BMW is expanding its offerings on the new 6-Series Coupe and Convertible by adding the ever-popular M-Sport package, a diesel option, and for the first time in the 6-Series model’s history, an xDrive all-wheel-drive variant. The 640d Coupe and Convertible models will be powered by a 3.0L straight-six with 313-hp and a whopping 464 ft-lbs of torque while claiming around 43-mpg (on the European cycle).
The 407-hp turbocharged V8 6-Series will also have the xDrive option available on the 650i, which has been a fairly popular option across all the other BMW models that currently offer it.
Most exciting, however, is the addition of an M Sport package to the 6-Series, giving it a sportier appearance. The package comes complete with an M-aerodynamics kit with all new front and rear bumpers, LED foglights, 19-inch M-alloy wheels, sport seats with Alcantara/leather upholstery and an M-leather steering wheel. Those that wish to take part in BMW’s Individual range program can also order their vehicle in custom paint shades, wheels and other options.
Pricing has yet to be announced and look for all models (except the diesel) to be offered in the U.S.
