The Mighty BMW 6 Series Returns

The New 6 Series Coupe

BMW 6 Series

Details of BMW’s new 6 Series were announced on the 10th July 2003. Debuting alongside the X3 at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the new BMW 645Ci Coupé promises power and performance within a breathtaking, contemporary design.

This is the first BMW Coupé to wear the legendary 6 Series badge since 1989. And though it carries the heritage of its predecessor, the new model moves the BMW 6 Series on a generation offering a mouth-watering combination of:

  • 4.4-litre V8 power unit with VALVETRONIC
  • Choice of three different six-speed transmissions, including SMG gearbox
  • Intelligent use of lightweight materials
  • Class-leading specification and ground-breaking options
Contemporary Design

Employing modern BMW design language, the new 6 Series is a luxury Coupe for the 21st century, exuding road presence and dynamism typical of a BMW Coupé. The car is 4,820 mm (189.8") long, 1,855 mm (73.0") wide, and 1,373 mm (54.1") high, with a power dome on the bonnet, low roof line, and contoured front and side panels, giving it a dynamic and elegant stance.
