Munich. The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is fascinatingly elegant, highly versatile and outstandingly dynamic to drive. In order to demonstrate the sporty character of the model, the model-specific BMW M Performance Parts will already be available at market launch in November 2017. The customised and motor racing inspired retrofit parts for drive, suspension, exterior and cockpit enhance dynamic driving even further and give the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo an individual and powerfully expressive appearance.

The well-established racing expertise of BMW M GmbH, which was made use of in developing the parts, is reflected in the authentic style of the BMW M Performance Parts range. All components are fully subject to the high BMW Group standards in terms of material selection, design and quality of workmanship. Retrofitting these items has no impact whatsoever on the warranty terms as applicable to the vehicle in question.

The BMW M Performance exhaust silencer system gives the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo a truly impressive acoustic and visual dimension. It gives the rear a striking look and ensures a sporty sound which is, however, also suitable for long-distance travel. The silencer is made of stainless steel and was especially developed for the petrol engine models BMW 630i Gran Turismo (combined fuel consumption: 6.6 – 6.2 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 152 – 142 g/km), BMW 640i Gran Turismo (combined fuel consumption: 7.4 – 7.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 169 – 159 g/km), BMW 640i xDrive Gran Turismo (combined fuel consumption: 8.2 – 7.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 187 – 177 g/km). Depending on engine type and equipment, it comes with either round or trapezoid tailpipe trims in chrome or carbon fibre. The round tailpipes feature an engraved M logo and the trapezoid tailpipes the M Performance inscription.

Driving dynamics and visual appeal of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo both profit from the 21 inch BMW M Performance light alloy wheels. They are manufactured using weight-saving forging methods and feature a two-level double-spoke design in bi-colour composition. The high-gloss paintwork is combined with burnished surfaces for the outer spoke level and the wheel rim. The exclusively designed wheels have mixed tyres in the sizes 245/35 R21 on the front axle and 275/30 R21 on the rear axle, complete with emergency running properties. The sport braking system, which is also available for the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, optimises both the dynamic driving experience as well as the car’s visual impact. Even when driven in extremely dynamic fashion, the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo achieves constant braking performance by means of inner vented, perforated lightweight construction brake discs with 4-piston fixed caliper brakes made of aluminium on the front axle and single-piston floating caliper brakes on the rear axle. Red brake calipers serve as a visual indication of the fact that the design of the BMW M Performance sport brake system is derived from motor racing.

The high-gloss black BMW M Performance kidney grille gives the front of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo a specifically dynamic look. In combination with the black trim bars of the air flap control, the BMW kidney grille receives a perfectly colour harmonised appearance.

The BMW M Performance exterior mirror caps in carbon fibre are yet another visual highlight. The components made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) are elaborately crafted by hand especially for the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. Multi-layer paintwork and high-gloss finishing give the car’s surfaces their striking intensity. The BMW M Performance Frozen Black foil superbly accentuates the sporty-elegant lines and the harmonious proportions of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. The matt black and grey trim stripes match the car’s geometry perfectly.

The BMW M Performance sports steering wheel gives the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo a special motor racing touch inside the cockpit. Its alcantara-covered grip areas, large thumb rests and the slightly flattened lower section make it a pleasure to hold, provide optimum grip and ensure direct steering response. Soft nappa leather both in the upper and lower section as well as on the steering wheel trim, a silver-grey cross-stitch seam and the red central marking at the 12 o’clock position round off the highly dynamic design of the BMW M Performance sports steering wheel. It also features shift paddles for manually selecting gears in conjunction with the 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission. BMW M Performance foot mats are also available in the cockpit product range.

The model-specific retrofit options from the BMW M Performance range will be available right from the launch of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. All products form part of the Original BMW Accessories program, sold and installed through the BMW dealer network, BMW sales subsidiaries and BMW Service Partners.

So they didn't put a hockey stick on this car... only to add it as an overpriced decal option. Nice.

Couldn't at least make a front lip this time? Wow black grills what an upgrade

If the M Division can pipe in fake sound, maybe they can also whip up a cloaking device, or at least make it look like an E9 from the outside.

its almost a double hockey stick. the rocker panel is bascially the hockey stick just body colored.

bmw getting lazy. the mirror caps are from the G30. and im willing to bet the front grills are as well. same goes for the exhaust and exhaust tips. this car is ugly. i would have been impressed if they made a front lip to transform that lifted from the g30 bumper.

Let's be fair. It's a BOTCHED abortion of a design concept. This thing never should have seen the light of day.

Wow..they actually made it look even uglier, as if this could be possible. Gotta give credits to them, that's such an accomplishment.

RIP 6er. Miss it already.

I saw a 6GC the other day. What a beautiful, beautiful car. I can only imagine that car shooting itself in the head after it sees what happened to its progeny.

Maybe someone can explain it to me but why do they need this and the X6? Between a 5 sedan, X5, X6 and even the 7 if someone really needs more room, what's the 6GT do that one of the others doesn't?

I have driven the 3GT and 5GT. 5GT was HORRIBLE. I can only imagine liking this less. The 3GT with the longer wheelbase I can actually make an argument for in very certain narrow circumstances. GF is a realtor for her it would be pretty ideal to have clients in back seat, haul all her shit around, etc. and not make people climb up into an SUV. That said making the 3GT bigger seems like it would be worse in every way.

Worst than the E71

Wow, it sure feels like deja vu all over again. Is it me or the backlash from the 6GT is much worst than the x6 debut year.

What you guys dislike the most about it?

Homie was spot with the "lipstick on a pig" ? good one.

Idk where BMW is going with this one.

I think the roofline design simply can't be a cut and paste. I'm with you. I think it translated the best on the 3GT.

Thoughts?
