For four decades, the BMW 6 Series has built upon a performance coupe heritage that for the Munich maker, now stretches back over seventy years. Cars like the classic BMW 3.0 CSL were amongst those that in race trim established this German brand as a force to be reckoned with across race tracks the world over. In road form, their emphasis was a little different, with most models aimed more at Grand Touring than Grand opposite-locking gestures. M versions were provided for lead foots, but the majority of buyers were more likely to be setting off for a wine tour around Burgundy than a lap of the Nurburgring. That was certainly the way of things with the second generation version, launched in here 2003 and it's an approach that was further refined by its successor, the third generation 6 Series - or F13 coupe - launched in 2011.
This car looks more dynamic, with styling in this form that looks arguably more elegant than that you get in the mechanically identical Convertible model. More importantly perhaps, it can claim to be a proper sports car, providing you press the right buttons and tick the right options. This is thanks to a whole phalanx of high technology provided to sharpen the driving experience on offer as and when owners feel it to be necessary thanks to the standard Drive Dynamic Control system and the optional Adaptive Drive and Active Steering features. An evolutionary approach perhaps, but an impressively thorough one. But does it stack up as a used proposition?
The third-generation BMW 6 Series is a car that came good on the quiet. The lower-key styling failed to generate too much in the way of column inches, but the truth was that in MK3 guise, this model morphed into a very good car. A Mercedes-Benz SL might do the grand touring thing with more conviction and a Porsche 911 delivers a bigger sporting adrenaline hit, but if you want a car that can do both, the third generation 6 Series coupe makes a strong case for itself.
The 640d diesel would be our choice, but there's something to be said for the sheer eyeball-flattening acceleration of the M6. Either way, you've a very complete luxury Grand Touring sports coupe indeed.
