News: BMW New 6 Series diesel with xDrive


The 2012 640d xDrive is the first time the 6 Series has used a diesel engine

The 3.0-liter inline six with TwinPower turbos throws off 313 horsepower and 465 pound-feet available at 2,000 rpm.

Working through the standard eight-speed automatic will get you from 0 to 60 in five seconds!

This is also the first 6Series to be fitted with Intelligent xDrive, which routes 60 percent of the power to the rear and 40 percent to the front in normal conditions and shuttles power from front to back and side to side depending on traction and the sporting intensity of your cornering.
