MULGRAVE, AUSTRALIA – Marc 27, 2013: BMW Australia today announced details of it’s first ever diesel powered 6 Series, the BMW 640d Gran Coupé, to be available from March production 2013.

BMW Group Australia managing director, Phil Horton said the diesel engine is a perfect fit for the refined and luxurious BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.
