BMW Australia announced yesterday the introduction of the gorgeous 2018 BMW 6-Series GT (Gran Turismo), an exceptionally fun-to-drive car with impressive high-performance capabilities.
Australian customers will be able to choose between two variants: the 630i GT, available at $123,500, as well as the top of the line 640i xDrive GT, which comes with a higher $148,900 price tag.
As we can depict from the media gallery below, the all-new 2018 BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo comes with a bigger body style; after all, we are looking here at the official replacement of the 5-Series GT; and it is supposed to be bigger and wider, just like any other new model within the carmaker`s lineup.
Speaking of sizes, the new 2018 6-Series GT is now 87mm longer and 20mm lower, providing the model with better grip and stability. The space boot is also increased to 610 liters, with the rear seats folded down.
Inside, the cabin welcomes you with the same luxurious feel BMW has to offer at this point, like leather upholstery and contrast stitching.
Technologically, the brand-new 6-Series Gran Turismo is state of the art, being equipped with the same high-tech suite as its European counterparts.
We are dealing here with the newest iDrive6 media interface with 10.25-inch touchscreen, along with 12.3-inch digital display for the instrument cluster, 16-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system, dual-climate zone climate control and so on.
Those looking for the M Sport Package, will be able to have the new 6-Series GT equipped with M goodies, like 19-inch M alloy wheels, M Sport braking system or active rear spoiler.
In the engine department, the 2018 BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo comes with a 2.0-liter turbo flat-four petrol burner in the 630i GT standard version, developing 190 kW and 400 Nm of torque. This makes it quite fast from 0 to 100 km/h – 6.3 seconds.
The topper 640i xDrive GT features a higher 3.0-liter turbo inline six-cylinder mill, with 250 kW and 450 Nm of torque. The same sprint is done in 6.3 seconds.
As for fuel consumption, both models burn less than the previous 5-Series GT, with 7.2L/100 km and 8.5L/100 km, respectively. You can admire the gorgeous and luxurious 2018 BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo in the media gallery below!
