German luxury really does rank rather highly in the world of cars. It not only is of very high quality but it is also unlikely to disintegrate over the period of a few weeks. Both Audi and Mercedes-Benz have cars in the sport coupe inspires saloon section of the market and BMW very much want a slice of that pie. The BMW 6 Series Grand Coupe was once a concept, but now is a firm pillar of reality.
The sleek new saloon really is a good looking machine sticking close to what we first saw in concept form. Muscular sculpting of almost every panel gives the car a very dynamic appearance, one that makes the handsome A7 look a bit flat. With all the luxurious toys you can imagine inside, the Gran Coupe will be offered with two petrol and one diesel engine. The 640i gets a 3.0 litre turbo straight six producing 316BHP, the 650i gets a meaty 4.4 litre V8 with 444BHP, and the diesel 640d has a twin-turbo 3.0 litre armed with 309BHP. The quickest of the bunch, 650i, will do 0-62MPH in just 4.6 seconds.
What is even more exciting is that next year we will get an M6 Gran Coupe with a twin-turbo 4.4 litre V8 and 552BHP! The cheapest Gran Coupe starts at £61,000.
