The BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo was showcased at the recently held Autocar Performance Show 2018. On sale in a price bracket of INR 61.80 lakh to INR 73.7 lakh (ex-showroom, Pan-India), the Sportback-style model launched at the Auto Expo in February 2018.
Speaking on the aesthetics of the BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo, Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, has said-
The new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo is geared towards discerning customers who place great importance on individuality. It is an eye-catching statement, packaged into a flowing, sculptural design language which gives the car a modern and sporty feel. The raised seating position ensures an imperious brand of driving a pleasure, and the luxurious levels of space provide everything you need for a relaxing journey.
While the BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo launched exclusively with a petrol engine variant, a diesel motor was introduced in June 2018. The oil-burner is a 3.0-litre straight-six that outputs 265 hp and 620 Nm. The petrol variant draws power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 255 hp and 400 Nm. Both the motors come mated to 8-speed automatic transmissions.
