The launch of BMW 6 Series Convertible

BMW has launched its new 6 Series Convertible car at The Leela Palace Kempinski, Udaipur. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible is available as a petrol variant and can be ordered at BMW dealerships across India. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible is available in India as a Completely Built-up Unit (CBU) and is priced at Rs. 95 lakh (ex-showroom). Dr Andreas Schaaf, President, BMW India said, "The new BMW 6 Series Convertible with its breathtaking aesthetics is the perfect vehicle for an exclusive lifestyle. The elegant silhouette, torquey engine, perfect road holding and refined interiors with perfection to the smallest detail, create an ultra-luxurious open-top driving experience that could not possibly get any better."  The new BMW 6 Series Convertible comes with an 8-speed sports automatic transmission with rapid and precise gear changes with gear shift paddles on the steering wheel. It also features Drive Dynamic Control, which allows drivers to vary the car’s sporting characteristics and comfort by choosing the desired suspension settings (Normal, Sports and Sports+). The new BMW 6 Series Convertible conceals unmatched power beneath the hood, combining instantaneous power development, majestic torque and outstanding smoothness. A 4.4 litre V8 engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology and direct injection develops a maximum output of 300 kW/407 hp between 5,500–6,400 rpm as well as maximum torque of 600 Nm all the way from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible accelerates to 100 km/h in just 5 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/hr.  The company said it is targeting sale of upto 60,000 units in the next ten years in the Indian market and will invest an additional Rs. 70 crore by 2012. "In the next ten years, India’s luxury car market is expected to grow ten times to up to 1.5 lakh units...we will certainly enjoy 35 to 40 per cent of the market by then," Mr.Schaaf said. The Indian luxury car market stood at about 15,000 units in 2010 and the company sold 6,246 units to become the numero uno, he added "We are stepping up investment in India. In the next two years, we will increase our investment to Rs. 180 crore from the existing Rs. 110 crore in the country," Mr Schaaf said. The company has recently acquired additional land to enhance the size of its facility in Chennai to 40 acres, up from 22 acres earlier. BMW India recently hiked its production capacity to 10,000 units from 8,000 units. "We will invest in the brand, network expansion and new products. We will continue to maintain leadership in the Indian luxury car market," he said.
