The 2013 Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner and BMW have released a list of cars that will be unveiled during the event!
BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo
The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo marks its world premiere in Geneva, augmenting the mid-range premium segment with a high-end option. An entirely independent concept within the successful BMW 3 Series range, it embodies a unique reinterpretation of the need for space and functionality. This third body variant of the current model family unites the sporty-dynamic genes of the Sedan with the practicality and versatility of the Touring.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe
BMW’s M-Performance division will showcase a third body variant of its high-performance BMW M6 sports car for the first time at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The new BMW M6 Gran Coupe combines hallmark M performance attributes within an extraordinarily handsome and luxurious design, featuring extra room for the four-door Coupe.
Expect a V8 power unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology developing 560hp and peak torque of 680 Newton metres (502 lb-ft). Engine power is channeled to the rear wheels via a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic. Other features include the Active M Differential at the rear axle, an M-specific chassis, variable-ratio hydraulic steering and a high-performance compound braking system.
2014 BMW Z4 Facelift
Having already made its debut at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, it sports new exterior features, detailed interior refinements, a new equipment package and a new entry-level engine. Three new body colours are available with the new Design Pure Traction option. For the interior, black and orange tones make for a particularly stimulating color contrast.
It comes with 17-inch and 18-inch light-alloy wheels, as well as the optional M Sport package. The all new Z4 sDrive18i is powered by a 2.0-litre engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and 156hp. The new entry-level engine can also be specified with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
With its eDrive powertrain, the BMW i3 is designed to require a battery recharge just once every two to three days in typical commuting use. That equates to a range of between 130 and 160 kilometers (80 to 100 miles). The drive system and all other vehicle functions in the BMW i3 are powered by a specially developed high-voltage lithium-ion battery, a hallmark of which is its energy output. An optional range extender is also available, increasing the driving range to approximately 300 kilometers (186 miles).
Also showing at the show will be the BMW Concept Active Tourer and the BMW ConnectedDrive which will reveal a new range of technology from the car maker.
