BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe “BANG & OLUFSEN” Edition

The Ultimate Driving Machine meets the finest High-End Sound.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – June 6, 2014. . .
BMW announced today the launch of the 2015 BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe “BANG & OLUFSEN Edition” which exemplifies the design and engineering prowess of the two luxury-sector manufacturers. This limited run of vehicles seamlessly combines the most exquisite materials and craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology and the finest high-end sound.

Production is limited to 100 BMW 650i Gran Coupe models equipped with either rear wheel drive or BMW xDrive all-wheel drive and powered by the BMW TwinPower Turbo V-8. Customers looking for an even sportier driving experience can choose one of ten BMW M6 Gran Coupe “BANG & OLUFSEN Edition” vehicles, equipped with the Competition Package that enhances the most powerful engine ever fitted to a BMW production vehicle by raising its output from 560 to 575 hp. Orders are being taken now on a first-come-first-served basis with deliveries this summer.

Taking the sleek yet powerfully styled 6 Series Gran Coupe as its canvas, the edition is offered in two BMW Individual colors – Brilliant White Metallic or Dark Graphite II Metallic.

The interior features the finest handcrafted Merino Leathers in either Black with Contrast Stitching/Piping or Opal White & Black with Contrast Stitching/Piping. This design theme is complimented by a Piano Black Wood Trim with a “BANG & OLUFSEN” inlay on the front cup-holder lid as well as specially designed floor mats. The M6 Gran Coupe adds the M logo uniquely embroidered into the front headrests in the M colors.

At the core of the series of vehicles is the Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System with special loudspeaker grilles in a brushed black aluminium finish which make their debut on this edition. With 16 active loudspeakers powered by 1,200 watts, the Bang & Olufsen system has all the power it needs to deliver rich, convincing sound.

Over and above the special features, the “BANG & OLUFSEN Edition” leaves nothing to be desired with an impressive list of standard content that includes the Cold Weather Package as well as the M Sport Edition (which is comprised of the M Sport Package, Executive Package, LED Lighting Package, and Driver Assistance Plus Package). The M6 Gran Coupe also boasts a fully loaded list of standard content with the addition of the high-performance Competition Package, Executive Package and Driver Assistance Plus Package.

Every BMW Individual “BANG & OLUFSEN Edition” also comes with a set of black BeoPlay H6 high-end headphones specially finished in the same brushed aluminum treatment as the car’s loudspeaker grilles.

Now, why would I want to spoil my nice interior with a big fucking B&O badge on the upholder cover??? Are there really people who think that looks good?

whats the special finish? i can't tell the difference. how about take off the speaker cover, and create a special finish at home yourself. save about 20k.

I was thinking of trading into this to upgrade from the regular Hi-Fi system but that B&O sticker comes at a steep price.

Being that so few people have ordered or will order this B&O 6er, I'm pretty sure that alone makes it a "limited edition".

Too bad the B&O option in our M6s isn't a true audiophile system.
