BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo Is Much Better Looking Than the 5

We saw some leaked shots late yesterday of the new 6 Series GT but now we have all the official information including photo’s and video.

The initial feeling is that the designers have made enough changes to make it a lot less ugly and from the front it is actually rather attractive. What has changed and what is new from the 5?

  • Car is longer at 5,091mm but lower by 21mm
  • The horrific tailgate from the 5 has been lowered by 64mm (good work)
  • Larger grille flanked by LED headlights as standard
  • Frameless windows
  • Wraparound taillights with 3D styling elements
  • Freestanding 10.25-inch iDrive display (voice and gesture control)
  • Semi-autonomous driving is an optional extra

Under the hood you have the option of three different engines.

630i

  • 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 190 kW and 400 Nm of torque
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds

640i

  • 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 250 kW and 450 Nm of torque
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds (when equipped with xDrive)

630d

  • 3.0-liter six-cylinder that produces 195 kW and 620 Nm of torque
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds with AWD

The car will be arriving in South Africa in November but we will not be offered the 630i.
