BMW 6-Series Coupe will be available with diesel option, M Sport Package at launch

When BMW unveiled the 2012 BMW 6-series Coupe earlier this month, it only introduced the new coupe to use as a 2012 650i Coupe. In Europe, the 2012 BMW 6-Series Coupe will be available with two engine choices including the 320-hp 640i and the 400-hp 650i.

At the time of the introduction, BMW did not say whether the 6-Series Coupe will be offered with an all-wheel-drive variant or when the diesel and M Sport Package will be available.

According to sources, the diesel and M Sport Package will be available in Europe at the time of launch – in September. Of course, the 2012 BMW 6-Series Coupe won’t get a diesel variant here in the United States but cross your fingers for the M Sport Package to be available from the start.

Refresher: Power for the 2012 BMW 650i Coupe comes from a the  company’s 4.4L twin-turbo V8 engine making 400-hp between 5,500 and 6,400 rpm with a maximum torque of 450 lb-ft between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. Mated to BMW’s new 8-speed Sport Automatic gearbox or the traditional 6-speed manual transmission, the 2012 650i Coupe goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
