BMW has announced the all-new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo, which will be offered exclusively as a BMW 640i xDrive model. The BMW 6-Series used to be sold in the coupe and sedan form earlier and now will be available in the GT form only.

“The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is geared towards discerning customers who place great importance on individuality. It is an eye-catching statement, packaged into a flowing, sculptural design language which gives the car a modern and sporty feel. The raised seating position ensures an imperious brand of driving pleasure, and the luxurious levels of space provide everything you need for a relaxing journey,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

The A-pillars of the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo are linked with the roofline reaching its highest point at the top of the B-pillar, flowing like a coupe’s into the rear. The standard Icon Adaptive Full LED Headlights feature hexagonal LED tubes for the daytime running lights that extend to meet the kidney grille.

The active rear spoiler, which automatically extends when the car exceeds 75 mph and retracts again when it slows below 50 mph, helps to reduce lift and improve the drag coefficient (Cd). A total of 12 colors, wheels in 19-inch, 20-inch and 21-inch sizes will be available. It will be offered in the M-Sports package or an optional Luxury Package.
