BMW Individual has continued its torrent pace of releasing new programs for its models. Not even recent releases can stop the Bavarian automaker from unveiling a new one, this time for the BMW 6 Series and the M6 Gran Coupe .
This time around, BMW enlisted the help of Bang & Olufsen to give the 6 Series and the M6 Gran Coupe a unique and luxurious sound system befitting the status of the high-end audiophile. But that’s not where the upgrades end.
Both the 6 Series and the M6 Gran Coupe received a new Sophisto Grey metallic paint finish, further driving up the class of both luxury models . The Opal White, fine-grain Merino leather adds a nice complement to the black exterior while the Alcantara headliner and piano black interior trim pieces provide the latest touch of luxury. BMW Individual continues to be identified as a division that can really make something good and turn it into something great.
