The luxury carmaker is back with an updated model of its already popular series. BMW has gained expertise specifically in the production of luxurious sedans with powerful engines. The German automaker makes sure that it does not compromise with the driving quality in the name of luxurious features. The reason behind its global popularity is the balance it strikes between these two aspects. Another example of such intelligent technology is out and we can’t help but get excited. The latest addition to the BMW range is a part of the Series 6 coupe models. Dubbed the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, this vehicle takes the experience of a luxury car to the next level.
The main idea of this BMW upgrade is to combine the 6 series model with the design of a Gran Turismo. The automaker will sell the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo along with the Gran Coupe. Basically, the plan is to stop the sale of the rest of the 6 series models and only the Gran Turismo will be available in the market. This will give this model an edge due to lesser competition among its own range. The 6 series range is one of the most popular ranges among the audience till date. Launching this luxury car among this range gives us an idea about its appealing features.
This latest BMW upgrade will exclusively be available in the country of U.S. As per the usual power capacity of the 6 series range, the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo comes with a 335 horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six along with 332lb-ft of torque. The automaker assures an impressive pickup as it is based on the principle of using the lightweight material. This principle was also used during the production of the 5 series, 7 series, and 8 series. The luxury car also has a 50-50 weight distribution. This means that the car won’t bulge on any one particular side.
Like any other BMW model, even the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo has an impressive pickup. The car can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in the span of 5.1 seconds. The highest speed of this luxury car is 130 miles per hour. This model is the first ever BMW which has an Active Driving Assistance. This feature provides driving aids such as side collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control. The semi-autonomous driver mode gives the driver the liberty to let go of the wheel for up to 50 seconds. The automaker claims that the car will be available in the American states this fall starting at the price of $70,695.
