Autoblog has just posted their photos and reaction from an early preview of the 2012 BMW 6-series coupe from Munich. The F13 6-series coupe [official info and photos] will make its world public debut at the Shanghai Motor Show in two weeks, alongside the just revealed F10 M5.

The F13 coupe's head design Karim Habib revealed to Autoblog that the inspiration for the F13 came from the BMW 3.0 CS from the 1960-70s – notably the long wheelbase, lengthened hood, and sharknose front.

Another interesting bit is that the F12 convertible info was introduced prior to the F13 coupe because it makes up the majority (60%) of 6-series sales in the U.S.

Head on over to Autoblog for their entire reaction and photos.
