-door Coupe, the open-air Convertible, and the four-door Gran Coupe.
According to the German carmaker, the 6-Series Coupe and Convertible offer significantly enhanced sports performance, while the 6-Series Gran Coupe exudes "a heightened sense of elegance."
Changes to the exterior are the newly designed kidney grille and front and rear aprons to accentuate the width of the body. Six-cylinder models can also be distinguished via the larger tailpipe embellishers. Newly developed full-LED headlights are now fitted as standard across the lineup, with adaptive LED headlights with BMW’s selective beam anti-dazzle high beam assistant available as an option.
Depending on the market, the three body styles of the 6-Series are available with either the 320hp 3.0-liter straight-six 640i, the 450hp 4.4-liter V8 650i, or the 313hp 3.0-liter straight-six diesel 640d.
The top-of-the-line 6-Series models, however, are the M6 Coupe, the M6 Convertible and the M6 Gran Coupe, all of which are propelled by a 4.4-liter M turbocharged V8 engine that produces 560hp and 678Nm.
To tell the M6 apart from the regular 6-Series, it gets an M-specific double-bar kidney grille and a front apron with large air intakes, sculpted front wings with hallmark M gills (including integrated side indicators), side skirts, and exclusive 19-inch M forged light-alloy wheels. Rounding out the M6 model's look are the rear apron with integrated diffuser insert, two sets of M-specific twin tailpipes, and the customary M6 logo on the trunk lid. Another exclusive M feature is the ultra-lightweight contoured carbon roof of the new M6 Coupe and M6 Gran Coupe.
