The BMW 650i delivers stellar performance, refined handling and the unique combination of elegance and sportiness that defines BMW. After a one-year hiatus, the 650i returns with revised styling, enhanced power and available all-wheel drive.
Available as a coupe or convertible in both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations, the 650i and 650i xDrive boast a new 400-hp 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with direct fuel injection; available transmissions include a six-speed manual or a new eight-speed Sport automatic with manual mode and shift paddles. The 650i is equipped with a sport-tuned suspension, Dynamic Driving Control, 19-inch aluminum wheels, adaptive bi-xenon headlights and Comfort Access keyless entry/start. Inside its lush cabin, the 650i provides seating for four, with high-quality leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control and genuine wood trim. A voice-activated hard drive-based navigation system, including 12 gigabytes of dedicated media storage, HD radio and Bluetooth wireless connectivity are also standard. Safety features include anti-lock brakes, electronic stability and traction control, front and rear parking sensors with rearview camera, active anti-whiplash front head restraints and up to eight airbags. A Driver Assistance Package is offered, providing more advanced systems such as lane-departure warning, blind spot detection, head-up display and an automated parking assistant. The 650i can also be outfitted with active cruise control and night vision, while progressive new options for 2012 include full LED lights and Integral Active Steering.
The BMW 650i is completely redesigned for 2012. Updates for the new generation include a 400-hp twin-turbo V8, 8-speed automatic transmission, 19-inch aluminum wheels, LED fog lights and multi-contour front comfort seats. The M Sport Package will also be available, and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system is offered for the first time on any BMW. Additionally, two new all-wheel drive models have been added to the lineup.
The BMW Z4 has the classic two-seat roadster look, but features a modern two-piece power retractable hardtop. The result is an elegant looking car that blends the sportiness of a coupe with the enjoyment of a convertible.
The Z4 is offered as three different models, sDrive28i, sDrive35i, or sDrive35is. Power for the sDrive28i comes from a 241-hp 2.0-liter direct-injection, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The sDrive35i is powered by a twin-turbo, 300-hp 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, while the sDrive35is gets a 335-hp version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual, eight-speed automatic, or an advanced double-clutch seven-speed transmission. Standard features include Driving Dynamics Control which allows the driver to change the vehicles characteristics between normal, sport, and sport+ mode, adaptive brake lights, and a two-piece lightweight-aluminum hardtop.
For 2012, the sDrive30i has been replaced by the sDrive28i sporting BMW’s new TwinPower four-cylinder turbo engine.
