The dynamics and efficiency of the BMW 6 Series Coupé.

From the moment you hear the BMW 6 Series Coupé’s sports exhaust system in action, it’s clear what you’re dealing with: high-torque engines, an expertly-crafted chassis and transmission technologies all tailored to create the perfect sporting driving experience. Launch Control enables maximum acceleration and a maximum pulse rate. In everyday use, you can rest assured that, thanks to sophisticated BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, no driving manoeuvre consumes any more fuel than is absolutely necessary.

Sports exhaust system.

The full-bodied sound of the sports exhaust system perfectly complements the vehicle's overall athleticism. The sound can also be modified using an integrated exhaust valve mechanism, which is controlled by the Driving Experience Control. The dynamic SPORT and SPORT+ driving modes are enhanced by a thrilling, even more distinctive sound, while the comfort-oriented modes are accompanied by more discreet engine acoustics that are better suited to longer journeys and a more luxurious driving experience.


Excellent roadholding, high-precision steering and immediate responsiveness. An ideal balance between agility and stability. The BMW 6 Series Coupé gives you a palpable sense of dynamics. Powerful engines and the standard-feature eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission guarantee a comfortable driving feeling, starting the moment you pull away and continuing all the way to top gear. Optional systems such as Integral Active Steering ensure directional stability and even more dynamic driving characteristics. Controlled power that turns every journey into a one-off experience.
  • The BMW 6 Series Coupé offers offers precise handling and absolute directional stability. This is due to the chassis, which guarantees optimal contact with the road surface and ideal handling in all situations. The chassis combines perfectly tuned technical components, evenly balanced 50:50 weight distribution between the axles, as well as rear-wheel drive.
    The rear axle ensures that the engine power is transferred dynamically to the road.The double-arm front axle and the integral rear axle also form part of the chassis, and to help reduce the weight of the vehicle, both are made primarily of aluminium. In the case of the BMW 6 Series Coupé less is more: less mass, more agility, comfort and safety.
  • Integral Active Steering for vehicles with rear wheel drive combines steering for the rear wheels with a variable steering angle for the front axle. At speeds of up to approx. 37 mph, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction the front wheels. The seemingly shorter wheelbase improves manoeuvrability and agility. From approx. 37 mph upwards, the rear wheels turn in parallel with the front wheels. The wheelbase feels longer, which improves stability as well as comfort – especially when changing lanes quickly or abruptly.
  • Drive Performance Control offers the driver the choice between COMFORT mode, for the standard engine and transmission settings, ECO PRO mode, which is geared towards greater efficiency, and SPORT mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. ECO PRO mode adjusts the characteristics of the accelerator and transmission as well as the heating/air conditioning settings to make the drive as fuel-efficient as possible.
    ECO PRO mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. Further fuel savings can be achieved using the "cruising" mode, the route-ahead assistant and ECO PRO route. The route-ahead assistant uses the navigation system to assess local road conditions and give tips in advance. If there is a speed limit change around the next bend, the system advises the driver to slow down before the bend.
    ECO PRO route also helps to ensure the efficient use of fuel. It suggests an efficiency-optimised route that takes into account the volume of traffic, individual driving style and local conditions. In SPORT mode, the car responds more directly, leading to a more dynamic driving experience.

Exhilarating sportiness

Eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.

The eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission adapts to suit individual driving styles. It is perfect for everything from comfortable cruising through to a very dynamic drive. In addition to automatic gear selection, it is of course possible to change gears manually at any time. This can be done using the dynamically designed selector lever or the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.
In Sport mode, the gears are configured for maximum performance. Thanks to the fine increments and eight gears, the engine’s power and efficiency are always optimised. It also makes acceleration faster, when overtaking another vehicle, for example.
When travelling at high speeds, the additional eighth gear reduces the required engine speed, thereby reducing the fuel consumption and engine noise. This is also where the newly developed converter clutch comes into play. The eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers the greatest comfort and efficiency when changing gear.
  • Launch Control is a function included in the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, which enables maximum acceleration from a standing start. To use this function, activate DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) by briefly pushing the DSC button (Dynamic Stability Control), move the gear stick to the "S" position, firmly hold down the brake and press the accelerator pedal to kickdown. Release the brake while maintaining kickdown, and the vehicle will accelerate to the maximum until the accelerator is released. This is a feature designed to delight drivers with dynamic, sporty ambitions.
