Gran Turismo 6!
We aren’t talking about the video game, but the Beemer
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.
