New BMW coupé set for Mideast launch
Dubai, September 4, 2012
The new third generation BMW M6 Coupé is set to join the recently launched Convertible in the Middle East, seven years after BMW M first added the high performance sports car to its portfolio.
Launched in 2005, the latest generation of M6 are the highest performing in the 6 Series range, BMW said in a statement.
The interplay of the high-revving 4.4 litre V8 engines and M TwinPower Turbo technology is accompanied by a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic, Active M Differential and model-specific chassis technology, all of which ensure you get the drive of your life.
These 560 hp high-performance sports cars offer fuel efficiency which is unmatched by rivals. The new BMW M6 Coupé records average fuel consumption of 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres (28.5 mpg imp) and the BMW M6 Convertible records 10.3 l/100 km (27.4 mpg imp) and 239 g/km, meaning that emissions have been reduced by over 30 per cent in both models compared with their predecessors.
On the exterior, classical proportions and the sporty yet elegant lines of the BMW 6 Series form the foundations for the striking body of the BMW M6 Coupé and Convertible.
The Convertible features looks underlined by the “fin” architecture of the soft-top roof, whilst the Coupé shows off a contoured roof made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic.
Exterior features include the standard-fitted adaptive LED headlights while hallmark M styling cues add detail to the bodywork and highlight their performance attributes.
Both the coupé and the convertible offer 19-inch M light-alloy wheels featuring seven double spokes with unique two-tone finish, with the optional 20-inch M light-alloy wheels.
Features inside the cockpit of the BMW M6 Convertible and Coupé include the 2-zone automatic climate control, heated seats with fine-grain Merino leather trim seats, carbon-fibre interior trim strips, door sill strips with “M6” lettering, automatically dimming rear-view mirror and exterior mirrors, Cruise Control with braking and the BMW Professional radio with HiFi loudspeakers.
When it comes to BMW ConnectedDrive assistance technology, the BMW M6 Convertible and Coupé feature technologies including BMW Park Assistant, High Beam Assistant, Lane Change Warning, and Lane Departure Warning.
Almost all BMW 6 Series equipment options are available for the BMW M6 Coupé and Convertible, including Comfort Access, active seats, doors with Soft Close Automatic function, navigation system Professional and the Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System. – TradeArabia News Service
