Santa Barbara Auto Group Explores Luxury Performance Design of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

BMW Santa Barbara shares the remarkable design and performance of the four-door flagship car – the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe.


BMW Santa Barbara’s newest addition to the 6 Series line-up is the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe.  This powerful model is four full inches longer than its sister coupe design.  Featuring four doors, the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe offers California drivers ample space and seating for four occupants while delivering an extraordinary driving experience.

Driving Power

Santa Barbara drivers can choose from two engine options for the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe – a six cylinder and eight cylinder.  The flagship 4.4L turbocharged V8 powers 650i models and delivers a full 400hp at 5,500 rpm and 450lb-ft of torque.  It is paired with a paddle shifted 8-speed automatic transmission or an optional 6-speed manual for the ultimate in control and handling.  Regardless of transmission choice, the 650i is fast, rocketing from 0-60mph in just under 5 seconds.  Moreover, the Gran Coupe comes with available all-wheel drive for 2013, offered exclusively for the V8-engine.

Ultimate Safety Design

In addition to the progressive driver technology, California drivers will appreciate the latest safety features of the Gran Coupe as well.  These include anti-lock brakes, traction control, an anti-skid system, and front and curtain side airbags. Also available are blind-spot alert, a lane departure warning, a full-color heads-up display, and both rear and top view cameras.

The BMW 6 Series also makes use of electronically assisted steering, while optional Active Steering utilizes rear-wheel steering to give better maneuverability and stability at high speeds. BMW’s Driving Dynamics Controller lets the driver customize steering and throttle response, the suspension, stability control action, automatic transmission shift points and firmness at the flip of a switch. Standard features also include steering-linked headlights, navigation, and a premium leather interior.

Elite Styling

One of the most significant aspects of the 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is its dynamic design, which marries the low swooped styling of the 6 Series with a 4-door body. Similar to the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS, the Gran Coupe is a “four-door coupe” with lines that emulate that of a traditional 2-door, while still offering plenty of space for passengers in the rear. Also new to the 6 Series line up is a new 6-cylinder engine costing significantly less to operate than the 8-cylinder powering 650i models.

For those in the market for a true grand touring car, the BMW 6 Series is among the best choices available today. The new 6 Series Gran Coupe is sure to impress drivers with its sophisticated and clean look. It’s a great choice for those who value performance and comfort equally.
