What is it? The Gran Coupe is a four-door version of the 6 Series coupe that takes on the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz CLS.
Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions will be available when the car goes on sale. The first car, the $76,895 640i, will use a turbocharged six-cylinder engine. The turbocharged V8-powered 650i and all-wheel-drive 650i xDrive will arrive later, priced at $87,395 and $90,395, respectively.
What is new or notable? The Gran Coupe packs in a small extra rear seat, giving seating space for up to five occupants.
CRs take: The luxury market certainly is in full swing as BMW adds more powerful-but-not-so-practical versions of the 6 Series to its lineup.
When will it be available? June, then late summer for other versions.
