BMW 650i Overview
There are few premium car manufacturers in the world that can compete with the so-called "German Big Three" in terms of the all around performance of their vehicles, not to mention appearance and luxury. The “German Big Three” includes, of course, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
Founded in Munich, Germany in 1916, BMW was initially created to manufacture aircrafts. After the conclusion of World War I, BMW began to expand its horizons, creating motorcycles and automobiles in the 1920s. For the last 85 plus years, BMW has all but perfected the art of luxury automobile manufacturing.
One of the triumphs of BMW as of the last several years is the second generation of the 6 series. After the success of the first generation of the 6 series, the expectations for the second generation were high, and BMW did not disappoint. With the series introduced in 2010, production began in 2011. Over the last few years, the cars that belong to the 6 series family of vehicles have impressed to say the least.
BMW 650i: Made to Impress
Next to 6 series highlight the M6, the 650i is the most impressive vehicle to come out of the current generation thus far. With a much more powerful engine than its little brother the 640i, the BMW 650i is nearly as high performing as it is luxurious.
One of the perks of having this higher performing engine is the increase in horsepower. The BMW 640i has 315 horsepower, which is respectable, but the increase to the 650i’s 445 horsepower is going to be difficult to turn down for potential buyers. The engine of the 650i is a 4.4 liter BMW made twin turbo V8, which is capable not only of producing this impressive amount of horsepower, but also 480 ft-lbs of torque at the car’s ideal rpm.
