BMW has pulled the wraps off the 2012 6-Series Gran Coupe. Brought in to take on it’s German rivals, the Audi A7 and Mercedes CLS, the new 2012 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe joins the existing two-door coupe and convertible 6-Series thereby expanding the range to make things a bit more tough for the A7 and CLS.
Compared to its two-door counterpart, the Gran Coupe is a full 4.4 inches longer, and most of that added length benefits the rear passengers. BMW’s literature states that the stretched 6 Series has a 4+1 seating configuration, meaning there’s actually a quasi-usable seat between the two outboard rear positions. The interior too is well appointed with acres of leather and other creature comforts to pamper its occupants. iDrive, rear seat entertainment package etc would also be on offer.
Under the hood of the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe will be a turbocharged 3.0 litre inline-6 cylinder engine with 315 horsepower. The top-of-the-line variant, the 650i will boast a 4.4 litre twin-turbocharged V8 churning out 445 bhp of raw power. The Gran Coupe in its high-end guise will also feature four-wheel drive in the form of BMW’s xDrive.
The 6-Series Gran Coupe will be making its global debut sometime later next year and expect an Indian launch to follow soon after the global launch.
