Research by Year

The first 6 Series models appeared in the 1970s as a continuation of BMW's elegant 2800 and 3.0 coupes, and continued in production until 1989. The Bavarian automaker put the 6 Series on hiatus while the 8 Series reigned supreme in the 1990s.

In 2004, however, the 6 Series returned, this time adding a convertible to the lineup. Controversial styling was notable for a bulging trunk lid—a styling element that vanished in a 2012 redesign. The current BMW 640i is powered by a 3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque.

In addition to its restyling, the new 6 Series is 2.9 inches longer and 1.5 inches wider than the previous generation. Also added in 2012 was the all-new 640 sitting as the base model in the lineup. The 640 featured a 3-liter six-cylinder engine with 315 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and an eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission.

In 2006, the 645Ci stepped aside for the 650 and its 360-horsepower 4.8-liter V8. In 2008, the 6 Series lost its sequential manual gearbox in favor of a sport-tuned automatic transmission, and received a slight refresh in styling.
