CR Model Summary
Based on the 5 Series, this grand tourer comes as a two-door coupe or convertible, as well as the four-door Gran Coupe. Power comes from a 3.0-liter, turbo six-cylinder or a 4.4-liter V8, mated to either an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual. The V8 delivers ferocious acceleration and an invigorating exhaust note. Handling is much sharper than the 5 Series, making the big coupe more of a driver's car than its predecessor. The M version is even more performance oriented. The manual transmission is unusual for this class and works very well, making this car very fast, capable and enjoyable on the track. All-wheel drive is available.
