Behold BMW’s latest addition to it 6 Series line – the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. The latest addition to the 6 Series line features a four-dour structure that could carry up to five passengers. The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe boasts of retaining the spectacular design and proportions as well as driving dynamics of the 6 Series Coupe while providing enough room for up to five passengers.

With its detailed lines and smooth curves, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is the ideal vehicle for any driver who hungers for a luxurious and sporty coupe yet considers a comfortable car that can transport four adults at ease.

The company will offer the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe as three distinct models in the USA: BMW 640i, 650i and 650i xDrive. The 2013 BMW 640i Gran Coupe is powered by a TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine and will arrive in showrooms early this summer. The 2013 BMW 650i Gran Coupe, powered by a TwinPower Turbo V-8, and the all-wheel drive 2013 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe, will be available in the country late in the summer.
