BMW lands bigger, heavier but prettier new 6 Series Coupe to battle CL, SL, 911

13 Dec 2011

BMW has along history of making big, beautiful sports coupes, and the larger, heavier new 6 Series represents a return to classic luxury two-door styling for the Munich maker. Available now in bahnstorming twin-turbo V8 and, for the first time, turbocharged six-cylinder guises priced from under $180,000, the 6 Series Coupe follows the all-new Convertible launched here in August. Apart from a new-found sense of style, the 650i Coupe delivers all the performance and technology expected at this rarified level, but does it cut the mustard in a top-end coupe segment dominated by accomplished rivals like the Mercedes SL and CL, and Porsche's timeless 911?
Model release date: 1 December 2011 to 1 May 2015

Previous model

E63 6 Series coupe and convertible

Released: May 2004
Ended: April 2011
Family Tree: 6 Series

BMW’S first modern 6 Series followed the popular 635 CSi that debuted in 1976 and was released in Australia in both coupe and convertible forms in May 2004.

Priced from $203,000 and $220,000 respectively, both 645Ci models were available only with a 245kW 4.4-litre petrol V8, matched with six-speed automatic and, as a special factory order, manual transmissions. Upgraded versions of both models – dubbed 650Ci and powered by BMW’s new 270kW 4.8-litre V8 - arrived in November 2005 priced at least $2000 lower. A 2008 model year upgrade in January of that year brought mild updates and a name change from 650Ci to 650i Sport, but before both models were discontinued in April 2011, when they were last priced at $227,300 (coupe) and $245,100 (convertible).
