Gran Turismo 6!

We aren’t talk­ing about the video game, but the Beemer

Evo India - - NEWS - WORDS by AFZAL RAWUTHER

BMW HAS LAUNCHED ITS 6 Se­ries Gran Turismo priced very ag­gres­sively at `58.9 lakh (exshow­room, Delhi) for the 630i petrol ver­sion while an­nounc­ing that a diesel ver­sion will make its way to us in the se­cond half of 2018. Both the petrol and diesel en­gine GTs will be as­sem­bled at BMWs Chen­nai fa­cil­ity.

Un­like the old 5 GT that this car re­places, the 6 Se­ries GT looks very el­e­gant with the notch­back rear of­fer­ing both acres of room and in­creased prac­ti­cal­ity. And talk­ing about space, the 6 Se­ries GT runs on the long wheel­base ver­sion of the 5 Se­ries plat­form and will tar­get the cur­rent E-Class's big plus point – acres of rear seat space. The 6 Se­ries GT also has air sus­pen­sion for added com­fort over all kinds of roads.

This BMW uses a 255bhp, 2-litre, tur­bocharged, four-cylin­der mo­tor mated to an 8-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. It also gets ‘cool’ fea­tures like ges­ture con­trol for the in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, re­mote park­ing, mood light­ing and a Bow­ers & Wilkins sound sys­tem with a 10-chan­nel am­pli­fier.
