BMW 6-series Gran Coupe · photos, packages and modifications

BMW's direct rival to the Mercedes CL is the Gran Coupe 6 series even though the Mercedes model has been around for quite a long time compared to BMW model. It is based on the same 6 series Coupe platform but he stretches length was increased compared to the 113 mm which allowed enough room in the rear part of the cabin to allow more legroom and a decent boot size with the seats folded. Handling of the large car is equally impressing and even though choosing options may cost you you can benefit from the chassis option. The choices of units in petrol include the 640i six cylinders and the 650i V8 unit however in the UK market the 640d was the best seller among all. From the front view the Gran Coupe is no different from the Coupeitself. It contains the same shark like nose and a grille that is forward slanting creating a front end that looks aggressive. The low slung, stretched profile allows it to have a rather sporty look even for a vehicle measuring over 5 meters length wise.

The Gran Coupe weighs an amazing 1,850 kg and still handles the most brilliant way. Standards include variable dampers and a comfortable ride even in the model's most firmest Sport+ mode. If you choose the option of the Active Drive system adds on the anti roll bars, a beautifully balanced ride with the car staying flat on corners. Also included is the option of an Integral Active Steering system which steers the rear and front tires equaling to a well weighted responsive steering that crisply reacts to the inputs. The 640i producing 316 bhp engine revs freely and gives a beautiful sound whereas the 650i model producing 444 bhp with the V8 4.4 litre turbo engine is brutally quick. However the 640d tops both and delivers a storming sprint of 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds along with superior fuel economy too.

All Gran Coupe engines are tested and tried elsewhere in the entire range and so any major problem in the mechanics is seldom ever to occur. The optional safety equipment range is huge containing BMW pedestrian recognition Night vision, Surround view, Speed limit display, Park assist, Lane departure warning system, Change warning system and Head up display with full of colors to glue your eyes on the road full time.

The dashboard is Coupe identical and slants to the driver equipped with the same massive 10.2 inch display screen. The build quality and material are exceptional and a large variety of interior trims are available with a large option of exterior paints also. The Gran Coupe is branded by BMW as a 4+1 instead of a 2+2 Coupe and so a skillful fifth passenger can bestride the middle console however the raised seating leaves very little headroom whereas the legroom is spacious and generous and contrasting to other Coupes the rear seats actually fold flat expanding the narrow 460 litres boot to a 1,265 litres. Also included is the ski hatch which allows longer items to fit in.
