Although BMW has organized many changes and improvements for its 2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupé, it is likely that this trip has a dark approach to his home. It may be quite possible that the company might not particularly believe that any type of convertible to the 2018 6 plus series because they have to focus on the Coupe and Grand Coupe. It is really credible, but we can observe the final creation of the convertible of your series 6.
The latest CAR Magazine story indicates that the future 6er will be called G15 and will be much lighter than what we have in our aisles today. Built on the 35up architecture (which will also receive a new name: CLAR), the new Coupé, Convertible and Gran Coupé models will be lighter up to 200 kg (442 lbs).
There will also be better differentiation between the coupe and the cabriolet on the one hand and the Gran Coupe on the other. While the latter will aim for more indoor seating and comfort, the other two will aim to change the way people view them as big tourists instead of sports cars. This is where the Porsche element comes into play. The character of GT that the current models were not appreciated by the management who wants to “go back to its roots”. This means lighter construction, better elasto kinematics and a better overall driving experience.
BMW will play the tech card, according to Automobile Magazine. The company’s next big coupe will be available with an advanced rear wheel steering system and a full air suspension, although both devices will likely be found on the options list. Mechanically, the 6 Series will usher in a brand new six-cylinder tuned inline to generate 550 horsepower at the V8 through the use of four turbochargers, while the M6 will continue with a twin-turbocharged V8 to over 600 horsepower. two variants of rear wheels and all-wheel drive will be available.
We will know more about the upcoming BMW 6 Series in the coming months. He will arrive at the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019, no matter what form it takes.
