So is it a sleeker F10 underneath or an extended F13?

Love the tail lights and interior. Ipad seems to be the theme for i-drive monitor these days.

I just wish the front headlights could be more adventurous. It's a bland shape, only helped by the inner reflectors/projectors.

Wow. Just wow. That interior is absolutely, stunningly gorgeous. I used to think Audi and Mercedes had the upper hand on BMW's interiors but damn does this look good.

The m version will have a different flavour of the m5 engine with 600bhp. Well that's the m6, anyway.

Sure it's beautiful but it's too sedan-y for my taste. I think Audi did a much better job with their A7, making it a 4-door coupe. Same with Benz and CLS.

I bet people will confuse it for the 5er...

+ 1

How much though? CLS/ A7 price point or more expensive than the coupe (and or the cab). I bet the title 'gran coupe' subtely hints at it being the most expensive of the trio, in which case its aiming squarely at the panamera. Thoughts?

This car looks perfect in every way! Gotta see more of the M Sport version, or even the M6 if they intend on making one. Either way, beautiful looking 6!

I will take the better looking CLS for about $20k less.

I bet you could get a CLS63 AMG for ther price of this thing.

One thing that I don't get is a how 5 people are going to fit in it as marketed. Because I believe I see a console where the 5th passengers legs would be.

The performance figures are more impressive 445 HP, 480 Torque !!!!

0-60 : 4.6 on 650GC
0-60 : 4.5 on 650GC XDrive

I want to test drive and get one if I like it. The starting price prediction for the 650GC is 73,600

Exactly. It looks good for a sedan, but that's what It looks like. A sedan. Both the A7 and the CLS def don't look like sedans. They may not look exactly like coupes either, but they are far cries from looking like a sedan with a squished green house.

Again, quite nice looking for a sedan, but not nearly as interesting as its competitors.

Agree 100%.

Plus I believe people will gasp when they release US pricing. It will not be cheap. Most likely way overpriced for the segment.
