The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

The 6 Series Gran Coupe may appear as a contradiction to those who define a coupe or sedan by the number of doors it has. This is the first ever four door coupe from BMW with no compromise on design and performance. The Gran Coupe is available as a 640i with 315 horsepower and the 650i with 450 horsepower.

What is the exact color name for the M6 convertible. That looks so clean and sexy. Haha. I'm going to have to get that color for my next BMW in 5 years.

I'm mad at myself that in all the time I was there in the BMW booth I forgot to grab the ear of the highest BMW "dignitary" I could get my hands on and tell them to nix the "lines" thing! I would not buy a F30 until I can take options that only come on the Modern Line and can mix it with what comes on the Sports Line. The inability to do so is utter idiocy and I've never seen anything like that in any car I'd considered buying in the past.
