Arriving as the successor for the 5 Series Gran Turismo, which found 24 local homes to the end of August this year, the 6 Series Gran Turismo will endeavour to rocket up the sales charts.

According to BMW Group Australia CEO Marc Werner, generous technology and equipment levels will be critical elements to the new model's success.

"The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo features a lot of technology we have seen rolling out in the BMW 5 Series and 7 Series in recent times," he said.

"With a fresh take on exterior styling that is lower and longer, a generous and comfortable interior, leading-edge connectivity and high standard specification, the 6 Series Gran Turismo is a fantastic family proposition."

The latest BMW will go toe-to-toe with the Audi A7 Sportback and Mercedes-Benz CLS when it arrives in November.
