BMW has introduced a raft of new performance features as well as an improved fuel consumption figure for its revised 6 Series Sport Coupé and Convertible.
Due to arrive on Australian shores in November, the revised 6 Series gains Brake Energy Regeneration technology as standard equipment which improves consumption by up to 6.8 per cent without sacrificing performance.
The 650i Sport Coupé is now rated at 10.5 litres per 100km representing a 5.4 per cent improvement while the 650i Sport Convertible improves by 6.8 per cent, for a new combined cycle rating of 10.9 litres per 100km.
The technology forms part of BMW’s EfficientDynamics repertoire and reduces fuel consumption by generating electric power from energy otherwise wasted as lost heat in the brake system.
“The new BMW 650i Sport further shapes the top end of the BMW product portfolio and signals yet another example of BMW’s uncompromised BMW EfficientDynamics strategy,” said BMW Group Australia managing director Stavros Yallouridis.
Both models also feature a new contoured engine compartment lid with arrow-shaped character lines, new 19-inch light allow wheels with low profile tyres, BMW Individual high-gloss shadow line, tailpipes in dark chrome and an exhaust system with a distinctive sound character.
The latest generation iDrive control system has also been added featuring a high resolution 8.8” monitor with professional navigation, high definition TV and fixed 80GB hard drive.
Sport seats in four choices of leather trim, an M leather steering wheel, interior strips in brushed aluminium, an anthracite-coloured BMW Individual roof liner and a lighting package define the sporty character of the interior.
Two new exterior colours are also available, Imola Red and Carbon Black, with exclusive Pearl leather upholstery inside which can be replaced with Saddle Brown light, Chateau, Cream Beige or Black at no extra cost.
Pricing for the new BMW 650i Sport Coupé is $227,300 and $245,100 for the BMW 650i Sport Convertible.
