New details on the upcoming BMW 6-Series

We've got new info on the upcoming BMW 6-Series.



The new 6-Series will ride on a new platform that will first be seen on the 2016 7-Series. The 'CLAR' platform uses lightweight materials like magnesium, aluminum, titanium and carbon fiber. That should let the new 6-Series shed 440 pounds over the current model.

The new 6-Series will come in coupe, gran coupe and convertible body styles. The gran coupe will get a slight bit longer to make a more spacious cabin, but the two door models will both go down in size. This should make the new 6 sportier and more nimble to drive.

All 6s will be available with a 347-horsepower 3.0-liter gas-burning straight six, a 3.0-liter straight-six turbodiesel rated at 333 horsepower and a 4.4-liter V8 that can produce 476 hp. The M6 will have the same V8 engines tuned for 600 horsepower.

This coupe should show up in dealerships in 2017 as a 2018 model.

Not bad at all.
Along with shedding weight they should also look into giving it hybrid power for performance along with some fuel efficiency (which will come naturally to some extent)
