JOY TURNS DRIVEWAYS INTO FINISH LINES. BMW EfficientDynamics Less emissions. More driving pleasure.
  2. 2. JOY RAISES THE BAR. What elicits joy in driving? At BMW, it’s about raising bars – as we have with the new  Series Coupe for . To turn heads in traffic, the new  Series Coupe sports bold, new styling. To our lineup of high-performance powerplants we offer the push-you-back-in-the-seat thrill of not one, but two advanced, fast-response dual-scroll TwinPower Turbo engines. And to our acclaimed -speed manual and STEPTRONIC automatic transmissions we’ve added a -speed, paddle-shifting Double Clutch Transmission that changes gears in a flash, with no interruption in power. Why all these enhancements to a car that has been selected among Car and Driver’s “Best” Cars for a record  years running? Our joy – and yours – is born of striving for perfection. Not resting on laurels.
  3. 3. Editorial A BREED APART. Is it surprising that we sell a lot of manual transmissions to  Series Coupe drivers? For them, it isn’t about Point A to Point B. Pavement is their playground. It’s not uncommon for a Coupe driver to hop in and just… drive. These enthusiast drivers keep our engineers up at night, creating innovations to satisfy virtually insatiable driving appetites. It’s for this breed of driver that we created the new is High Performance model, brandishing a -hp turbocharged engine with  lb-ft of torque that boosts to  lb-ft of track-worthy acceleration. Of course it’s available with a -speed, sport automatic Double Clutch Transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. After all, to a Coupe driver, joy is always a hands-on experience. There are also not one, but two dynamic TwinPower Turbo inline six .-liter engines with High Precision fuel injection. Both give Coupe drivers what they crave: more power with increased fuel efficiency and virtually no fun-robbing “turbo lag.” And, of course, for all  Series The new BMW Technology Equipment Overview Coupe models, we offer an array of performance-enhancing technol-  Series Coupe ogies to keep “coupistas” grinning from ear to ear.

  6. 6. Joy loves the environment. That’s the idea behind BMW EfficientDynamics: more driving pleasure with minimized fuel consumption and less emissions. On the outside, all BMWs are wind-tunnel tested to optimize a body shape that minimizes fuel-wasting aerodynamic drag. Under the hood, BMW engines continue to win awards for ever-more powerful output along with advanced fuel-extending technologies, such as the unique Valvetronic engine breathing technology and High Precision injection. Do you love both sporty driving and our planet? Your Coupe is waiting. Please obey all posted speed limits on your way to your BMW center. bmwusa.com/efficientdynamics SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGY THAT BMW EfficientDynamics Less emissions. More driving pleasure. DOESN’T FORGET TO SUSTAIN THE FUN. 10 11 Exterior
  7. 7. NEW LIGHTING – THE BETTER TO SEE AND BE SEEN. Joy is brilliant. Consider the new lighting for the   Series Coupe. At the front, circling the daylight-bright Xenon headlights are four Corona headlight-rings, now powered by bright LED lights. Also used as Daytime Running Lights, the headlight-rings’ distinctive look announces your presence to other drivers. The far edge of each headlight fixture is illum- inated with a daring LED “string” array; above, a new light trim bar gives the  Series Coupe a focused look. Moving to the rear, new long-lasting LED tail- and brakelights are arrayed in horizontal tubes that illuminate simultaneously, creating a unique, eye-catching design with depth and dimension. And inside the cabin, the drama of warm Ambiance interior lighting, streaming down from under the ledge on the door and side panels, puts you and your passengers at ease. It’s easy to see: your BMW  Series Coupe will own the night.
  8. 8. Joy is confident – whether you’re turning into a tight country-road bend, accelerating onto the busy Interstate, or twisting through hectic city streets. The  BMW  Series Coupe puts you in firm command with intelligent vehicle technology like Active Steering, which matches steering response and feel to your driving demands. For instance, at low speeds the steering wheel needs only two turns lock-to-lock, making parking gymnastics a breeze. As you accelerate, it actively adapts the steering ratio to maintain a consistent, razor-sharp feel. Meanwhile, Dynamic Stability Control and Dynamic Traction Control help prevent driving problems before you notice them. And, of course, like all BMWs, the  Series Coupe is balanced with near-perfect / weight distribution and a race-proven suspension, engi- neered to provide the pinnacle of driving performance – all of which can be experienced on a stretch of blacktop near your BMW center. NO MATTER WHERE, THE BLACKTOP BELONGS TO YOU.
  9. 9. ADVANCED DESIGN. YET ONE GLANCE SAYS “BMW.” Joy is timeless. That’s why BMWs produced ,  or even  years ago still look current. This is not by chance. Our spirited designers ceaselessly innovate to advance the BMW look into one that is of its time – yet timeless. The  BMW  Series Coupe is no exception. Its iconic BMW kidney grille is now wider and integrated into the  Series’ athletic shape, with an eager stance and new, longer hood. These work in perfect harmony with the sporty low roofline, distinctive shoulder line, crisp new hood creases and the tail’s elegant short overhang. Even the sleek new side-view mirrors were created to blend effortlessly into this powerfully sculpted design. It’s the newest expression of the classic BMW  Series allure. 16 17 Exterior
  10. 10. CLOSE THE DOOR. RELAX – YOU’RE PROTECTED. Joy gives you peace of mind. That’s because every BMW bristles with active and passive safety features. In addition to quick acceleration, powerful fade- resistant brakes and agile handling, the  Series Coupe’s active safety features include daylight-quality Xenon Adaptive Headlights that automatically level and illuminate around corners, and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which help keep you coolly in command when wheelspin threatens. Passive features, which become very much active when required, include advanced front- and side-impact air bags; a reinforcing door-anchoring system that, in a side impact, hooks a reinforcing bar between the door and the body to create a rigid passenger cell; and an ultra-stiff body made of advanced steel. There is also optional BMW Assist,™ which automatically calls for help immediately after airbags deploy, locates your vehicle if it’s stolen, and a host of other reassuring features. Active or passive, BMW safety technologies are always working to care for you and your passengers. For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts section at the back of this brochure.
  11. 11. In addition, VR enables the early assessment of design alternatives. Each design can be visually represented, evaluated and compared. A -D model is generated based on the design. To do this, the computer subdivides the vehicle into tiny triangles, or polygons, placing over the design a virtual grid that describes the vehicle’s geometry. In this virtual world, designers and engineers can view the future vehicle and even move around in it. In the so-called CAVE (Cave Automated Virtual Environment), the observer, sitting in a car seat, is surrounded by walls that have real-time moving images projected onto them. In this way, the viewer gains the realistic impression of a cockpit with all its switches, displays and a natural landscape surrounding the vehicle. A radio signal provided by special -D glasses tells the computers what the “driver” is currently looking at, and a data glove enables him or her to operate the vehicle’s controls. This allows verification of the cockpit’s layout and ergonomics. The software is so clever, it displays light reflections in the vehicle’s windows, and even shows the quality of the materials. In this way, designers can enjoy their first “test drive” before the first prototype is built. Despite its amazing degree of realism, virtual reality is only one tool in the design and development of a new vehicle. It is no substitute for creativity, experience and intuition. Even today, every vehicle design begins with a sketch – still the quickest way to visualize an idea. And of course, the designer also has to be able to see and work on a full-scale clay model, to get a sense for the feel of the design, and to be able to develop and perfect the unmistakable character of every new BMW. The computer has simplified and accelerated much in the design process. But for a final understanding, designers still need to be able to touch and feel the actual design in the form of a physical model. How to turn the two dimensions of a screen display into -D: in the CAVE (below), the driver feels as though he or she were actually sitting in a car and driving through a landscape. In this way, features and characteristics, such as cockpit ergonomics, can be tested. EXPERIENCE TOMORROW, TODAY. To create the perfect vehicle, BMW designers and engineers do much of their work in a computer-generated virtual reality. This enables early design verification, shortening development cycles and saving resources. The future vehicle can be viewed from any perspective. You can zoom in and out, and turn it in any direction. You can open the doors, or look under the hood. You can even get in and take a seat. But this vehicle, as convincing as it may look, is not made of metal and plastic. It consists of data – an unimaginably huge amount of data, converted into spatial images by high-performance computers. The images feel as real as reality, even though they are only a simulation. Virtual Reality (VR) is the watchword of today’s automotive engineers. In the past, it was necessary to create several prototypes in order to test various modules. Today, designers, developers and product engineers in the BMW Research and Innovation Center work on a single digital model that they optimize on-screen. This protects the environment, lowers costs and shortens The projection screen (top) shows, with minute precision, what a future vehicle will the development cycle. look like. Details can be enlarged to any desired magnification.
  12. 12. SCENERY CAN BE TOUCHING. SO CAN INTERIORS. Joy is tactile. Come, sit and feel the difference. It’s in the premium materials we use throughout the cabin, and the expert care with which they are crafted. The surfaces of the comfortable, ergonomically designed seats are wrapped in supple yet durable Dakota Leather. The steering wheel and shift lever are covered in hand-stitched leather, ready for action with a racing-inspired feel. Instrument rings, interior door handles and more are finished in a pearl-gray brushed metal with a satiny feel. All other surfaces are invitingly soft, yet firm, to the touch. Please visit your BMW center for a test touch.

  13. 13. Joy enlightens. Imagine you’re driving down the road in your new  Series Coupe in the middle of East Nowhere, en route to West Whoknows. You’ll stay connected when your BMW is equipped with on-board Navigation. Select “Navigation” from the four iDrive buttons and the monitor lights up. Now you’re on the right track, following directions on the -D map. Press the “Telephone” button and up pops your “Contacts” screen. Select the phone number and you’re connected. Now you have company. All the while enjoying peace of mind knowing that Automatic Collision Notification, Emergency Request, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Door Unlock, Stolen Vehicle Recovery and more are just a push of a button away, thanks to BMW Assist.™ Simply put, you can fit a world of information inside your BMW  Series Coupe. How’s that for roomy? bmwusa.com/iDrive For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts section at the back of this brochure. PUT THE WORLD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. 24 25 Interior
  14. 14. THE WORDS “BACK SEAT” AND “HOSPITABLE” WILL NOW APPEAR IN THE SAME SENTENCE. Joy welcomes rear-seat passengers. In the  Series Coupe, the front seats slide forward quickly and easily, and the retracting front safety belts means your guests won’t have to be contortionists to get in. Once comfortably seated, your guests will appreciate the conve- nient center console rear armrest with individual storage boxes, air outlet vents, footwell lights and convenient cupholders. When you visit your BMW center to inspect the new  Series Coupe, we suggest you test the rear seats, too. It’s surprising how hospitable and spacious a sports coupe can be.

Convenience. “In dark, unlit areas, Automatic high beams give me all the light I need without dazzling oncoming drivers.” Automatic high beams let you enjoy the convenience of switching between high and low beams automatically. When the Automatic high beams system is activated, an image sensor at the back of the rear-view mirror monitors oncoming traffic and lighting conditions. Based on this data, the system decides whether or not the high beams should be switched on. When it detects vehicles ahead, or the sensor dictates that ambient light is sufficient, the high beams are automatically switched off. BMW’s on-board Navigation system uses Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites and data stored on an internal hard drive to guide you to your destination, which is displayed on a : high-resolution screen. Enhancements include -D daytime and nighttime maps, zoom, travel planner, and an Assistance Window.
