BMW unveiled its new 6-series Gran Turismo to replace the previous 5-series GT and said it will go on sale in November after making its first public appearance at the Frankfurt car show in September.

In the U.S., the car will be powered by a 3.0 liter 340 hp gasoline six cylinder engine, while in Europe it will be available with that gasoline engine plus a 258 hp 2.0 liter four cylinder motor and a 265 hp six-cylinder diesel.

No word yet on price, but the U.S. version is likely to cost upwards of $80,000.

BMW said the 6 Series Gran Turismo is longer and sleeker than the car it replaces and offers more headroom and trunk capacity despite reduced vehicle height. 

You can opt for Remote Control Parking, a WiFi hotspot for up to 10 devices, and remote 3D view. You can have 4-wheel drive too.

The GT range, blending the luxury of a sedan with what BMW calls coupé looks, was first launched in 2009.

The 3.0-liter 340 hp power plant will accelerate the car from zero to 60 mph in about 5 seconds. There’s a rear spoiler that automatically extends when the car exceeds 75mph and retracts below 50mph.

This will help the police by drawing their attention to a vehicle breaking speed limits. The Active Cruise Control is operational at speeds of  up to 130 mph. Many highways in Germany still have no speed limits.
