BMW has teamed up with one of the best audio equipment makers in the world and introduces the 2015 BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe “Bang & Olufsen Edition,” which combines the ingenuity in design and engineering of two luxury brands.
Production will be limited to 100 units of the BMW 650i Gran Coupe that will come with either rear-wheel drive or BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive powered by BMW’s TwinPower Turbo V8.
10 units out of the lot though will be extra special. Called the BMW M6 Gran Coupe “Bang & Olufsen Edition” vehicles, it will come equipped with the Competition Package that enhances the most powerful engine ever fitted to a BMW production vehicle by raising its output from 560 to 575 hp. As early as now, orders are being taken on a first-come-first-served basis with deliveries this summer.
It will come only two BMW Individual colors – Brilliant White Metallic or Dark Graphite II Metallic.
The cabin is anything but average. It will come with the finest handcrafted Merino Leathersin either Black with Contrast Stitching/Piping or Opal White & Black with Contrast Stitching/Piping that is complimented by a Piano Black Wood Trim with a “Bang & Olufsen” inlay on the front cup-holder lid as well as specially designed floor mats. The M6 Gran Coupe adds the M logo uniquely embroidered into the front headrests in the M colors.
Being Bang & Olufsen editions, it will come with top-notch audio equipment. It will come with Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System with 16 active loudspeakers powered by 1,200 watts with good looks as well coming from grilles with a brushed black aluminum finish making its debut on this edition.
If that’s not enough, this model will come with Cold Weather Package as well as the M Sport Edition (which is comprised of the M Sport Package, Executive Package, LED Lighting Package, and Driver Assistance Plus Package). The M6 Gran Coupe also comes with high-performance Competition Package, Executive Package and Driver Assistance Plus Package.
To top it off, every BMW Individual ‘Bang & Olufsen Edition’ also comes with a set of black BeoPlay H6 high-end headphones specially finished in the same brushed aluminum treatment as the car’s loudspeaker grilles.
