The 2012 BMW 6 Series is about as all-new as an all-new model can be. Aside from an overwhelming list of new features and technologies, the 6 Series lineup will now include a 6-cylinder turbo engine option (640i Coupe and 640i Convertible) and available all-wheel drive (650i xDrive Coupe and 650i xDrive Convertible). Later we'll see a high-performance M6 model and a first-ever 4-door 6 Series in the spirit of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7.
This is the second car from BMW to carry the M6 name (the first was available in the U.S. in 1987-88) and the latest in a long line of BMW luxury performance coupes. Now available in coupe and convertible forms, the 2008 M6 comes equipped with a 5.0-liter DOHC 40-valve V10 engine and can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in about 4.5 seconds. Produced in limited quantity at BMW's Dingolfing, Germany factory, this four-seat sports coupe is built to deliver optimal performance with luxurious comfort.
