The year 2017 starts the JMS Fahrzeugteile GmbH impressively with the BMW brand! A complete body kit for the F30 / F31 3 Series just appeared a week ago, and now it’s the turn of the big brother F06-F12-F13 and here the entire range is available on request. Let’s start with the newly developed body kit, which consists of a complete front apron including a front splitter, which is in the style of the M-Sport package, but still looks a bit more massive.
The new side skirts are also much more prominent and emphasize the sleek shape of the BMW 6 Series. At the rear, there is a completely redeveloped rear apron with an integrated rear diffuser insert, which offers plenty of space on the right and left for the standard exhaust system or the Eisenmann sports exhaust system with 120 × 77 mm tailpipes. Also, worth mentioning are the additional fender inserts and the two hood accessories (Racelook Exclusive Line) from Munich.
To meet the visually sportier demands for dynamics, the exhibition car was also equipped with a set of Cor. 20 inches rims and lowering of about 3 mm in the front and 40 mm in the rear with the KW Coilover suspension Variant 35.
As it suits a Gran Tourer like the 6 Series, the engine line-up is made up of high-volume, supercharged units. The base model is the 640i (a 315bhp three-liter inline-six petrol engine), one of two petrol engines available. The other is the 650i – a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 that produces no less than 442 hp and accelerates from 0-62 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
Among the diesel engines, the 640d is the only option: a twin-turbo 3.0-liter unit with 308bhp for stylish and economical cruising. And with a 0-60mph sprint of 5.5 seconds, it’s no slouch either. Sadly, America doesn’t have that.
Depending on the market, each version can be equipped with xDrive all-wheel drive. It also gets an eight-speed automatic transmission out of the box.
For 2015, more aerodynamic tricks and EfficientDynamics technologies have been implemented under the hood of the 6 Series, making the engines even more economical. Once again, the 640d is the real star.
There’s also the BMW M6, with its mighty V8, but that’s simply too beautiful not to be featured in its own section.
In developing the third generation of the 6 Series, the engineers have focused on comfort, and it shows immediately. The 6 Series Coupe is ready to take you wherever you want to go (as long as there are roads), no matter how far: it will literally have your back.
If you’re one of those drivers who are always in a hurry, the Dynamic Drive system with Sport+ mode and anti-roll bars is available to keep you on the road for as long as possible. It’s also worth remembering that this is a big sports car: It weighs at least 1,760 pounds.
While it hasn’t been crash-tested by the IIHS or EuroNCAP, you can bet that the Bavarian Pure GT is a safe bet in case something goes wrong.
Standard safety equipment is extensive, with airbags for all types of vehicles and electronic active safety assist systems hidden under the acronyms DSC and DTC.
