‘THIRD TIME'S A CHARM?’

The third-generation BMW 6 Series is a car that came good on the quiet. The lower-key styling failed to generate too much in the way of column inches, but the truth was that in MK3 guise, this model morphed into a very good car. A Mercedes-Benz SL might do the grand touring thing with more conviction and a Porsche 911 delivers a bigger sporting adrenaline hit, but if you want a car that can do both, the third generation 6 Series coupe makes a strong case for itself.
The 640d diesel would be our choice, but there's something to be said for the sheer eyeball-flattening acceleration of the M6. Either way, you've a very complete luxury Grand Touring sports coupe indeed.
