So the Gran Coupe is getting the same 4.4l twin-turbo V8, but putting out nearly 50 more hp? Any thoughts on if this more powerful version would be placed into the 650i next year?

Probably just tuning. The Dinan tuned 550 (same engine) is getting 493hp. It's always possible.

They had to bump up the horse power to off-set the weight gain, I'd guess.

I bought a CLS500 the year they came out. The next year, they came out with the CLS550, with an increase in power. It shot the resale on my car as everyone wanted the bigger, new engine. I hope BMW is watching that.

Perhaps this will make it easier to get into the 2012 6er, then!
