BMW 6-Series Gran Tourer in the works, will debut in 2016

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 31, 2014

BMW created new segments with surprising vehicles such as the X6, X4, 5-Series GT as well as the 3-Series GT. In order to be a few steps ahead of the competition, it appears that the Bavarian carmaker will also add a Gran Tourer version, called 6-Series GT.

Following the same path as the 5-Series GT and the 3-Series GT, the BMW 6-Series GT is planned for the next-generation 6-Series and will arrive in 2016, just in time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its popular model.

The new 6-Series GT will take on the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake and will have a length of about 5 meters. Mercedes-Benz introduced its CLS Shooting Brake back in 2012 and opened a new segment on the auto market.

The German vehicle featured a stylish rear end and featured a wooden luggage compartment floor.

Mercedes-Benz pushed things even further when it introduced a high-performance version, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake, a beast powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine generating 525 hp and 700 Nm of torque.

Despite its dimensions, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake was capable to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). We don’t know if BMW will go so far and offer an M version of the 6-Series Gran Tourer but we are eager to see the new vehicle and its design.
