The second generation of the BMW 6 Series, designated the E63, was produced by BMW from 2003 to 2010 at the Dingolfing BMW plant. The E63 uses a shortened version of the E60 5 Series chassis and subsequently shares many features. The car initially drew criticism, due to its controversial styling and complicated iDrive system. The exterior was designed by Adrian van Hooydonk, based on the 1999 BMW Z9 concept car designed by the then BMW Design Chief Chris Bangle. The controversial rear styling, first seen on the E65 7 Series, was nicknamed "Bangle Butt" by critics. BMW described the styling philosophy as "flame surfacing", where concave and convex shapes meet to create sharp edges. To reduce weight, the doors and bonnet are made of aluminium, and the boot and front wings are made of carbon-reinforced plastic. The kerb weight is 1,490–1,930 kg (3,280–4,250 lb). The Coupé models were unveiled at the 2003 Frankfurt Auto Show, and introduced on the market in mid of the 2003 model year. Top speed for all models is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The E63 models feature BMW's Advanced Safety System, enabling the car to decide the most effective deployment of the airbags in a crash. Safety equipment includes active anti-roll bars, dynamic stability control, front knee airbags, BMW roadside assistance and an SOS emergency system. Convertible models also feature an automatic rollover protection system, where roll-bars behind the rear seats are automatically deployed in a rollover. From 2008, active head restraints became a standard feature on all seat options, reducing the risk of neck injuries in a rear-end collision.

The 645Ci offered here was originally delivered to Singapore on the 1st of July 2004 and imported into the UK in July 2021. Having covered a mere 11,715 miles from new, this BMW is described by the vendor as being as close to perfect as you can find. Offered with the original handbook, two sets of keys and invoices for servicing carried out in the UK, this BMW 6-Series is an attractive coupe with usable seating for four adults, a large boot for extended holidays and a powerful engine for transcontinental journeys just waiting for its next enthusiastic owner.
