BMW X1 and M6 US Versions

German carmaker BMW will present several incredible vehicles at the New York International Auto Show next month. Some of them are the M6 Convertible and the other one is the X1 Sport Activity Vehicle. The M6 is powered by a 560 M Twin-Power Turbo V8 engine that sends the power to the wheels through a 7-speed M-DCT transmission. This enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4.3 seconds. The BMW X1 is the latest vehicle to offer the TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that has very low fuel consumption. The new improved car will be available in showrooms this summer. The model received several design updates and the interior was modified to offer more comfort for the passengers. This model will be offered as three distinct models in the US. One is the BMW 640i Gran Coupe powered by the TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine, then there is the 650i Gran Coupe powered by a TwinPower Turbo V8 engine and last, but not least, the all-wheel drive 650i xDrive Gran Coupe.

The iconic BMW M6 Convertible and Coupe return from a two year hiatus more powerful, more athletic, more focused, more luxurious and more efficient than ever before. Since the "M6" badge was first placed on a BMW back in 1987, this model has exemplified the luxury and daily usability of a top range BMW coupe combined with true super-car performance. Now, in its 3rd generation, the all-new BMW M6 sports a new 560hp M TwinPower Turbo V-8 mated to a 7-speed M-DCT transmission capable of propelling either model from 0 to 60mph in under 4.3 seconds.


The hotly anticipated BMW X1 Sport Activity Vehicle comes to the U.S. for the first time. Its rising horizontal lines give it a sporty, elegant profile, while the classic BMW kidney grille, distinctive headlights and L-shaped taillights are unmistakably BMW. The BMW X1 is also the latest BMW vehicle to offer the TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine which delivers BMW performance with reduced fuel consumption. The updated BMW X1 will be available in U.S. showrooms in summer 2012.


The recently updated BMW X6 M Sports Activity Coupe combines the athletic and elegant lines of a coupe with the character of a BMW X model and an outstanding driving experience. The new X6 M receives several design updates and innovative features intended to emphasize its width and track and road-holding prowess.


Introducing the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe ? a new 4-door, 4+1 seat addition to the 6 Series line that successfully combines the stunning proportions, design and driving dynamics of the 6 Series Coupe with interior room and amenities for up to five passengers. Harmonious proportions, precise lines and sleekly contoured surfaces give the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe the unique ability to satisfy the driver who wants a luxurious and sporty coupe yet needs a car capable of carrying four adults in comfort and luxury. The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe will be offered as three distinct models in the USA. The TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder powered BMW 640i Gran Coupe is the initial model and arrives early this summer. Later this summer, the TwinPower Turbo V-8 powered 650i Gran Coupe and the all-wheel drive 650i xDrive Gran Coupe will join the range.
