BMW’s new 6 Series Convertible will make its debute ahead of its scheduled March 26th appearance, hosted by Astle BMW in Scunthorpe.
The exclusive showing will be hosted from 10 to Noon, Saturday March 5th, at the Old Crosby showroom.
The chassis system is cutting edge, the engine is the highest rated at fuel efficiency, safety, infotainment, and comfort are all also the best in its segment.
Andrew Linton, Scunthorpe’s General Sales Manager for Astle, said, “This is a great car and we are proud to show it off to our customers ahead of time. The fuel consumption alone is worth bragging about, considering the class of vehicle. It only uses 10.7 litres for every 100 km. That is a significant selling point in these troubled times if fuel prices rising and rising.”
“As well as the efficiency of the engines an extensive range of BMW EfficientDynamic technologies also contribute to reducing fuel consumption and emissions. These include Brake Energy Regeneration, Electric Power Steering (EPS), the need-based operation of ancillary components, intelligent lightweight construction and low-rolling-resistance tyres.
“The new BMW 640i Convertible is also equipped with automatic active air flap control and the Auto Start-Stop function so when the driver draws to a standstill at a junction or in a traffic jam the engine automatically switches off.
“As soon as the driver releases the brake pedal, the engine starts up again. If the driver is using the Auto Hold function, the engine is restarted when the accelerator is depressed.”
The BMW 650i Convertible completes the sprint from 0 to 62mph in 5.0 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.
Furthermore it is the only car in its segment to be available with a Head-Up Display which allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road by projecting current speed or navigation instructions onto the windscreen and within the driver’s field of vision.
The selection of optional driver assistance systems includes a rear-view camera, Surround View, BMW Night Vision with pedestrian recognition and BMW Parking Assistant.
The new BMW 6 Series Convertible again comes with an electrically powered soft-top roof which can be opened and closed automatically using either a button on the centre console or by using the remote control button on the car key.
Opening the roof takes 19 seconds, the closing process 24 seconds. Both operations can be activated while on the move at speeds of up to 25 mph.
The car will be available in the eight-cylinder powerplant in the BMW 650i Convertible which produces 300 kW/407 hp and an exclusive variant of the six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo, direct injection and Valvetronic – generating 235 kW/320 hp – has been developed for the BMW 640i Convertible.
The car comes as standard with Drive Dynamic Control, which allows drivers to choose their own suspension settings, while the Adaptive Drive system is available as an option with electrically controlled dampers and roll stabilisation.
