BMW has announced the newest addition to their lineup, the third-generation 2012 6-Series 650i Coupe, set to go on sale this fall in the U.S.
The 2012 650i Coupe follows the launch this spring of the new 2012 650i Convertible
BMW’s new 6-Series coupe will feature a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8, 400-horsepower engine, 450 lb-ft of torque, an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters with an optional 6-speed manual transmission, a top speed of 155 mph and a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds.
Still highly recognizable as a 6-Series coupe, the look of the new car is at once more sleek and smoother than the car it replaces. About 1.5 inches wider and 3 inches longer with a wheelbase of 112.4 inches, the new 6-Series coupe is a larger, roomier car than its predecessor, but features aluminum doors and hood, with the trunk, front fenders, and roof being constructed of reinforced composite to reduce the overall weight.
