BMW launches 6 Series diesel blaster

Blasting in: The BMW 640d has eye-widening performance chops for a diesel.

Potent diesel joins BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe range as $185k 640d touches down

2 Apr 2013

BMW has launched a potent diesel version of its 6 Series Gran Coupe that accelerates from zero to 100km/h in less time than a HSV GTS.

Dubbed the 640d, the newest member of the Bavarian brand’s slinky four-door range is powered by a 230kW/630Nm 3.0-litre direct-injected turbo-diesel engine.

The oil-burning unit is not the same as BMW’s other recently revealed hi-po diesel, the unique triple-turbo from the X5 and X6.

Despite weighing around two tonnes, the 0-100km/h dash is dispatched is a swift 5.4 seconds – coincidentally the same as the 640i petrol variant. Meanwhile, relaxed driving will yield combined-cycle fuel usage of 5.7 litre per 100km.

Just as the sprint time matches the 640i petrol, so does the price – both retail for a hefty $184,800 plus on-road costs.

The first ever diesel-powered 6 Series model can be ordered now, with first examples likely to arrive around May.

Meanwhile, the even faster 650i petrol retails for $238,800, while the big daddy 412kW/680Nm petrol M6 will touch down later this year.

Standard gear includes 19-inch alloy wheels, full colour head-up display, rear-view camera, four-zone climate control, adaptive LED headlights with high beam assist, professional navigation system, multifunctional instrument display and smart phone connectivity.

BMW Group Australia managing director Phil Horton described the diesel engine as a “perfect fit for the refined and luxurious” model.

“This diesel engine has effortless and efficient performance and will add additional appeal to the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé line-up,” he said.
