BMW Group to unveil new sports car
Dubai, February 19, 2013
BMW Group has announced it will unveil its new BMW M6 Series gran coupé, the third body variant of the BMW M6 high-performance sports car, to global audiences at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show.
Following in the tracks of the BMW M6 Series convertible and coupé that were launched last year, the new BMW M6 Series gran coupé is set to cause a storm with its hard hitting looks and high revving V8 engine, a statement from the company said.
The new BMW M6 gran coupé will be recognisable as an elegant and sporty 6 Series, but with enhanced M styling design cues that make it look sportier and more powerful, the statement said. These elements include wider air intakes, stunningly-contoured headlight units, newly designed M kidney grille, which bears an "M6" badge, and powerful 17 and 18-inch M light-alloy wheels.
Additional 2013 Geneva International Motor Show model introductions for the BMW Group will include the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, which boasts spaciousness and practicality in aesthetic form, the innovative BMW i3 and i8 concepts and the BMW Concept Active Tourer, which combines comfort with dynamism and style, it said.
Dr Joerg Breuer, managing director of BMW Group Middle East, said: “The M6 gran coupé follows in the tyre tracks of the 6 Series gran coupé by offering a unique combination of sporty driving pleasure and elegant design, but at the same time, offering enhanced sporty style and increased engine power. It is these elements which will ensure the model stands out from the crowd at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show in March.”
The BMW M6 Series Gran Coupé is expected to go on sale in the Middle East mid-year. – TradeArabia News Service
