2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe - 2012 Geneva Auto Show

Making its formal debut in Geneva, the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe looked every bit as elegant in the metal as it did in photos released late last year. Aimed directly at luxury rivals like the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and Porsche Panamera, this latest addition to the 6 Series lineup will join its platform mates here in the U.S. starting later this summer. While the Geneva outing provided no new mechanical facts about this stunning four-door coupe beyond what was revealed in our comprehensive BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe preview story, the automaker did confirm pricing and model lineup information regarding the versions we'll be getting here in the U.S.

American buyers will have a choice of three distinct 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe models. Early summer will see the arrival of the Gran Coupe 640i that will be fitted BMW's N55 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six rated at 315 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. Shortly thereafter, the 650i and 650i xDrive all-wheel-drive versions will turn up to round out the family. While both pack BMW's familiar 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V-8 used in other 6 Series models, the Gran Coupe-spec engine one-ups the standard configuration by adding BMW's Valvetronic variable valve timing system, a change that boosts output from 400 to 445 horsepower and takes peak torque from 450 to 480 lb-ft. BMW has pegged the 2013 640i Gran Coupe to open at $76,895. Pricing for the 650i and 650i xDrive Gran Coupe variants will be released closer to their on-sale dates.
