BMW`s increasing success on exotic markets like Japan or China, lies in its ability to offer market-based special programs that would make its models more appealing and extremely appreciated.
It also what happened to the 2018 BMW 6-Series GT, now available in Japan with the GT M Sport Debut Edition package.
We are looking here at a limited-run of just 40 examples, each one costing a staggering $113,341 at today`s exchange rates, or the equivalent of 12,890,000 Yen.
For that money, Japanese customers get to enjoy a high-end model with M goodies at the exterior and luxury features inside the cabin.
From a visual standpoint, the 2018 BMW 6-Series GT M Sport Debut Edition is wrapped in Sophisto Gray colour from BMW Individual, adding 20-inch M alloy wheels with blue-finished calipers, chrome accents and a few more.
Inside, the cabin welcomes you with the finest materials like cognac Dakota leather seats and piano black trim. The high-tech gizmos are also a must, and comprise 9.2-inch infotainment system, Bowers and Wilkins premium sound system, rear-seat entertainment system with colour screen, DVD drive, gesture control of four-zone climate control.
Based on the 640i GT, the 2018 BMW 6-Series GT M Sport Debut Edition is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, other than the one found on the present M3 or M4, meaning 335 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. Performance figures weren’t provided, but it might come with the same as the US models – 5.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, with the help of an eight-speed automatic and top speed of 250 km/h.
