BMW 6-Series Gran Coupé information leaked

Details of the upcoming BMW 6-Series Gran Coupé have been leaked. The large executive coupé will premier at an forthcoming motor show later this year.

According to reports out of the U.S, the 6-Series Gran Coupé will share the same wheelbase as the 5-Series at 2,967mm (117”) but will be shorter by 89mm (3.5”) and wider at 1,902mm (74.9”). Like the regular 6-Series Coupé and cabriolet, the Gran Coupé will sport a squat stance. This is help further by a 5,006mm (197.1”) bodyshell, making it 51mm (2”) longer than the Mercedes CLS coupé.

Like its direct competitor, frameless windows will feature, alongside a B-pillar. The doors and bonnet will be constructed from aluminium, while the front wheelarches and rear bootlid will be made from special plastics, to lower kerb weight and reduce repair costs. Like its siblings, xDrive variants will be available, in addition to rear-wheel-drive.
