Just moments ago, BMW revealed the new 650i Coupe. Along with a new and fresh design, the 2012 6 Series Coupe brings advanced technology features and a more upscale interior design.

The car has a body length and wheelbase 75 millimetres longer than the predecessor model, increasing seating comfort for rear passengers. The width track has also been increased by 39-millimeter while the height was reduced 5-millimeter.

At launch, BMW offers two engine variants: BMW 650i Coupe with eight-cylinder powerplant (300 kW/407 hp), BMW 640i Coupe with six-in-line petrol unit (235 kW/320 hp).

Both engine variants come as standard with an eight-speed Sports automatic gearbox; BMW EfficientDynamics measures unmatched in the segment (including Auto Start-Stop function and ECO PRO mode in the BMW 640i Coupe); optimised efficiency combined with significant output increase over predecessor models of 30 kW (BMW 650i) and 35 kW (BMW 640i).

To learn more about the interior and exterior design, we invite you to read the interviews from last year’s Paris Motor Show.
