Thats a pretty good price, hardly anything over the Coupe version. Actually drove one about 10 days ago, feels very similar to the Coupe, which is a good thing.

Pricing seems at par with the 730Ld , choosing between these two models will be a classic mind v/s heart situation.

86 ?? Isnt that ~10 lakh more than the A7/CLS ?
IIRC both of them are going for heavy discounts as well since they aren't selling but then they weren't meant to sell in huge numbers anyway.
The pricing could play spoilsport for what is otherwise a gorgeous car (save for those headlights) IMO.

Rated FE of 18.18 kpl is almost unbelievable for a 3.0L 6-pot TwinTurbo diesel motor cranking out 300 horses!!

Me believes the Gran Coupe is priced about 8-10 L more - at least - especially for an introductory offering considering she'll be flirting perilously close with the 1 Cr. mark OTR in most states. So it'll be interesting to see how this Bimmer goes off the shelves.

Not quite liking the flattened corona rings btw.

Truly stunning !

The 8 speed AT is the winner here making those Acceleration & FE figures possible.

PS - Is that the new frozen paint job ?

Nice looking car! Though they are really stretching the limits of what a "coupe" is



Interesting to see they've used the same seats as the 2-door. Note the seat-mounted belt, as well as the buttons to move the seatback for entry to the +2 seats?

Beautiful. Some of the technology (not mentioned here but exists on this car), sounds pretty awesome (even tho. i'm not a big fan of too much tech in cars).
I'd be totally torn between this and the CLS if I wanted one of these four door "coupes".
However, I'd still rather go for the M6 if I ever moved back to the US, or a country that has actual roads to drive on.

Beautiful! A timeless design, me feels! The white upholstery looks tasty and delicious and with Diesel range, 3.0 L 6-pot twin turbo motor and a mileage of 18.18 kmpl! Sounds irresistible. Are these matte colors optional or a standard fitment? Loaded to the gills with tech, this is simply awesome!

But now, there is a dilemma between this and 7-Series. If I were to think with my heart, I would pick 6, else 7. So, Do you think with your head or heart?

Keep revvin'

Really? I think it's a pretty good price. It's in Audi A7 / CLS territory. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that it's a great deal when you compare it to the Panamera diesel which retails at just over a crore! Let's not forget that when you buy such cars, you've got to be prepared to spend another 10 lakhs once you're done with the options list.

Just my opinion Suhaas - I think we'll have a polarized set here. Sure it is in the A7/CLS territory - but then the Audi is tagged at around 73 large ex-showroom Delhi while the three-pointed-star retails at just over 81 L. That's like a 10% gap. I would've thought they'd have priced it in that region just to get some traction upon launch. Moreover, like you correctly pointed out that after you've forked out another million or so to beef it up with options, it looked rather steep to me. But that's just me.

You stole my words, quite literally above

I might be in this dilemma soon however the head is winning as of now coz the on road price of the 730Ld is a less due to less RTO tax on CKD. To top it off more the 7 is available at handsome discounts now.

Any clue how much discounts are currently on the A7 and CLS?

No clue about the CLS since its only sold as a petrol and a CLS 350 is as redundant as a car can possibly get as of today ! Runs on expensive fuel which isnt exactly of the best quality hence the car isnt all that quick either. All i do know is that the CLS is going for discounts undoubtedly.
Now the A7 - Have an acquaintance who recently bought it and registered it MH/15 ( Nashik) and he bagged an ~8 lakh discount !
Word is, Audi are offering anywhere from 8 upto 10 lakhs discount on the A7, which with the 3.0 TDi is fairly quick (6.3) and looks beautiful too but it isnt a twin-turbo like the BMW. Unlikely that Audi will get the twin-turbo diesel A6/A7 here.
