BMW 6-series Coupe (2011) Official Pics
















BMW today released the first pictures of the production 6-series coupe, on sale in the UK in October 2011.
Old news... the 6-series launched last year in Paris, didn't it?

That was the all-but-identical 6-series concept. You may also be confusing this car with the 6-series Convertible, which was unveiled at the decidedly un-sunny 2011 Detroit motor show in January 2011. Now, just in time for warmer weather, here's the fixed-roof version of the new BMW Six. Hang on...
2011 BMW 6-series Coupe: the lowdown

Styling of the new BMW 6-series was apparently 'inspired by well designed waves that caused the lines and volumes in the surroundings of a flow around a body of water'. That probably made more sense in the original German, but the result is a more restrained big coupe with fewer of the controversial details that marked out its predecessor.

At 4894mm long and 1894mm wide, the 6-series coupe has grown 75mm and 39mm respectively over the previous edition's dimensions. Make no mistake; this is a big GT coupe.
The engines available on the BMW 6-series

The 6-series will launch with your choice of 402bhp petrol V8 (650i), or 315bhp petrol straight-six (640i) engines. Both engines earn their model numbers with the aid of turbocharging. The diesels comes along later (presumably with mandatory badge-delete for maximum pose effect). Standard transmission will be the ZF eight-speed automatic, teamed-up with the usual raft of Efficient Dynamics eco-friendly features.

As we know from part-electrified BMW saloons and SUVs, this ZF transmission can be mated with hybrid modules, so we wouldn't be surprised if an ActiveHybrid 6-series arrived at some point in the future. But for now you'll have to make do with a donor 5-series-style head-up display, adaptive LED headlamps, adaptive damping, Bang & Olufsen hi-fi and a raft of other comfort and convenience features on the options list.

Inside? We're expecting it to be much as the 6-series cabriolet, but BMW hasn't provided us with official interior shots yet.

we will most likely get the 635 and 650 here...

the new improved n55 engine is too good and rumours have it that a new turbo'd inline 4 will be replacing the current na inline6, same performance numbers + power band, better fuel economy.

Actually the design is pretty nice.

Looks more bold and lines flow smoothly.
