Following a Malaysian preview of the car at the BMW M Track Experience Asia event held at the Sepang International Circuit earlier this year, Pils said customer interest in the BMW M6 Coupe has been highly encouraging.
“I am confident that with its exceptional performance, stunning aesthetics and assuredly BMW efficiency, the new BMW M6 Coupe will prove to be a popular choice in the market, allowing us to further strengthen our presence as Malaysia’s best-selling premium automotive brand,” he said.
The second-generation BMW M6 Coupe was first unveiled to the world in June.
The car features a dynamically contoured, lightweight roof made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic.
In a statement, BMW said its engineers were able to reduce overall weight and lower the centre of gravity of the car for increased agility. BMW engineers also created a stylish contoured centre line design to improve air flow.
Other features such as the addition of numerous M-specific design features such as the large air inlets which assist in cooling down its powerful V8 engine, flared wheel arches which give the car an increase of 30mm in width, aerodynamically optimised side sills, M exterior mirrors, and the hallmark quad tailpipes which are iconic to the M brand, further add to the car’s sports character.
The new BMW M6 Coupe would be able to achieve a 0-100 km per hour sprint in just 4.2 seconds. “Despite the car’s impressive performance capabilities, the BMW M6 Coupe continues to be a true BMW with efficiency that has become the envy of its immediate competitors,” BMW said.
“No other car delivers such a level of dynamic performance, premium ambiance, stylistic look and feel, and efficiency better than an M car, and the BMW M6 Coupe is at the top of that very select family.” said Pils.
The new BMW M6 Coupe would be available for purchase at BMW dealerships throughout Malaysia starting today at a retail price of RM988,800.
