SALON PRIVÉ CONFIRMS BMW FOR 2013
July 24, 2013 by BMW Syon Park, London, 24 July 2013
– BMW confirms its return to Salon Privé this year with the M6 Gran Coupé and the M5 Saloon.
Revealed for the first time at the Detroit Motor Show 2013, the M6 Gran Coupé, based on the 6 Series Gran Coupé boasts new M design features, such as an ultra light carbon-fibre reinforced roof and 20' M double-spoke light-alloy wheels, exclusive to the Gran Coupé.
It also utilises the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine, which uses twin VANOS and Valvetronic intelligent technologies to provide optimum fuel and oxygen intake for every driving situation. Despite its impressive performance, the Gran Coupé only consumes an average of 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres and is therefore one of the top of its class.
The M5 Saloon which made its debut in May, on the eve of the 24-hour Nurburgring race, will also feature at this September's Salon Privé. Improvements to the new M5 include boosting the 4.4-litre V8 engine from 552bhp to 567bhp while also introducing a new sports suspension, which lowers the vehicle by 10mm.
Tickets for Salon Privé can be purchased at www.salonprivelondon.com or by calling the Ticket Hotline on 0808 100 2205. Entry is fully inclusive of Pommery champagne, lobster luncheon, English afternoon tea and full access to all areas.
