BMW Group Malaysia today marked the beginning of a new era in the Malaysian premium segment with the introduction of its first ever four-door coupé – the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.
Following the convertible and the coupé variants of the BMW 6 Series, this new exclusive model is the true embodiment of outstanding aesthetics, luxurious elegance and powerful dynamics in the perfect form.
The car combines the elegance of the BMW 6 Series, the functionality of a four-door sedan and the dynamics of a coupé – making it not just the most attractive coupé in its class but also one with the best everyday usability.
The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé is also the only four-door coupé that provides space for up to five people as standard. Its two outer rear seats are sporty individual seats with a high degree of comfort, while the third seat can be used for shorter journeys.
Featuring an in-line 6-cylinder engine which combines the latest generation BMW TwinPower Turbo technology with twin-scroll turbocharger, the 3.0 power unit is capable of delivering a power output of 320 hp and a maximum torque of 450Nm, enabling the impressive car to complete the 0 – 100km/h dash in 5.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 250km/h.
The tremendous power from the engine is then transferred to the wheels via a 8-speed sport automatic transmission that comes with a Auto Start / Stop function and Driving Experience Control – enabling customers to switch between the comfort, sports or ECO PRO mode to choose between relaxed, sporting agility or a more efficient style of driving.
In addition to the twin-scroll turbocharger and high precision injection, the technology package for the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé’s powerplant includes the VALVETRONIC variable valve lift control with Double-VANOS variable. Thanks to its advanced engine technology and BMW EfficientDynamics features, the four-door coupé does not just deliver extremely sporty performance, but also comes with exemplary fuel efficiency and emissions.
The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé boasts an average fuel consumption of 7.8 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of 181 grams per kilometre.
In its design, the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé fulfils the highest premium standards in terms of quality and spaciousness, and is truly an exceptional phenomenon. Its revolutionary design earned the BMW Group Design department an award for highest design quality at the recent 2012 Red Dot Design Awards.
Its tasteful lush details, low vehicle height and flat coupé roofline that flows into the rear, makes the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé an expression of pure BMW aesthetics. Galvanised trim elements between the air inlets and foglight as well as a third brake light, integrated into the rear roof edge which spans the entire width of the rear window, gives the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé a sense of individuality and sets it apart as a member of the BMW 6 Series family.
The cockpit is fully focused on the driver and the interior, which is available in Black, Cinnamon Brown and Ivory White, is as classy as one would expect from a top-of-the-range BMW model with the large, free-standing iDrive monitor, elegant curves and outstanding craftsmanship underscoring the exclusive character of the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.
The exclusivity of the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé is further emphasised by the availability of a premium package which includes exclusive leather Nappa upholstery with contrast stitching, instrument panels with leather finish and 19” light-alloy wheels with W-spoke design.
Additionally, the careful use of materials such as an aluminium bonnet and doors as well as plastic front wings and bootlid, keeps the weight of this luxurious four-door coupé in check, further ensuring that performance is kept suitably majestic.
While the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé impresses with its breathtaking design, it is the plethora of technical highlights that make this car a true ambassador for the innovative prowess of the BMW brand.
To complete the dynamic driving experience, the new four-door coupé also comes with Integral Active Steering, Adaptive Drive anti-roll stabilisation, Dynamic Damper Control, brake energy regeneration and electromechanical power steering. As any other contemporary BMW vehicles, the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé also provides a selection of innovative BMW ConnectedDrive functions, such as the full colour BMW Head-up Display, rear-view camera, Speed Limit Device, office functions and Internet access, along with Facebook and Twitter Apps.
BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé are vailable in Black Sapphire, Vermillon Red, Havanna, Space Grey, Orion Silver, Deep Sea Blue and Mineral White. It is priced at RM788,800 (on the road, without insurance) and can be purchased with the optional premium package for an additional RM35,000.00.
