The 2013 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe made its public debut today at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The four-door coupe is a first for the brand with a unique shape that features unusually flat proportions for a sedan, hence the “coupe” name.

Under the hood, BMW offers a range of powerful engine options starting with a twin-turbo inline six that makes 320 hp, an inline six-cylinder diesel engine that makes 313 hp and a range-topping, twin-turbo 450-hp V8.

All versions come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission that the company says reduces fuel consumption across the board. Engine start / stop technology also helps reduce consumption. For the most environmentally-friendly driving experience (which is a relative term with any of these engines) drivers can press the “ECO PRO” button to send the 6-Series Gran Coupe into its most efficient mode.

There’s plenty of storage space in the trunk, especially if the rear seats are folded down — more than 16 cubic feet with them up and more than 44.5 cubic feet with the rear seats sitting flat.

Aside from storage space, the interior gets typical BMW luxury treatment with dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a leather interior and a “professional” radio all come standard.

Interested parties can expect the product launch in June of this year with an M Sport available simultaneously.
