Starting in June, the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupé will be arriving in UK showrooms. Its price begins at £61,390. Powering the entry-level version of the four-door coupe 640i is the 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six petrol engine, producing 316bhp and 450lb ft. BMW claims that it can reach 35.8mpg figure on the combined cycle. It’s likely that the 640d would make up most of the sales.
It’s also believed that the £63,900 640d is likely to make up the majority of sales. Its 3.0-litre diesel delivers 313bhp and 465lb ft, while emissions are rated at 148g/km. When using the combined cycle, it posts an official average of 46.9mpg on the combined cycle.
At the top of this range is the £70,650 4.4-litre V8-engined 650i, which enables the vehicle to go from zero to 62mph in 4.6secs. This gave an output of 450bhp and 479lb ft of torque. This range has three models, which could all arrive at 155mph while their power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The features offered as standard include: s 18-inch alloys (19-inch on the 650i), 10.2inch BMW Professional Navigation, two-zone climate control and heated front seats. BMW will also offer an M Sport version, which will get an aero kit, a set of 19-inch M double-spoke light-alloy wheels, black brake calipers and sports seats. It’s estimated that the M Sport will make up for about 80% of UK Sales of the Gran Coupé.
The most famous derivative of the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupé will be the latest model which will be responsible for 80 percent of all the sales in the UK. For clients who want a long-distance tourer, this model of the BMW is perhaps one of the most athletic yet luxurious diesel models in the world. The pure aluminum 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder model in the 640d Gran Coupé boasts of a combined fuel economy of 50.4mpg. Because of its 70-litre fuel tank, it has the capacity to drive around 800 miles, and its CO2 emissions have been cut down to only 148g/km. This gives the paired benefits of a 22 percent BIK for drivers of company cars and Vehicle Excise Duty of only £130 a year.
But in terms of performance, the luxury model still makes 313hp at 4,400rpm and 630Nm of torque between 1,500 and 2,500rpm. It is at par with the 640i when it comes to its acceleration time from 0 to 62mph of 5.4 seconds.
The 3.0-liter in-line 6-cylinder engine in the BMW 640i Gran Coupé showcases direct injection with VALVETRONIC fully variable valve control plus Double-VANOS fully variable camshaft control, and contains a single twin-scroll turbocharger. With these specifications, three exhaust pipes move air back to the turbine through one scroll as the other does the same function. In this setup, two channels of exhaust gases maintain the turbocharger functioning at its best.
The output is an engine that creates peak power of 320hp at 5,800rpm. In addition, its max torque of 450Nm starts at 1,300rpm and is kept at 4,500rpm, helping the BMW 640i Gran Coupé go from 0-62mph in 5.4 seconds. The effortless ability of the car is paired with the combined fuel economy of 36.2mpg, plus CO2 emissions of only 181g/km.
An up-to-date 450hp 4.4-litre direct-injection V8 installed in the BMW 650i Gran Coupé is the best among the three engines in this series. This powerplant gains its max power from 5,500 to 6,000rpm, with peak torque of 650Nm keeping constant from 2,000 to 4,500rpm. For the V8 in the 6-Series Coupé and Convertible, the turbochargers are specifically placed in the vee in the middle of the cylinder banks with a turbocharger designated for the engine's one side while the opposite side is designated to the other bank.
